This is a cool hollowed out stack of papers. It looks official, yet its really just a hollow storage container made from paper. It closes magnetically for durability. It is a great way to hide your important valuables in plain sight!!! Or quckily tuck away your iPod/iPhone before someone enters the room!!  You can even put a microphone in there and secretly record conversations with friends. This is a one of a kind official looking piece of creativity!

Step 1: Supplies

For this phony stack of papers you will need:

Mod Podge (Paper - Matte)
A paintbrush
A stack of paper (about an inch tall)
An X-ACTO knife
A drill or drill press
8 round rare earth magnets (3/8in. diameter)
A drill bit with the same diameter as the magnets (3/8in. diameter)
A ruler
A piece of wood (about 4in. x 4in. x0.5in.)

A pencil
Wax paper
An adhesive roller
Colored sticky notes
Awesome. I didn't use magnets at all and the wait of several papers kept it down. I also glued to sides so it kept the whole pile together.
if only i had a job (sigh):(
This is well done . Instead of magnets opposite each other you could use small circles cut from a tin can lid on one side, opposite the magnets.
Very clever. Now I'll finally have a place to store my Post-it note pad.
This is my favourite comment because I totally understand what you mean. xD
That's really cool now I have a secret hiding place for my phone!:)
I always have a stack of paperwork on my desk... I like this... <br>You could take the fake paperwork one step further by taking another stack of 'work' and stapling them together before glueing the last couple pages to the top... so you can 'sort through them' as the boss walks in...
So cool!
Thank you!
