This little hollow book was made from a copy of Hans Christian Anderson's Book of Fairy Tales, printed in Denmark in 1960. It is a smaller size book, something that was perhaps made to be read by a child, or fit handily into a purse or large pocket. The cavity was hand cut with an exacto knife, and measures 4.5" x 2.75"x 1". The pages have been meticulously sealed together to create sturdy side walls and the bottom of the cavity is lined with beautiful vintage fabric of blue and white flowers. 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!
