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.

Supplies

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 videoThis 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.

    Aww, this made me smile. These telephone boxes were the original phone boxes here in the UK. Traditionally, the telephone was a dial…
    So lovely, thank you
