Papercraft Shichi-Go-San festival chitose-ame candy box!
Shichi-Go-San is a Japanese festival held on November 15th (or the nearest weekend) to celebrate the growth and well-being of young children!
The children are often dressed up in traditional Japanese costumes, and after a visit to the Shinto shrine to ask that they may grow up into strong and healthy boys and girls, they are given candy (chitose-ame), which they can keep in this handy paper basket decorated with a traditional crane. ;o)
