Okay, I have been toying around with a couple of books I've hollowed out. I thought they were pretty good until I saw some for sale on etsy. They all had perfect edges around the hollowed out spot and looked a lot fancier than mine. Does anyone have any tips on how to make these a bit better? I've just been using an xacto knife to cut the pages out. Please help Smiley I'm hoping to make some as gifts if I can make them look nicer!

I've never tried this, but I would suggest using a very sharp blade (and changing it often!) and maybe trying to lightly sand down the pages after cutting them.
