today I have done a quick little project and turned a box in to a faux book. I will use to hide small valuables in
I started with this box which is just perfect, as it has a slide out drawer, but any strong (book size) box could be used
The book spine graphic is from The Graphics Fairy
I placed the graphic in the centre of the page so I had enough to fold around the front and back of the box. You can find the front and back covers of the original book on the same site but I used the spine only
I then stuck the paper around the box (any paper glue would do) and it now sits under a small pile of books on a dresser
If you are storing any silver jewellery it is a good idea to store it in a ziplock bag and place an anti-tarnish tab in with it. I get mine at a really reasonable price from Palmers Metals , the ziploc bag can then be stored in the faux book box.
I hope I remember where I have hidden this stuff and don't throw it out or give it to a charity shop!
