Instructables

I'm sure that you have probably seen this somewhere on the internet, but I felt that Instructables needed one. Well anyways, its a pretty cool way to give someone money. It only takes about 5 or so minutes to make, and its awesome.

Here is a video: Not very exiting, but it gets the job done.

Step 1: Finding a dollar

I know this may be hard for some people (especially me), but you need to find a spare dollar that you can fold up. Try to find one that is pretty crisp and new.

Step 2: Turning a diamond thingy into a square.

You're bill should look something like this now.

Step 3: More triangles to make

Step 4: Making triangles into squares.

Step 5: Folding the edges of the squares in

Step 6: Kinda what we did in step 4

Step 7: Cleaning things up.

Thank you so much.
Was looking for dollar bill origami and just happen to see it was instructables.com Clicked the link, loved the picture so I gave it a try. This is mine. I changed the back a little bit for the 5 dollar bill so Mr. Lincoln was facing out. Thank you again, wasn't to hard and is so beautiful.

 Great Instructable!

As you sure know, we are using euros € here in Europe. So that means that we do have very little dollar bills here. I still wanted to do this so I took a 10€ bill and started doing it. Your steps where a bit hard to understand for me but when I looked at the following picture I did understand. The 10cent did fit perfectly in to the heart too!

Thanks for posting a picture! It looks great with different currency!
Just a note (hah!), for currencies like New Zealand (& Australia too I think) it is incredibly hard to get it to hold its shape like a US/UK note or paper as they are printed on polymer, not paper.

I agree.

Thanks for the instructions. I took the liberty of improving on your design so that the heart lays flat. The side "ears" of the heart are folded inwards (or inverted), and the top flap is folded forwards behind the coin. Hope you like it...

With a small tool, it makes origami with nice creases.

Thanks for the tutorial. I used this for tooth fairy money for my daughter's first lost tooth. I'm sure she's going to like it.

Super easy to follow!! Thanks so much!! The "tooth fairy" made a stop tonight for my daughter and I'm sure she's going to love this under her pillow!!

Love this idea!

Pic 6 in these steps is unclear, I'm not exactly sure what it is I'm supposed to do. It would have been more helpful if you would have explained some instead of just saying "There it goes".... :(
LegoBrickMaster7 (author)  lilcub281 year ago
That little triangle just gets folded under, next to the spine on the back of the heart. If the pictures are unclear you can watch the video, and it should clear things up.

Good luck! You're almost there!

Didn't quite get the coin tucking in the heart part at the end. For some reason I didn't have a flappy thing to hold it in. But hey, at least you could tell my attempt is a heart. Great instructable!
Great instructions! I'm a server and it would make my day to get an awesome tip like this. I used the back fold on mine to create a stand so the heart popped up off the table :)

Very easy-to-follow directions...I made one to leave under the pillow for my son who just lost a tooth, and his reaction was, "Wow, the Tooth Fairy is AWESOME!" Thanks, son, I'll be sure to tell her you said that. :)

Haha, that's AWESOME!
