How to Make a Book Safe
How Do I Make a Diversion Book Safe?
- Hardcover Book (make sure the book is thick and wide enough to store the objects you plan to hide) – I picked up this dictionary for just a few dollars at the Goodwill!
- Card Stock Paper (for your cutting template)
- Sharp Razor Blade for your Box Knife
Instructions for How to Make a Secret Money Safe:
- Open your book and flip past the first 20 pages. You’ll want to leave at least 20 pages intact at the beginning of the book to cover your secret compartment.
- Place a piece of card stock paper on the right hand page where you will begin cutting. On the card stock paper, draw the rectangular outline of the compartment with a pencil and ruler. Leave a border of at least 1 inch on all sides to prevent tears.
- Cut out the rectangle tracing from the card stock paper. (see photo above)
- Using your razor blade, carefully begin cutting 5-10 pages at a time inside the lines of your card stock paper template. Press hard with the blade and keep your template in place.
- Remove the cut papers from the center of the book and discard.
- Continue cutting out the center of the book until you have a rectangle compartment of your desired depth. Leave the last 20 pages of the book intact as well.
- You’re done! You can now stash your valuables out of sight where no one would even think to look!
