A surprise Doctor Who-themed card box! #Decor DIY#card boxes#doctor who Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jun 29 2011) Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin 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.

I couldn't help but hear this noise the entire time. Vicki, you are awesome. And KarenMarie, you are lucky.

We're definitely going to have to add some geeky details to our carnival wedding. Reply This is so happening. Amazing. Its all I'm going to think about today. Reply Brilliant!! Reply I'd been thinking about doing this! 😀 Thanks for the pics! Reply 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.) Reply 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. Reply 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) Reply I used the cookie jar from Thinkgeek, removed the removeable lining and the bottom (just a few screws), and then attached it to a hat box to allow more room. Bigger cards couldn't fit in it, but it was great hitting the top and hearing the tardis talk 😀 (we stuck a note on it saying it opens as well) http://www.flickr.com/photos/k8et/5884991233/in/photostream Reply Do you have a photo of your Tardis? Reply I heard the noise as well! And as the ninth doctor would say- Fantastic! Reply 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!! Reply Love it! I had a mini Tardis in my bouquet. Doctor Who ftw! Reply I love it!!!! I was also tickled that there was a dinosaur in the background of many of the pictures 🙂 all around greatness. Reply 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. Reply 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! Reply 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!!! 🙂 Reply Stealing this! ^_^ Reply 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! Reply 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 Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
