Summer Secret Phone Book


When you're out at the beach or the lake this summer, here's a cool diy craft to keep your keys, wallet and phone safe!
Please, for the love, do not destroy good books. Find a book that's literally falling apart to do this. Open the book about 20 pages and trace your phone or something bigger.
Using an exacto blade and a straight edge, trip out the pages as deep as you'd like.
Using standard glue, brush it on the inside and outside edges of the book pages. Let this dry 24 hours at least. Apply a second coat for extra durability.
Pretty cool right?! I'm so doing this for this summer! Have you seen my other summertime ideas? Check them out here!
just make sure you don't use some antique 1st edition book, when doing this lol
Sounds like you're just trying to hate. This is a fantastic idea! Thank you for sharing.
@kimjongdaily I thought this was a cute way to keep an old book around. Most would just toss it to the trash. It's an example of upcycling, which is very popular among diyers. What kinds of projects do you prefer that aren't so dumb? I will post those for your enjoyment
@lvplus2 orrrr im just giving my opinion
I see what you mean @kimjongdaily Books that are tattered or falling apart, which is what I recommend for this project, would typically get discarded if they were donated. Believe it or not, not everything donated makes it to the sales floor. Books in particular. If they are falling apart, they will not be put out to be sold. The method of upcycling saves the book from the trash heap.
