DIY 3 Stacked Book Challenge....

    The challenge this month from Decorate More With Tip was to create a "3 stack book decor".  

    I like to create useful items, so I created a hidden storage box:

    Can you find it?

I took a cardboard magazine storage box from Ikea and 3 books...

I removed the spine and cover of the books, but then found out they were too wide for the magazine box, so I found a thinner book!

I cut the magazine box shorter than the book spines...

...and then glued the spines onto the box, keeping one side of the two books that would cover the side of the box:

It was as easy as that!

The box is all set to be placed a book shelf to hide items such as jewelry, money, passport, important papers, etc.

If you were a burglar, would you think to look here?

  1. What a great hidden treasure box. You are so clever, no one would know to check there. I am loving this idea Patti. Love it! Have a wonderful 4th of July holiday!

  2. Wonderful project. I think burglars would not think to look there. Now, your secret is out. I hope they are not reading your very creative Patti.

  3. Patti, what an awesome idea. Hiding in plain sight. And it looks pretty too.

  4. Such a creative idea and fun project. And, it looks fabulous on the shelf! Happy Fourth.......

  5. Wow, I had no idea. When I first saw your image I was trying to figure out what you did because I couldn't decide what 3 books you were working with. This is perfect!
