I really enjoyed making this Hidden Compartment Book Box. I used a tutorial from Lori Whitlock (link to that tutorial is in the YouTube video description box). 

First off, let me say that to get the full details of this box, you will find them in the tutorial. 
1. Cut out all the SVG files for the box
2. Adhere all pieces together, making sure you score all score lines tightly (TIP: Use liquid glue, as it gives you allowance to move the pieces if necessary).
3. Add the mounting papers onto the individual pieces (book cover, binding, etc.) For the side edges of the box where it's the "pages", I used corrugated paper to give it more of a pages look.
4. After assembling the box and adding the decorative papers, decorate! I had a lot of fun decorating. My favorite part!

There you have it! I hope that you will join us for this month's fun challenge! 
Have a great day!
