This book contains folding instructions for over 48 decorative box designs with the wall-lock structures of the traditional Japanese masu. Two foundation forms, that can also be used repetitively in square- grid tessellation patterns, constitute the starting points for all of the decorative lids.
With a little practice, most of these boxes (bottoms and decorative lids) are foldable in about 15 to 30 minutes - a small amount of time for producing a fabulous gift component.
A section at the end of the book outlines how to systematically explore many additional decorative designs similar to the ones presented.
