Hi guys i am going show you how to hollow out a book (NOTE: steps 2-3 are only necessary if you cant find a book that is hard coved.)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Will Need
What you will need
1. A book (I used an old phone book.)
2. Some thin cardboard (You will only need this if your book if not hard cover)
3. Clear drying paper glue
4. Utility knife
Step 2: Cuting Out Pages
Grab about 10 pages it the start the the end of the book and cut them out.
Step 3: Gluing in the Cardboard
Put some glue on the cardboard and stick it to the inside of the two covers of the book. This makes it hard covered.
Step 4: Mark Out the Hole
Use a DVD case to mark out a hole.
Step 5: Start Cutting
Start cutting the pages on the lines you make with the pen and pull the cut pieces (make sure you go all the way to edges.)
Step 6: Time to Glue
To start put a plastic bag over the cover so that the glue doesn’t stick it shut .
Make a squiggly line of glue on all three sides and rub it in with a piece of cardboard.
Step 8: Wait :(
Put something heavy on top of it and wait for 12 hours (This gets boring so you should probably do it over night.)
