I have seen many "make your own TARDIS" tutorials but all of them took to long (I have like no patience) so I made my own.

This is the perfect "rainy day" project, I made the whole thing and I didn't have to leave my house to buy supplies

•Make four rectangles out of cardboard that are 24.8 cm by 13.6 cm

•make two squares out of cardboard that are 13.6cm by 13.6cm

•cut them out with and x-acto knife
Note- they don't have to be perfect,we are going to paper mâché over them

•tape one of the squares to a rectangle, it helps if you get someone to hold it for you while you tape

•keep taping the pieces together until you get a rectangular prism

•make the pulpy mixture- 1/2 cup of flour, 1cup of water, and one spoon of salt

• make strips of newspaper

•dip the strips in the mixture, when you take them out push the access mix off of the strip -you will get messy

• lay them on your tardis

• repeat until your tardis is completely covered

•let it dry over night...or something....maybe just a few hours

Step 4: Painting

( I didn't take pictures off this so bear with me)
•first put one or two coats of white paint (this is optional but I feel like it will make your tardis last longer)

•next a coat of blue paint

• pencil in the squares, windows, and doors. When you like how they look, paint them in.( I put the template up there for the front and the side)

• paint the spool blue and yellow (or white) and glue it on top
