Wowza! This looks like it is straight out of a mystery movie where in the middle of the night the crook looks both ways and pulls the one secret book off the shelf and opens it up to find the crowned jewels! I didn't realize that people actually made these but it does seem they'd be a great hiding place in a library wall full of books. Only the intended would know which book was the right one! I thought it would be a darling idea for a ring bearer instead of a pillow especially if the bride/groom were word nerds like in our family! What a cool idea! Thanks!

This gift box looks so awesome. I've always wanted to make a secret storage book, so I'll have to find a cool old book at the thrift store and give it a try.

Oh I've been meaning to try this for a long time. I haven't come up with the right occasion and I need to find a book that I'd be willing to tear up, but I do love this idea a lot.
