DIY Tardis Police Box iPhone Cover
So i made an iphone 5 Tardis case for my bestie coz… i don’t have an iphone :\ haha also i love her and we love Doctor Who!
Here’s what i used:
- a piece of tardis blue cardboard
- a small piece of black cardboard
- an iphone case
- a piece of foil
- a piece of contact paper
- a print out of the police box logo/windows/sign found here.
- a craft knife
- a blue marker
- a pencil
First I used my foil to get the outline of the case. Place the foil INSIDE the case and gently push into the corners till you get a nice mould. Run your nail along the edges to cut it and remove the extra bits. The foil should fit exactly inside the case. Don’t forget to do this for the camera opening too!
Remove the foil and trace its outline on a piece of blue cardboard. Cut this out and you’ve got your tardis!
Print out the template and cut out the pieces. Use the Tardis sign to make the rest of the panels for your tardis. Cut out a strip of black cardboard. This will run down the middle of your tardis.
Now I found that the rest of the panels didn’t stand out enough what with being the same colour as the base. I took a dark blue marker and outlined each box. That didn’t work for me either, it just looked too odd. By chance one of the panels got flipped over. You know when marker runs through paper to the other side? Turns out that was exactly what I wanted! YAY
Arrange all the pieces on your blue case template and stick them down! You’re basically done now. Just to make sure bits didn’t tear or fall off, I covered mine with some contact paper.
Slip it into your case and enjoy!
I added a little silly quote on the back just for fun ☺
