Picture of Dollar Bill Origami Heart

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.

That's so awesome. Here's mine with a Seychelles 10 rupees note and 25 cents. Looks a little crude though.

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.

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...

I made it with a $5 because my $1s weren't stiff. I think I'll probably leave these as tips =D so pretty


That's super cute :) Thanks for this tutorial.

Nice! Indonesian Rupiah with New Zealand Dollar :)

every year our school does a book drive. we also have an origami stand when we do it, but sometimes we need more inspiration for the stand. this is a FANTABULOUS (my fave word) example!

(except, 'o course, we would charge them more since the origami is made from bills and coins~~ )

SO awesome! nicely done, and when I make it, (or, at least, when I make an attempt to) I'll share a pic!!

that is the awesomest thing i have ever seen

its fantabulous

Loved it. Will make it soon with a different currency. cheers :)

Thanks so much !, I'm gonna impress my girlfriend:-)
Nice tutorial easy to follow!!!!
