Hanji Jewelry Boxes

My next hanji project was to make some hanji jewelry boxes. It was the very last thing I made in my Korean hanji class before we returned to the States.

               I used the same design for the top of the boxes. But I still had a lot of cutting to do.
This is what my kitchen table looked like all week. I did clear a space for our dinner plates each night. Rocketman did not complain once.
Here is a closeup of one of the boxes. I also cut out a design for the front of each of the boxes. Don't you love the hardware. It's a hole-in-the-wall shop near Dongdaemun in Seoul that sells these the real cool hardware. My hanji teacher took me there once.
The inside has a tray which lifts out.
I needed Rocketman's abilities to attach all the hardware. I would have made a mess of it and he didn't mind at all. They turned out great and wait till you see what I'm making this week:)


  1. Were these made in Seoul? Where abouts are the Hanji classes?

  2. These were made in my home in the States with supplies I bought in Korea. I took my hanji classes in Suwon near Paldulmun. I do know you can also find hanji classes in Insadong just ask at one of the hanji shops. It's so much fun!
