Inner Gift Boxes
by Sue Mosher
I learned this box at a Japanese harvest moon-viewing festival, where it was called a "Japanese altar" not a "candy box." It's amazingly strong -- I have one on my desk storing 8 rechargeable batteries.
As part of a retreat on leadership, I made a box for each person and filled it with glass "jewels" to help embody their personal gifts, the prized qualities that they might want in turn to give back to their group. My hope is that, when they glance at these boxes in their homes and offices, they'll be reminded of how special they are and how each inner gift comes with the authority and obligation to use it well.
I love your folding instructions -- they're so clear and well illustrated!
