    Tom found the memory box, which was for the baby, on the dusty closet shelf.

    Explanation:

    The sentence contains a squinting modifier, which is a kind of misplaced modifier. It creates ambiguity and confusion because it is not clear which item it modifies: whether the previous or the following phrase. In the sentence, the squinting modifier for the baby can refer to the memory box for the baby or for the baby on the dusty closet shelf, making two possible different meanings for the same sentence.
