Comments:The three tatos shown here are good examples of the traditional tato form: a self-closing flat pouch/purse or envelope, usually made from a single sheet of paper.
In Japan, tatos were traditionally used as coin purses or to hold small items like buttons, needles and thread. You could use tatos like the ones shown here to send messages or money gifts to your friends and family.
Note that the small cranes atop these tatos are not made separately and then attached to the finished model. Instead, they are an integral part of the model, created by folding flaps on the same sheet of paper that is used to make the prism-shaped body of the tato.
The instructions for this process include cutting several small slits in the paper. If you are an origami purist and object to any cutting, then this model is not for you.
To open a Crane Tato, pull the two solid color tabs apart from each other until they slide out from beneath the little cranes. Do this slowly and gently, so as not to tear the paper.
Close this type of tato by collapsing the left and right sides downward toward the center. Return the solid color tabs to their original positions, tucking them beneath the cranes.
Due to the importance of the color change in this model, double-sided paper is recommended.
