how to make a se­cret hol­low book

Scout - - GUY STYLE -

What you’ll need:

• Hard­cover book

• Plas­tic wrap

• Glue

• Wa­ter

• Paint­brush

• Ruler

• Pen­cil

• Box Cut­ter

step 1

Con­sider where you are go­ing to start cut­ting the pages. Leave out the first quar­ter of the book free for al­lowance. Wrap both cov­ers with plas­tic wrap or a plas­tic bag, in­clud­ing the first quar­ter of the book, to keep it from get­ting glued.

step 2

Close the book and ap­ply an am­ple amount of glue mixed with wa­ter around the edges. Coat the edges thor­oughly. Put some­thing heavy on top of the book and let it dry for at least 12 hours.

step 3

When it’s dry, it’s time to start cut­ting. Mea­sure the size and the shape you want, and make sure to leave a mar­gin—at least half an inch. Care­fully start carv­ing around the edge with your box cut­ter. Leave sev­eral pages at the back of the book un­cut, for struc­tural sup­port.
