Re: [BKARTS] Book boxes



Coat the edges of the text block with PVA glue or gel medium and bulldog
clip together until dry.  Do not glue to the back just yet.  You need to
slip a cutting mat between the text block and the back cover just to be
safe.  You don't want to accidentally slice the cover.  Use a new blade in
an exacto knife and cut carefully a few pages at a time until you have them
all out.  Use a metal edge to start your excavation.  After the pages have
all been cut and the edges neatened up glue the block to the back of the
book.  At this point you can paint, collage tissue paper, whatever.  Coat
the inside of the hole also with glue and or paint.

> The pages of the book are all glued together and to the back cover, except
for the first 2 or 3 pages and then the center of all the glued pages are
cut out to make a shallow  box with the front cover acting as the cover of
the box.
