Star-Tato Origami Tortilla

Star Tato Origami Tortilla

In the old days, a tato is a traditional origami fold used to create an envelope or thin packet. In Japan, the tato was used to hold small objects like needles or bits of thread.  In Germany, informal baptism certificates (called “Patenbriefs”) were folded in a similar way.  Learn more about tatos and self folding containers here.

In the photo above, Gerardo G created a Origami Tortilla based on a Star Tato created from a circular sheet of paper. It’s a creative idea of old meets new.  See Star-Tato from Circle by Melisande (step 3b).
