Vintage Phone Booth aka telephone box (Prototype) - WPC and SVG

Finally, I created my pazzles .wpc file for a vintage phone booth aka telephone box.  Here’s my first prototype for the phone booth aka telephone box:




I can see many uses for this vintage phone booth.  My first thought was to put a tea light inside and sit it on a table as a center piece (or use as a night light in a kid’s room).  Another thought was to store some colorful washcloths inside as a decorative piece in my bathroom.  I even thought of coating the inside with some mod podge and putting our toothbrush holder inside to keep them covered.  The mod podge would be good for water spills.

I’ve made more changes to this file because after cutting it out I found that some things were a hassle to deal with (the design on the base is gone).  Making double cuts and gluing them together will make the pay phone stronger if you want slightly heavier objects inside of it.

At the time, I didn't have red paint so I tried to make white paint look distressed/vintage.  Most of the distress of the paint were happy accidents.  I used gold pigment ink to add more of an old world look.

Visit my etsy shop to download the svg file (wpc file can be purchased upon request).

Here are the 5 instructional videos showing how to assemble the vintage phone booth:







Enjoy!  :-)

  1. Gina, your police box is great. Good work. Isn't it fun to start with nothing but an idea and work your way through the prototypes to completed piece? Yes! So rewarding.
