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
I used some really nice very saturated paper for the smaller ones. It’s from Daiso, available to buy online here.
