Picture of Fold a dollar bill into an impossibly small rectangle!
This is great for including in birthday cards as it is not only a gift but a puzzle as well!

Step 1: Use the newest bill you can find.

Picture of Use the newest bill you can find.
Using a $5 or $10 bill is best, because the design on the reverse helps to hide where the crease is, and makes it much harder to figure out how to open it. This will work with any bill, but a newer one will make nice sharp creases.

In the US, any bill is valid if you have more than 51% of it. go to any bank and they will exchange it

This just ruined my day! I am new to this site and I was thinking about unique things I can do and post. Well, this was my idea and its already here. :'( I would use this to bet people with. "I'll bet you a dollar that you can't open this without ripping it in a minute" Ah, I made lots of money that way.

harder to do with Australian (plastic) money, but harder to rip too!

now i really dont get step 12!!! How do i do it

If you try to match up your bill with the picture (using a $10 bill) it should be easier to figure out. You actually fold in both ends, folding the three triangles under.

timmy1234s7 years ago

Do it with a $1 bill with the bill flipped over (Washington's face would be on the back in step 5). When you're done, his eyes are peeking through the two strips on he back. It's pretty sweet/creepy.

could you add another photo with the bill next to something, like a quarter to show the size?

Ah, but that's half the fun in making it!

I agree, it would be a good idea to take a picture of it next to something to compare sizes. Otherwise, cool Instructable!
