Antique Telephone Box

Antique Telephone Tara

This Antique Telephone box was so fun to make with the stunning pink papers of Vintage Garden.  The large top box opens from the back for plenty of gift space or photo storage space.

Have a great day crafting with the beautiful papers of Pion Design!

    Hi Connie,
    I made the box with thick chipboard and then covered it with Vintage Garden papers. The box feet are a Tim Holtz Idea-Ology product. The top metal handle and holders came from Hobby Lobby (local craft store). I went to a local hardware store (Ace) and picked up the side crank handle and the side pulley piece. I also found the black phone cord and rubber pieces for the top handle at the hardware store. Hope this helps! Thanks for the kind comments!ReplyCancel

    This is absolutely breathtaking! I am amazed at your talent and this phone looks so real. Thank you so much for giving the instructions on how you put it together. I would have never thought of this or using that material. I now have to make one!ReplyCancel

    Hi Tara, this is just too cute! Can you tell me where you got the round phone number piece? Thanks so much!ReplyCancel

    • DT ~ Tara

      Hi Joyce, The center round frame is a 7 Gypsies frame. For the round numbers, I just took some jeweled brads and removed the jewels with a craft knife and then applied black round epoxy 3-D number stickers that I found at Hobby Lobby. Hope this helps!ReplyCancel

    Hi Tara! Oh how I LOVE this! You are so clever and so talented!!! I’m working on getting everything together to make this so could you please tell me what you used for the cut out decoration that goes around the box, also what size are the boxes? Thanks so very much! Just can’t wait to make this, thanks again!ReplyCancel

    • DT ~ Tara

      Hi Marie, the decoration around the box is a Tattered Lace “Antique Frame” 3 in 1 die. The top box is completely square with each side measuring 5″. The smaller bottom box measure 5 5/8″ by 5 5/8″ with a 1 1/2″ height. Thanks so much Marie – I hope this helps!ReplyCancel

    Hi Tara, thank you for your answers, I got the brads but I found a way to get the plastic out of the brad. Soak them in nail polish remover overnight and they just melt away, saves a trip to the emergency room, lol.ReplyCancel

  • Petra

    Hi there! I watch this site everyday to check on answers to make the phone with. Can you please tell us how many sheets of pion papers that we need, and what size are boxes, and where do you get the desings and what do you use for glue? Are the pearl string type or loose type? Also where do you buy the flowers? What size pearls? Please answer, been waiting a long time for answers, thank you very much!!!!ReplyCancel

    • DT ~ Tara

      Hi Petra, I used 2 sheets of Phlox (PD3602) and 1 sheet of the 6×6 Phlox (PD3702) as well as some border strips from one sheet of PD3610. The top box is a square with each side measuring 5″ by 5″. The smaller bottom box measures 5 5/8″ by 5 5/8″ with a 1 1/2″ height. I used a Tattered Lace “Antique Frame” die on the sides and the flowers were handmade using a Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die. The pearls are strips of 2mm flat back self-adhesive pearls that I get from a local craft store. I use Scotch quick dry glue on most of my projects. Take care!ReplyCancel

    Gorgeous and SO inspiring! Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

  • this would have to be the most gorgeous item I have seen created in a long time. Everything about it is just so creative & would be a stunning display item placed anywhere. I know you have mentioned twice now that you used tattered lace antique frame but could you please tell me what brand die this is as I can’t find it anywhere. Thanks very much and can’t wait to see your next creations. TFSReplyCancel

    • DT ~ Tara

      Hi Julie, Thank you so much for your nice comments! the actual brand of the die is “Tattered Lace” and is designed by Stephanie Weightman. I found it at a Hobbycraft store in the United Kingdom. You can check out the website (http://www.tatteredlace.co.uk/) to find worldwide distributors. Thanks again!ReplyCancel

  • Petra

    Thank you so very much Tara for the answers, but I have just one more question, what do you call the black rubber things that goes around the bottom of the phone handles so I will know what to look for? Thank you so much again!ReplyCancel

    • DT ~ Tara

      Hi Petra, I found those black rubber grommets at a local hardware store (Ace Hardware). They come in different sizes so I just found a size that would fit the handle. Hope this helps! :)ReplyCancel
