Okay, so on my props list I saw that I had to make a magic book for one of the sketches, I was considering just buying an old worn book and modding it, like in that FANTASTIC Harry Potter book mod... But then I realized I had ALREADY made a book some years ago... and it must be in my black hole of a bedroom... Luckily I hadn't chucked it out... and what luck it was in perfectly usable condition, it just needed a lick of paint!
This prop is great for LARP or for school plays
Since I constructed this book maybe about 4 years ago now, I was a little... stuck, as I knew it would make a GREAT Instructable.. But I had no pictures of how I put it together.... so if you can suffer my diagrams done in paint, I think we should get along great!
Let me know if you have any problems
NB: I think the original idea for the book came from watching Artattack, or SmArt or something when i was a kid So, thanks to Tony Heart or Neil Buchannan whichever gave me the idea when i was like 9 ;)
Step 1: Ingredients!
So, as I cast my mind back i shall attempt to give you a list of what you will need
* Cardboard- anything froma cerial box to a cardboard crate will work!
* Knife/ Scissors
* Glue- Pva all the way for this one! You'll need loads of it later when you papier mache it
* Unused (hehe) Toilet roll
* Time: This one hopefully shouldn't take you over 4 years, but it is abit f a time consuming one!
