This is my version of a Double Origami Heart made from a SINGLE BILL.
Items required for this project:
  • ANY bill ($1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, or if you're really crazy or have it around a $1,000 bill)
  • time and patience

Step 1: Creasing

  1. To begin, start by using a crisp dollar bill.
  2. Crease the bill in half width wise.
  3. Then crease the bill in half height wise.


Step 2: Folding

  1. Take one side (in this case, the right) and fold it towards the center.
  2. Now in the front view, fold the bottom portion to the center of the bill.
  3. Repeat with the top portion of the bill.

Step 3: Shaping the right side

Once you have completed the initial crease and the fold, it's now time to shape the hearts.
  1. Crease one corner on the bottom portion of the bill.
  2. Repeat with the top corner.
  3. Lift this flap up and tuck the corner inside and flatten the crease you made.
  4. By doing that, this should create an extra flap. Bring the flap down towards you.
  5. Repeat with the top portion.

Step 4: Shaping the left side

  1. rotate the item 180 degrees and repeat the process for the other side by creasing both the top and bottom corners. (Note: image from prior step was used. I forgot to include the image. same procedure but different side.)
  2. Once you have completed shaping both sides, you should now have two pentagons that looks like a home plate in a baseball field.
  3. Next, pinch the center and fold the piece in half, and flatten one side.
  4. Repeat with the other side.
Hop I can follow the steps since origami isn't my forte but this would be perfect for sending my niece some cash for her birthday. I don't like giving cash in lieu of a gift but what do you give a 14 year old girl that works better than cash :)

thank you! Not sure if people would be confused with some of the steps and I tried my best to explain the steps. if they were confused with some of the steps, they could check the video on how to do it.

thanks for the comment :)
