This one is for those Whovians out there planning to tie the knot in style. Make sure that cute kid you -hire- coax into being part of the wedding procession carries an appropriate set of rings that people can see instead of "Oh, that's just a pillow the kid needs to take a nap on when he gets down the end of the aisle."
These giant rings may be a replica of the real set of Doctor Who rings you may have. The bands are inscribed with TIME LORD and COMPANION. They are encircled with Gallifreyan text of your choosing. The companion's band is adorned with a giant jewel.
Made from cardboard, these rings are a timeless extension of gangsta geek cardboard bling rings.
Submitted for your approval, presented on a TARDIS pillow, really a folded up TARDIS IKEA shopping bag.
You need some basics.
Cardboard, any kind, corrugated or thin cardboard.
Paint, I used silver metallic acrylic for easy cleanup and a bottle of 3D gelled fabric paint with applicator tip.
and to use as a form for the ring, a giant can. I guess if you have a piece of large diameter drainpipe or ductwork, those can be used, anything cylindrical. Which gets me to this, I think that was supposed to be a 5 lb can of coffee that is supposed to hold 5 lbs of coffee. Why does it only have a little over 2 lbs of coffee in it? Did the rest of the coffee just dematerialize? Does my money just dematerialize? wait, it does...
You need a big rock. Don't skimp on the rock. I had this crystal diamond which is non-GIA certified and who knows how many carats in size which works for demo purposes. Real tip for y'all: Don't max out all your credit cards just to get a showy piece of jewelry. Starting off a new life together in debt is never good.
Scissor, utility knife or a paper cutter.
CAUTION: Paper cuts hurt, the guillotine blade on the paper cutter or the razor wheel on rotary cutters are very very sharp. Have fun but be safe crafting.
