Hey, in this tutorial I will be showing you how to make this amazing box made out of an old hard-cover book! You really do not require a lot of skill to make this but you will need some time, so set aside an hour or two.

Step 1: Materials

For this craft you will need

  • Old Hard-Cover Book
  • Mod Podge or Paintable Glue
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Pencil
  • Paintbrush

Step 2: Percision

Go about 10-15 pages into your book and make an outline of most of the page (as shown above). Now take your X-Acto knife and cut deeply on those lines.

Step 3: Goodbye Pages

Now take out your cut pages to reveal a small space in the book (thickness wise). Now make another cut almost identical to the first and repeat these steps until you only have about 45-60 pages left in the book.

Step 4: SMUSH IT!!!

Take you liquid glue and paint it onto the compressed pages of your hidden space on the inside and outside. Now sit on it to insure that the glue dries and the pages stay nice and flat.

Step 5: !VIOLA!

Woah, now you have an amazing book-box that you can hide things in! BTW you may be able to bring it into a reeaalllllyyyyy boring class in school and stick something entertaining in there. Hope you enjoyed this instructable, if so please favorite, comment, and also share!
