So, I have been SUPERSUPERSUPER Obsessed with the Musical Soundtrack to WICKED:The Life And Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, my favorite song being "No Good Deed", and I have also wanted to make a place to organize my receipts, so I KNEW I had to combine the both!!!
BTW: Where is the Song-

I decided to make one of those "Hidden Book Hole" things (Get it? No Good Deed's...Spending Money...Receipts... haa haa?)
Here are my poor receipts before...

I wrote "The magic of Oz" on the front in silver, which I covered in blue fabric

The inside of the book, with reciepts (I record and throw away my receipts weekly, so it did not need to be big)
I also made a bad to put the book inside. One side has the Witch, copied from the front of the book/soundtrack, and the other side has my favorite line "...Let it be agreed I am WICKED through and Through...")

And finally, the inside of the bage, I lined with pink fabric (Because "Pink goes good with green" :  )    )

All In All, I like the idea, but I really want to redo the book, the hole is not a neat and even as I want it to be.

Clever idea! I just have a plain old drawer to file reciepts in. I think your interpretation is awesome!

Before I even clicked on this link I was totally singing popular in my head no lies! I think this is great and I've always wanted to make a book with a hidden gun in it! Great Job!
