Hey everybody!! I'm going to show you how I make an Amazing Pop-up Tardis from the popular sci-fi show, Dr Who. This was a fun build and my first Instructable.

I have drawn up all the templates and parts for you in powerpoint lol (it took quite a while to get right). Just download the PDF's and assemble it!

It looks awesome and is a great gift for Dr Who fans. Enjoy!

Step 1: Materials and Equipment

Materials -
- 1x A4 blue CARD (desired tardis colour)
- 2x A4 white PAPER (for printed finishes and interior card base)
- 1x A4 CARD (any colour for mounting the Tardis)

- access to a computer and printer
- needle + thread
- tape
- glue
- X-acto knife + cutting mat
- scissors
- ruler


That is so awesome!
I love it!
Amazing work! <br>Congratulations!
Thank you so much for this!! Brilliant brilliant brilliant
<p>Haha settle - no worries :)</p>
Fantastic job! I salute your talent, but even more than that, your patience.... :D
<p>Thanks :)</p>
<p>I thought this would take a few minutes, but as usual I was wrong. It was fun to build.</p><p>Thanks for the plans.</p>
<p>Glad you enjoyed it :)</p>
<p>I know this is a bit older and I doubt I'll get a reply in time, but does it HAVE to be A4 paper/card or would letter size work with the templates? </p>
<p>We don't really use the letter size in Australia but I think it should be okay if you select the 'fit' option in the printers setting. Might be just a little bit bigger but all the proportions will stay the same.</p>
<p>This was such a fun project! I had never made a pop up card before, and these instructions and templates made it very easy to do! My little sister is a huge Dr. Who fan, so I'm planning on sending this card to her as a little surprise. Thanks for the great tutorial!!! :)</p>
<p>No worries mate :) hope she enjoys it</p>
<p>Awesome! I scaled mine up a bit :) Thanks for the great instructable</p>
i love this very much!! What kind of thickness of A4 Paper do you use? i prefer in mm ;) Thanks in advance
Thank you so much for this ... big Who fan. I seem to be having problems with the pop-up_tardis_finishes_a4 file. One of the signs does not display correctly for me (the free public one). Any advise appreciated. <br> <br>Lots of Cheer - wotw
Thanks wkou! yeah I just checked out the pdf and....yeah it does seem that way on the pdf viewer. I remember the image I used for that sign is quite high resolution. I zoomed in and everything is there. I think it may just be a pdf viewer problem. It should be fine when printing.
Thank you for looking into this for me. Appreciated. Well off to build :) <br> <br>Lots of Cheer - wotw
this is so wonderful! :) what kind of weight would you suggest for the blue card? The one I had at home seems to be to thick, the printer won't take it.
Love it =)
This is absolutely amazing!! Thank you for such a wonderful instructable!! :-)
My pleasure
