I'm going to share with you my personal experience with Christmas presents. just recently I watched this video on creating a book safe, and I thought, 'OMG THIS IS AN AMAZING GIFT' so I wanted to make it. today at my grandparents house. my zeda (grandfather) found me a HUGE, GIGANTIC BOOK about computers. so I drew a relatively big rectangle inside of the book. then me and my zeda went to the garage and he took out this huge sawing tool and opened the book and went nicely on the pencil line I drew. eventually we got to the end, some of the pages were torn, there was random strips sticking out, it didn't look how I planned it to look. I think my zeda could sense that I wasn't sure about how it looked. so, we found a smaller book and made a plan to draw a smaller rectangle when we do make it. it was a learning process but that is what makes things perfect. here are a couple pics of the book I'm changing the project to.
