Dr. Who Tardis Project

Number One Granddaughter is a Dr. Who Enthusiast.
 
And her birthday is this month..... I had this fold out cabinet box from Ben Franklin...the ONLY one left...and the store closed.
 
So, I decided to give this ideas a shot.
 
 
It folds up like this. I know the squares are supposed to be recessed, but I was under a time constraint, and this worked out for me.
 
 
I copied the sign and printed it off, and the keyhole is a washer.

 
Two mini canvases on the the top helped build up the box. The light was my biggest problem...but it turned out interesting, if not exactly like the original.
 
The Vintaj piece is bent to go around it and the snap button on top says Imagine on it. No idea where it came from.



You pull open the front and it has 4 drawers inside covered with Graphic 45 papers.
 

 
Each box has a magnetic clasp and they open up to store treasures.
It fit perfectly onto a wooden base I found at Lowe's. I think it's a fence post piece.
 
It's amazing what you can find in all the drawers in my studio...half the fun is making something work that wasn't designed for the purpose you've given it.
 
Happy Birthday Brittany Janelle.

Love! As a Dr Who fan myself, this is awesome! Your granddaughter will be over the moon! I recognize the box, and there is a possibility I may still have one. Time to dig. This is so creative, thanks for sharing it!
