In this instructible I'm going to be showing you how to make a dollar BAND ring. A band ring is, contrary to first impressions of the name, not a ring for band geeks, but simply a ring in and of itself. (No gems!) So far all the other dollar rings I've seen have a little dollar "gem" on top, and that's cool and all but I wanted something, well, less feminine.
Plus they don't really fit big fingers.
Anyways I figured this out on my own a while back and now I want to share the love =P
This is my first instructable so I hope it's not to bad. hahaha
Step 1: What you'll need
What You'll Need. Pretty straight forward if you ask me, hahahaha
1) One Dollar.
2) Your hands.
If you don't have hands I really can't help you, Sorry. =P
Step 2: The 1st Fold
Flip the bill so George's portrait is face up, start at the bottom and make a fold length-wise to just above his upper lip, the sweet spot is his mustache area between his upper lip and nose. The fold here will determine the positioning of the finished product, but we'll get more into that later =P
Step 3: Fold number 2
Take the first fold and fold it onto itself, it should look something like the photo above
Step 4: Fold the top strip
At the top of the bill you'll see a small white border lining the top of the bill, fold it at the tiny black strip above the "federal reserve" bit, and if done right, it should perfectly cover the little black line. The reason you're doing this is because if you don't, when you finish the ring the little strip you folded would stick out at the bottom, and it looks tacky =P
