Make a pretty origami octagonal tato with an 8 point star design on the front. These origami star tatos look wonderful as hanging decorations or turn them into useful coasters.
These octagonal tatos are very pleasing to make. I decided to cover them in sticky tape, it flattens them and protects them. If I had a laminator or manual lamination sheets I would use those! Lacquering them would only be possible if you used glue to stick all of the flaps down first.
I plan to hang them up. You could even use these as Christmas tree decorations! – Actually I decided to use them as coasters instead!
A ‘tato’ is a coin purse, not sure how many coins would fit in it though!
You will need:
- 1 sheet of square paper
Paper used: 17.5 x 17.5 cm
Final model size: 8.5 x 8.5cm
