The Masu box is one of the most basic (and awesome) units of origami, and can be morphed into a myriad of structures. We'll start by making a selection of boxes, lids, and inserts and then we'll flatten the boxes and use them as sections in a 4-needle Coptic binding; as containers in the Chinese Sewing Box book by Hedi Kyle; and as a three-dimensional Jacob's Ladder variation. All of these structures will be able to house low-relief objects, prints, drawings, text, instructions, poems, and so on. Students may bring a selection of things to class. Prerequisite: None
