Class Description:
The Puzzle Box is an interlocking array of smaller boxes nestled within a larger hinged and latched box, useful for a jewelry box, netsuke storage, or other smaller items, with an added treat of a secret compartment appropriate for love letters or other flat objects, using a false bottom. We will use strong, beautiful Chiyogami papers as well as book cloth and book board. The key to this beautiful box is accurate measuring, sharp creasing, and an eye for symmetry and color.
