March Craft of the Month – Secret Book Safe

Fri / March 1, 2019 Sat / March 30, 2019
All Day / The Workspace, Memorial Union, 2229 Lincoln Way, Ames

Friday, March 1 – Saturday, March 30 || Walk in during open hours: Monday – Friday 2-10pm, Saturday 10am-4pm

Hollow out a book for a secret place to stash your treasures in plain sight. Start by gluing the edges together, then use a box knife to cut out a rectangular compartment within the pages. Add decorative paper to your interior cutout to tidy up the edges, and keep it under a stack of real books overnight to compress the pages. Drop in during open hours but give yourself about 90 minutes. All ages are welcome if accompanied by an adult, however kids won’t be allowed to use box knives. $8
