Hexagonal Hanji box

One of the first projects I have completed in 2010, as part of my goal to make 20 art or craft projects this year. It is from a kit, sold at a great Hanji shop in Namdaemun Underground Arcade, in Seoul. It came with no instructions, so it took a bit of time figuring out how to put it together. Hopefully it is ok.

Korean Hanji Bat Box – Part one

My first craft project in Korea, a Hanji (Korean paper) box, constructed from a small kit. The kit is from a small shop of amazing Hanji creations and kits in the underground arcade in Namdaemun Market in Seoul. The language barrier between the friendly owner was difficult to overcome, but I managed to get the right stuff needed to make it and a rough idea of how to make it.

Having some book binding experience definitely helped the process.
