So when a member of my Relay for Life team said she found a refrigerator box and wanted to know if anyone would make something with it to decorate our spot for the relay, I jumped at the opportunity. I decided to make a TARDIS because our event was travel themed and what could possibly be cooler than time travel?!
So I took the box to my parents' garage and spray painted all of the sides blue. It took two cans of paint just to cover each side once and put a second coat on the front side. I used black construction paper for the top of the box, and cut the letters out of paper as well. I just printed out "POLICE PUBLIC CALL BOX" and cut out the letters to make stencils. I cut out little white squares for the windows, and found a photo of the sign on the door to print out. I used a craft knife to cut out the doors, leaving some space on the top and the bottom to keep it stable. The kids at the relay had a lot of fun jumping out of the TARDIS and trying to scare people walking by.
Unfortunately, the TARDIS does not fit through the door of my apartment, so I had to get rid of it, but I am on the hunt for other, slightly smaller appliance boxes to make cool stuff with. Are any Dr. Who fans with larger front doors interested in hanging out in an awesome cardboard TARDIS? Please tell me I'm not the only one who's this nerdy...
