|Start with a nice thick hardcover book. Ensure it's not a classic! ;)|
|Create a mixture of white school glue and water. The ratio I used was about 60/40, with the larger portion being the glue. You won't use too much, so don't mix a lot.|
|Hollow out the book. This is the tutorial I used:|
|I decided to add a picture frame to the front to make the gift even more useful.|
|And this is the completed project. The globe was cut from the Cricut cartridge Going Places and the bookplate from Fabulous Finds.|
|The book cover itself was my color/them inspiration. I thought it already had a nice masculine base, so I chose not to cover it up.|
|I also chose to just wrap the book in matching ribbon rather then cover the spine with paper.|
|The sentiment "World's Best Teacher!" was perfect for my theme!|
|And here it is opened. You could choose to fill it up with things like paper clips, erasers, checking pens, etc. Or, even add a gift card to the inside.|
