Learn how to make a pretty origami compass star tato! This is a variation of the traditional origami 8 point star tato.  It’s made from 1 sheet of square paper, no glue required!

You can make this tato with a thicker frame around the star.. or fold the edges in again so that the star takes up the whole octagon.

These are a modification of the traditional octagonal star tato.

I can imagine these would look really nice as laminated origami coasters or maybe even little earrings.
