Self Closing Boxes & Tato


Self Closing Boxes & Tato

This page is about self closing boxes and traditional “tatos”. Tatos are of Japanese origin: they are flat, decorative packets used to store small items such as buttons, thread, and needles. Interesting similar paper constructions are made in Germany (called “Patenbriefs”) and you can find evidence of them in the form of Victorian Puzzle Purses. Instructions to make origami containers are divided into 3 sections:
