This listing is for a one of a kind hollow book jewelry box. It is made from a discarded copy of It All Started With Columbus, a satirical history of the United States written by Richard Armour, published in 1953. The cavity was hand cut with an exacto knife, and measures approximately 6" x 4" x .5". The pages have been meticulously sealed together to create sturdy side walls. The bottom of the cavity is lined with beautiful piece of vintage cotton fabric featuring a vibrant plaid in red white and blue. This hollow book would make a lovely and very personal gift for any book lover in your life.

Every hollow book jewelry box is a hand-cut one of a kind. I use recycled or discarded components whenever possible, which keeps the carbon footprint on this jewelry box very low. And I reuse the pages that I remove in my nature themed collages for kids and adults, see sample listing here:


This way you can enjoy owning it it, and I can enjoy making it, completely guilt free!
