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!
