Heart Book Box

This warmly weathered book opens to reveal a hand-cut heart that can hold a bookworm's treasured baubles.

i am a fan of library book sales, thrift shops, & estate sales...there in no shortage of lovely old books out there for use in this product. a book about a murdered teenage girl and the devastation of the events surrounding it is completely inappropriate.

Good initiative, Bad judgement.

This is a great idea for a romantic gift. It was made very well and I think it will be very durable. The only con and a pretty big one I think; is you should be a bit more selective of the books you choose to reconstruct. The book I got was "N is for Noose" which is a pretty morbid and unromantic title for a gift with a heart shape cut in the middle of it. I had to do some modifications so that my girlfriend couldnt read the binding or the first few pages.

Should come with a warning

This was a Valentine's Day gift my boyfriend got me. My boyfriend wrapped the box it came in without looking inside. So on Valentine's Day I opened the package to find a book that was titled "The Ultimate Weight Solution." I looked at him and said "Are you kidding me?!". I felt so Insulted that my boyfriend would give me such a thing. I was so upset at the title of the book that I didn't even care what was on the inside. Might want to reconsider buying because you never know what book you are going to get.

This was disappointingly executed. Rather than just looking like a book from the outside, it looks like a book only from the spine. From the other sides it looks like a glue-y mess and very obviously like an adulterated book rather than an inconspicuous one.

The Perfect Wedding Gifts

5

When the groom to be asked our granddaughter to marry him, he put the engagement ring in a book he had made a cut out in just like the book we ordered. They are both book lovers and their wedding invitations used a book design and response cards are a library card. We will put a gift card inside the book and wrap it in the library card tote. The PERFECT wedding gift for them!

This is a unique and out-of the box, special and unexpected gift to give. Open the cover and get a surprise of a wonderful kind. I have purchased this box before and was 100% thrilled. This time around, the outline of the cutout heart - ie. the cutting line - remained on the first page. I returned this box to exchange for one in which the cut out lines are not inked onto the first page.

I asked for wedding appropriate. Not. But found all pages glued poorly together. Should have put this in description. Would not have purchased. Disappointed. Will not use.

Not good

1

No attention to detail. This is a heart cut out, meant for a loved one. The book was a 1986 encyclopedia and the book opened to a picture of terrorist, not exactly the romantic start to the presentation. The glue job was poor. I wish I had never bought.

Two out of three ain't bad

I bought 3 of these books for my Christmas for my college age nieces. Two of the books were perfect, similarly sized (approximately 10" x 6") but the 3rd was significantly smaller and the heart space was too shallow to hold anything other than a small piece of paper. I returned it, as there was not time to exchange before Christmas, and was shocked to have to pay $10 shipping to return it. Honestly, I should have paid closer attention to the return policy...but now that I know, I will not be ordering from Uncommon Goods again.
