Creative Dollar Bill Origami

Dollar Bill Origami

Dollar Bill Origami (or money origami) is a type of origami that uses money instead of paper. We hope you enjoy this collection of dollar bill origami.

Origami is an ancient Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of square paper.

    I enjoyed folding the cat, but I had trouble at Step 26, and don’t know Spanish. I used Babelfish and loosely translated all the comments to help me fold it. Here they are:

    For “Gato” origami instructions by Roman Diaz.
    Loose translation of Spanish comments into English with additional editorial comments by Michael Robinson
    Title: Cat
    Begin with a rectangle of ratio 2.45:1
    Remove the square and use the leftover paper rectangle
    Step 20: The cat head’s “cheeks” are not flattened. (Ed. they are 3D)
    Step 21: To flatten the “cheeks”: (Vary to create different cat face shapes)
    Step 24: Vary the fold position to change the proportions of the cat’s body and tail.
    Step 26: Repeat Step 24, but this time, separate all of the layers (Ed: This is a double reverse fold; more easily accomplished by spreading out all of the layers when performing.)
    Step 28: Stick your finger in here.
    Step 30: Leave the paper opened up where you stuck your finger in.

    The F-14 is a perfect comment on the futility, wastefulness and cost of war.

    These are incredible – the fish and shark blew mymind! How can anyone have such nimble fingers?

    I think this is just further proof that ROBOTS HAVE ASSIMILATED HUMAN SOCIETY! Arm Yourselves for the Robo-Pocalypse! *puts on tin-foil hat*

  31. Luiz

    I got the koi down but i really wanna know how to make the camera for a teacher.

  32. Abdo Maya

  43. crazyjohn

  44. dolin

    good models, but there is a better way to waste money

  45. autumn

    I love all them

  46. giovanni

    and its a money saver and promotional gimmick. A single folder dollar bill is a more impressive tip then two singles; the same would be true with change given. I know I’d tip a bartender more if she/he gave my change like this. Its just cool.

  47. P.

    Nice collection. Do you have instructions on how to make a dollar bill lei like the ones worn at graduations?

  48. Cat Johnson

    I love the delicacy and intricacy of these pieces, with he old world and the new folded into each other. I know a woman who made the most amazing creations out of the paper in cigarette packages.

    Thanks for the great post!

  49. Diode

    wow you shold make 1 vrom a $100 bill and sell it 4 $200
