Learn how to make a geometric origami coaster or Tato which features a triangle on one side. The cool thing about this origami Tato is that you can open it to reveal the triangle, so it can be used to give someone a little note.
This origami coaster / tato is made from triangular paper, don’t worry the video explains how to make the triangle at the start and it’s very simple.
This origami shape has not much of a purpose, I do think it makes a cute envelope or note. It’s appealing if you enjoy geometric origami in general.
This is the second of three origami Tatos made with triangular paper, the first is the Star of David Tile and the third is Hexangle Tiles which I never made a post for.
