Introduction: The Book of Secrets !
- Are you tired of your already finished books sitting around never to be touched again, occupying space ?
Well, you are in luck ! How about turning those old books of yours in to little secret stash boxes ?
In this project I will try to do my best to give you a very short but a very understandable guide to make this happen !
What are you waiting for let’s go !!!
1- An old book or a book that you no longer need. (Thicker the better)
2- A glue. (I recommend PVA glue since it is faster and more secure but since I didn’t have it while I was making this, I used a glue stick instead)
3- A cutter
4- A marker
5- An oily
Step 1: Choose Your Book !
Pick one !
Choose a book that you no longer care for ! Be sure to choose one that is reasonably THICC depending to your taste but a book that has somewhere around 300-500 pages gives better results !
I went with this 300 pages long book that I have already read...
Step 2: Glue Time ! Sticky Fingers Alert !
Get your glues ready !
Hold the book as a whole just like in the picture and glue the edges and sides of the book including back cover but excluding front cover ! So that you can open and close it like a box !
After that put a oily paper between the front cover and the first page than put something heavy on top of the book and wait a couple of hours (depends on your glue preference) to let it STICC !
Step 3: Planing Time !
After the glue has done it’s job and made sure the book feels solid and pages won’t move, it’s time to plan the size of your stash spot !
You can chose how thick the walls will be depending on your preferences but I went with my rulers wideness...
1 - Just rest your ruler to the side of page just like in the picture and use your marker to draw the line !
2- Repeat this process for all 4 walls !
Step 4: Cutting Time ! (Watch Your Fingers You !)
So after you have completed drawing all the lines, it’s time to cut them following those !
1- Simply follow your lines and cut them (Cut the formed rectangle) !
2- Repeat for all sides !
Step 5: Ah, It’s All Coming Together !
Now that you have something like this in the picture, we are in the endgame now !
Don’t worry if it all looks a bit messy, after you remove the cut pages you can just trim the sides until you are satisfied !
Step 6: Ta-dahh !
You have successfully completed this project !
Step 7: Enjoy !
Know that it is finished, but it to a test !
Use it as you like and Enjoy !!!
Thank you for your time ! (Hope you are satisfied !)
