|The name is perfect, and so was the price. |
We got it at Goodwill for $1.50!
|All the tools you need to hollow out a book.|
|We decided to keep the first chapter plus one extra page.|
|A concoction of water + Elmer's glue to adhere the pages together.|
|Measuring out how big we wanted the box.|
We kept the page header + page numbers.
|Ready to cut!|
|Use a box cutter/utility knife to cut the pages.|
One with a new blade works particularly well.
|Use the glue concoction on the inside to make everything stay.|
|That extra page in addition to the first chapter we kept was glued to the top of the box.|
We did that so you wouldn't see where we drew the lines to measure it out.
|And no one can tell the difference :)|
Both of us always wanted to do this, but when I thought that The Chamber of Secrets would be the coolest book to do, it was all the incentive we needed. It was a lot of fun and pretty easy to do. I suggest getting a book from Goodwill, because like I said before, you can't go wrong with a $1.50 project! We made this to hold the money we are saving for our little trip this summer.
