Quick and Easy Hiding Place

Introduction: Quick and Easy Hiding Place

This is a easy hiding place made in about 5 minutes

Step 1: Gather Materials

For this project you will need:
Jewelry Box/ altoids can(I used a ring box)
Refrigirator Magnet
Tape/Glue(Tape is much easier and less messy)
Something to hide

Step 2: Prep Ring Box

For this step you want to rip off the material to reveal a metal surface

To do so just slice a hole anywhere on it and just start tearing

Step 3: Prep the Magnet

Take the magnet and put tape around the edges of it trying no to get very much tape on it as possible.

Gluing would be more permanent but it was to messy to bother with.

Step 4: Finding a Hiding Spot

For this step you need to find a hiding spot preferably a dark spot under something i put it under my desk where nobody could see it

Step 5: Prepare Your Stash

For this step all you need to do is get something to hide and put it in the box

Step 6: Your Done

HOORAY your done now all you have to do is slap it up there and tada you have yourself a hiding spot

    yeah cutting books out is awesome. especially if you have a full shelf of books....people would never find the right one.

    Cool idea. I found a Cheapo seattle sonics magnet and a Ring box but the ring box was my Mom's wedding ring box so i couldn't come at it with a knife. So I found out that if it has the velvety cover on it the magnet USUALLY will be able to just go through without harassing the box... :D
