A surprise Doctor Who-themed card box!

Tardis card box

Offbeat Bride Tribe member KarenMarie has an awesome friend named Vicki who made her an even more awesome surprise card box. Check out how her friend turned a diaper box and some office supplies into a card box. (Hint: it's bigger on the inside!) Still not sure what I'm talking about? Watch as the secret unfolds…

The raw materials.
Hmm… that is a familiar shape.

A slit at the top for the cards.

Hi sexy.

Yes! It's A Tardis card box! I love watching it appear out of nowhere, much like the Tardis itself, just appears. I couldn't help but hear this noise the entire time. Vicki, you are awesome. And KarenMarie, you are lucky.

  1. I love it!!! We're definitely going to have to add some geeky details to our carnival wedding.

  2. This is so happening. Amazing. Its all I'm going to think about today.

    3 agree
  3. You know, I hadn't been sure of whether or not to make a card box, but now I think I have to. Regardless of whether or not any cards get put in! (We asked for our guests to donate to charities in lieu of gifts.)

  4. we've been in the middle of making our TARDIS cardbox for a while now. we're using wood though, so it's taking a bit longer. AWESOME.

    • same! though i outsourced it to a woodworking friend of ours, every now and then paint swatches show up in my letterbox (picking tardis blue is reeeeally hard)

  5. I heard the noise as well! And as the ninth doctor would say- Fantastic!

  6. Totally awesome! We've already got Tardis invites…and our Photobooth backdrop might be the Tardis as well…so in an effort to keep our wedding everything geek, not just Dr Who themed, I'd have to avoid having this, haha :)
    Certainly an awesome idea though!!

  9. I love you so much for posting this! It's coool. My FH is talking about doing something similar to refrigerator box only with a door flap and shoulder straps on the inside so he can wear it. He wants to dress up as the doctor (10th) and wear it around for hallows; stepping out and (in his heinously bad British accent) going "Hello! Hm what's this, I'm thinking 2011 on the western cost of the United States?" Oh how I miss David Tennant.

  10. Love it! When I get married, I'm thinking of sending vague invitations on a TARDIS blue card with just the time, date, coordinates and our names.
    This would go perfectly with the invites and my TARDIS charm for my bouquet!

    2 agree
  11. I just finished making my TaRDIS card box from this tutorial! She still needs a paint job and I feel so accomplished knowing I did it and I think it looks awesome!!! :)

  12. I absolutely ADORE this idea! I wanted to incorporate something Doctor Who into my wedding and this will be perfect! Not only because I'm a big fan, but because my sweetie and I actually watched the first episode of the 9th Doctor on our very first date!

  13. Hi I've just had a lady make me one of these and it is amazing! It comes with a flashing light and everything I knew I would never be able to re create it and am over the moon I promised her if she did it I would try and find other brides interested in buying them her Facebook page is artisan cards and crafts there is a photo of mine half finished on there
