Learn how to make an origami octagonal tato to use as a coaster! This eight sided origami Tato (or pouch) is almost round and makes a great coaster for your desk!
This origami tato starts off with an octagon, I prefer to cut off the extra corners but you could leave them there.
This method of making the tato ends up showing quite a few creases on the final piece. I really like the pattern.
I’m going to cover mine in PVA glue.. 🤓 You can also use that clear plastic sticky stuff. Or use paper that has a plasticy feel.
This tie I decided to make a diagram to go with the video, you can find it below the video, hope you can share the post, it really helps me keep things free 😀. Let me know how you get on in the comments!
