  • Hollow Book Box
    Here's a really easy homemade gift to make. All you need is a really thick book, a sharp X-acto knife or box cutter, glue, brush, pen, and ruler. First, get yourself a really thick, hardbound, old book. Use the brush to glue all the pages of the book (excluding the front cover) together from the side to the back cover. Once all the pages have been glued, place a heavy weight on the book and let it remain there for an entire day. The next day, open the book and measure how wide you want the hollow to be. Use the pen and ruler to measure it. Then, use the box cutter to cut the pages along the outline. What you'll be left with is a book with a gaping hole in the middle. Paint the entire book now and paste a nice picture on the front cover.
