To begin I went to my local crafts store and purchased some supplies. I picked up two sheets of leather and some scrapbooking dividers. I needed these because I wanted my psychic paper to have a pocket where I could write things and slide them into place of the normally blank paper. I also used glue, tape, a box cutter, scissors, and a microwave pizza box for this build. Sadly I didn't think to photograph my process, so instead I'll just explain what I did below.
The first step was to measure out the leather and cut it to size. My psychic paper is around 5 inches by 7.5 inches, which I found looked to be the correct size. After cutting two pieces of leather that size, I also cut some cardboard from the pizza box to give the build strength. I put the cardboard between the two pieces and glued all of them together. The next step was to fold the leather wallet in half and place it between a huge stack of books, so that it would fold open. After the glue dried and the wallet had a crease in it, I took some of my remaining leather to cut a small triangle out to use as a pocket. I then glued two of the three edges to the wallet and let it dry. The final step was to take the scrapbooking paper and dividers and create a small plastic sleeve the same size as my paper. I then taped the edges of the sleeve to the back of the paper and glued the paper to the wallet. Once it dried I was done! Now the prop isn't perfect. I plan on buying some black thread and a leather needle and sewing the border of the wallet to both give it strength and add to the look, but thats a task for another day. The last thing I added to wallet was a small key that I got for free at my local hardware store. It was a mis-cut key, so they just gave it to me. I chose it because it was relatively similar to the Tardis key used in the show.
Below are some pictures of the actual Psychic paper used by the Doctor.
And finally here is my prop!
For one of my first prop builds, I'm rather proud of it! I know it's not perfect or canon by any means, but I think I did a pretty good job considering I figured this out without any tutorials or templates.
As always I hope you enjoyed!
