Ask and you shall receive! Today I am sharing another design inspired by our neighbors across the pond. So, gather your crafting supplies, because this British phone booth is “calling” your name.

Last month, I shared a fun, double-decker bus design. While wiring that post, I mentioned that it might be cute to have a little red phone booth to go with it, and many of you agreed! So, here we are.
- Dura-Lar Film
- Hot Glue
- Precision Craft Glue or a Glue Stick
- Decorative Gems (optional)
- Bone Folder (optional)
- A Cutting Machine or X-ACTO knife
- My Free Template
How to Make It
1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the British phone booth pieces.
Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video. This design also included some drawn elements. But, if you don’t have a Cricut pen, you can just delete the letters included and write them by hand.
2. First, clean your clear film pieces and glue them to the inside. Glue the window grid/frame pieces to the outside, along with any gem embellishments.
Next, glue the “telephone” sign pieces to the inside so they show through the top portion.
3. Take the black piece and fold along the score lines, Attach the little tabs to the inside and fold the remaining tabs inward (they will be used to adhere the whole thing to the back wall of the phone booth later). Attach the little phone piece, and glue a little section of string to the bottom of the receiver and along the side of the phone box. Draw on some little buttons for extra cuteness.
Attach phone box to the back wall.
Curl the roof of the phone both and attach the little tabs inside, one or two at a time. Attach the base to the back and side wall using the tabs provided. Then, the front door is left to be either open or shut using the tab/slit provided.
It’s the little touches with this project. I just think that having a door that opens and closes, along with that cute little phone box inside, just really makes this an adorable piece.
As far as my 3D projects go, this one is definitely on the simpler side, but no less cute! And it pairs perfectly with my double-decker bus, for sure.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fun freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting my British phone booth together. And don’t forget to share your cute little finished project with me on Instagram!
