    I saw the tute, but I don'r see how large the octogon piece is. Only thing I saw was how wide the strips are , but not the octogone size. There are a couple of ladies asking the same question over there. Huggies, Fay

    They are 14 inches. The reason I didnt mention that is because it doesnt really matter,,yu can use whatever size octagon and steips yu choose. I was just showing the method.

    oh I have been looking for how to make an octagon. Are you
    still sending the newspaper pattern? I looked it up on google and I think I could geometrically do it. Is this what you did?

    Its really easy to make them. Draw a circle whatever size you want. ( I use a pie plate,pizza pan,or whatever) Fold it in half ,then fold again.Take a ruler and draw a line across the rounded edge from side to side and cut off the rounded portion. Unfold and you got it!

    Thanks Riversong! I have a small center made from a Dresden plate and I wanted to make it into an octagon. I am mathematically challenged so your instructions are great.
