Here’s what you’ll need to complete this project:

A Hardback Book – One you don’t mind not being able to read again!

White Glue – Just ordinary glue.

Metal or Wooden Ruler with Edge and Pencil – Really helpful.

Utility Knife – A sturdy box cutter type knife.

Craft Knife – A more precise knife, such as an Exacto Knife™ helps you make a neat vault.

Plastic Bag, Wax Paper, Card Stock, Rubber Band, Spring Clamp, and Tape – These are helpful and can be picked up cheaply at the dollar store.

Brush – A small brush to apply glue to the pages is helpful. You can find these
at the dollar store.

Balsa Wood, Velvet, and Magnet Closures are OPTIONAL – These are optional finishing
touches you can use to make your vault even better.
