I decided to try something new! This is the cover of a box that looks like a book; aka a book safe, hidden compartment or a book box.
It looks like a leather bound book with gilded pages but lift the cover and you see it is actually hollow inside.
I've included jasper, cats eye cabochons, brass and persimmon colored glass gems.
I really love the way this turned out! It is a pretty deep box and I'll post another shot so that you can see how well disguised it is.

I think they are cool....but that is probably one of the first places a thief would look I imagine...that and the freezer LOL so I don't think I would ever use one to hide valuables in. It's just purty :D
