  • White craft glue that is a “quick grab” “clear dry” type of glue.
  • X-acto blade tool and fresh blade
  • A true cutting mat
  • Small artist brush with which to paint on glue

Trick Box Assembly
1.  Cut out pieces to box.
2. Fold box top and bottom at natural points. Review the photo for guidance.
3. Cut out window hole with fresh X-acto blade tool
4. Paint glue to colored sides of the box top and box bottom tabs. Press against the blank box surface of the respective side.
5. Paint glue to blank sides of the sides lining panels. Fold down to inside of box and use tweezers on crease when making the bonds. This will ensure that the crease is as tight as possible and the top will then fit over the box bottom.
6. Use a pointy marker and trace size of the acetate window against the box top. Cut out acetate piece.
7. Glue the acetate in place on the interior side of the box top.
8. Fold down the four sides of the fake tray of tricks and place inside the box. The sides may need to be trimmed down, if you want more space between the tray and the box window.

1. Use the pattern and cut a bunch of pages using copy paper. Stack the pages and make sure there's a proper fit into the book cover. See the Book Tutorial to assemble the books.

ESP Cards
1. Fold ESP cards in half and glue.
