TARDIS Chocolate/Trinket Box by aria-arissa TARDIS Chocolate/Trinket Box by aria-arissa
If you liked this, please do me a favour and reblog/like here: the-suigeneris.tumblr.com/post…

---

A gift for a Whovian friend, made from 80% recycled paper materials (cardboard, cereal cartons, catalogue papers, etc.), inspired by another photo making its way around the internet, of an adorable TARDIS chocolate box by Michelle Quinnseen here.

The walls are made from four pieces of rectangular cardboard, held together by sturdy cardstock wrapped around them and painted dark blue. The boxes (including the three stacked squares making up the roof) are stiff cardstock folded into origami boxes and glued together where appropriate. The little light at the top was made using a stiff plastic sheet, cut to shape, scored and folded before adding the roof and gluing it all in place. I added the little details as well, like the ‘POLICE BOX’ labels and the notice outside the door (all handwritten), and the tiny door handle made using thin, twisted wires. The whole thing was then given a few coats of varnish to seal in the paint and give it a smooth appearance.

UPDATE: I have made another TARDIS for sale, and am currently considering different methods of selling. Would it be better for me to set a price and put it up on Etsy or sell it on eBay for people to bid on??

UPDATE 2: It is now available for sale at my Etsy shop, here: www.etsy.com/uk/listing/152284…

They are just boxes made from stiff card and wrapped in nice paper. I glued the side of each box onto each of the four 'wall' panels of the TARDIS. :)
