How To Make a Secret Hollow Book:

How To Make a Secret Hollow Book:
The first step into making the hollow book is to select a book. Make sure this is a book your own, and not one belonging to the library, or your family. I suggest rummaging through books at yard/garage sales. Make sure it is a hardback; otherwise you will cut all the way through the other side when you are cutting out the insides.You'll also need: Elmer's white gluea container to hold glue solution (I've chosen a film canister)X-acto knife, and/or box cutter. Both if you have thembrush to apply glue solutionpencil/penruler, or other rigid straight edgeSelect a page that you want to be the first one cut out, and save that page to be cut out at the end. Mix a solution of white glue and water. Holding the remaining pages together, brush the edges with the glue solution - enough to soak in pretty well, but not too drippy. Allow this to dry, but use a spacer so the first couple pages, and the front cover don't get stuck. When dry, open the book to the first glued page. Happy hiding.
