Hollowed out so you can hide your treasures!
I've seen a lot of these hollowed out books on this site. I didnt think it looked very hard to do, but I was wrong, lol. I isnt "hard" but it takes a very very long time to make. You have to cut the center out of every page, then glue every page together and let it dry for a day!

The hardest part was painting the cover to look like the Hogwarts Textbook. I painted the whole thing red then painted on the gold lettering and scratches in the book. Then I covered it in a few layers of glaze.

The pages looked kinda weird because of the glue, so I painted them a tan/parchment color. And I added a piece of felt to the inside of the book, so all the things inside are safe :)

I made this for the Harry Potter swap- I hope my partner appreciates all the time I took to make this special book ^_^
Now I want to make another for myself LOL

What a great way to package all your swap items!!
I love doing altered books and "secret" books.
I found a bunch of old books in the paper recycling bins at work but on closer inspection decided not to rescue them. I wasn't sure how some people would react when they realized I'd cut up and painted bibles and prayer books Happy
my arguement would have been at least they were getting used for something beautiful rather than just dumped but still...
