Video showing how the discs spin when thrown.

$8 is all you need to create this flying disc. I like this one because you can play with the pattern a little based on how you fold the bills. This disc puffs out around the edges and reminds me of a Crunchwrap Supreme from Taco Bell. It flies amazingly far and is fun to play catch with.

Step 1: Materials

You need:
-8 dollar bills
-your hands
Is it not a crime to destroy Government property? I would encourage using the same size paper as a 1 dollar bill and then go from there....
This project doesn't destroy the bills. This is every bit as legal as putting dollar bills in a bi-fold wallet.
Great dollar bill origami design!
talk about makin some fast money. or makin your money go faster? you decide.
:) good one!
Could you make a cheaper version of this using rectangular paper instead of currency? :)
Sure! You could cut normal paper according to the USD dimensions. <br><br>I don't know all the rules or anything but I was considering scanning and printing one of the bills so that I could have crisper money to fold. I wouldn't take it outside my home but I would still be able to have to pattern that's unique to this folding technique.
You will find that your scanner will not scan a bill, and your printer will not print it :) Both have circuitry to prevent scanning or printing currency.
Both my scanner and printer (one in the same machine) will scan and print the bill. That setting is only in place on some machines and from what I've been told different countries may have different regulations.
Not true; I just scanned and printed a $1 bill with my 1-year old HP multi-function printer
Now I want to go scan some money just to see it not work lol!
The only flying disc still worth $8 bucks it falls apart ! Just don't throw it in your neighbors yard, they might not throw it back :)
Damn euros, there is much risk do that!!
talk about &quot;throwing your money around&quot; lol <br>
I purposely left any money puns out of my Instructable because I knew you guys would have some good ones.
love your comment lol
Interesting use of money, however it would be rather expensive to make one of these where I live... the lowest value bill corresponds to about $10.
You could always cut paper to USD dimensions and use that. I haven't tried (maybe you want to and post your findings) but I bet other size rectangles would work too.
that is awesome us of money
