Alice in Wonderland Book Nook

Learn how to assemble this little paper portal to Wonderland.

Materials

Instructions

  • Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the pieces of this Alice in Wonderland book nook.
    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.

Assembling the Decorative Layers

  • Layer the pieces of decorative sections together: the trees, the silhouette frames, the castle, the hedge maze, and Alice herself.

Assembling the Interior

  • Attach the interior panels to one of the dark purple walls using the tabs/slits provided. From back to front attach: the blue pathway, the hedge maze, the green heart entryway, the grey playing card panel, and the white playing card panel. Attach two of the heart trees to the interior of the purple wall, in between the layers.
    Note: If you are having trouble positioning the walls and figuring out which slits go where, the rear panels are closer together and the panels near the front are more spread out.
    Then, attach the opposite wall, using the tabs on the other side of the panels.
    Take the blue rectangle and attach it to the bottom of the panels using the tabs/slits provided.

Assembling the Exterior

  • Layer the decorative panels on top of the light purple box pieces.
    Next, attach the clipboard panels to the interior of the light purple box pieces.
    Attach the castle panel to the inside of the back wall and Alice’s panel to the inside of the front wall.
  • Fold the tabs on the front, back, and bottom panels along the score lines.
    Next, take the interior section previously completed and attach the bottom panel to the base.
    Then, attach the front and back walls to the interior section.
    Finish by attaching the side walls as well as the framed silhouettes. Add any other decorative elements that you’d like, and your book nook is complete!

Notes

When assembled, this project is about 10" tall, 4.25" wide, and 6.25" deep.

Since this is intended to sit in between heavy books, I decided to include chipboard in the structure of this project. The chipboard really does make this whole thing quite sturdy, and I wouldn’t have any worries about it being a part of a bookshelf display. That being said, if you don’t intend to sandwich this project on a bookshelf or simply don’t want to bother with the chipboard, it’s not a necessity.

I’ve seen a lot of book nooks in the past, but this is my first time actually creating one myself. I went back and forth numerous times on what the “theme” of the project should be. Once I landed on the Alice in Wonderland idea, though, I didn’t go back! There are just too many great scenes to choose from in that story, and I had such a great time designing this project.

    I can’t wait to make this! However, I have an Explore Air 2 so it doesn’t cut chipboard. I’m thinking of using foam board instead to maintain the sturdiness. Are the black pieces in the design what you cut in chipboard? Thank you!

      Hi Casi! I actually have cut chip board on an Explore Air 2 before! You just need a deep cut blade in order to do so. That being said, you are welcome to try using foam board instead. With all of the layers in this design, it does end up being fairly sturdy. And yes, the dark brown/black pieces in the design are what I used for the chipboard. ☺️
