Introduction: TARDIS Card - Bigger on the Inside

Hi, this is how I did a TARDIS Card.
If you want to see how it work, please see the video.

To make this project you will need:
  • 1 piece of paper: 21cm x 28 cm
  • 2 pieces of paperL 21 cm x 6,9 cm
  • scissors
  • a ruler
  • pencil
  • crayon
  • black pen

Step 1: TARDIS Card - Bigger on the Inside

Take the first piece of paper (28 x 21 cm) and fold it down the middle.

Unfold and fold again with the sides folding in towards the center.

Unfold again. Your paper will have four 7cm divisions.

Step 2: TARDIS Card - Bigger on the Inside

Fold the paper again in the center.

With a pencil, make 3  marks in the middle ( 5.25 cm - 10.5 cm - 10.75cm).

Refer to picture three and cut on the marks shown. 

Open the paper and the paper will be cut, like in the picture 5

Step 3: TARDIS Card - Bigger on the Inside

Take the 2 strips (21cm x 6.9 cm) that were cut. 

Insert the strips "into" the first piece of paper, weaving in and out of the cuts.

Step 4: TARDIS Card - Bigger on the Inside

Decorate or paint your card and it is done!  Now, write a beautiful message and send the TARDIS to someone special :)

I just finished making this for a friend's birthday party tonight. Very ingenious design! It still messes with my mind, even after several prototypes and countless rounds of opening out the center sections. I really had fun putting together a story to take advantage of all the rooms, and then splicing the imagery together to print out correctly. Thanks very much for the design! I think my friend is really going to dig it.

I thought this was a fantastic instructable, but I have no artistic skills, so I created a PDF template that worked really well for me. I've attached it for others to use.

It works exactly like the original instructable. Simply cut out the shapes on the PDF and assemble them in the same way as the instructions. I designed it so that when you first open the card it's blue inside, and when you open the hidden part it's yellow. Hope you enjoy it!

I forgot to mention: when you print this template, you must print it double-sided. Page two must be on the reverse of page one, and page four must be on the reverse of page three.
