Picture of How to make a Dollar BAND Ring
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

Picture of 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

Picture of 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

Picture of 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

Picture of 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

Hey, wait. If somebody didn't have hands, then how did they work the mouse to get to this site?
...........the game ಠ_ಠ
Looks cool… I wonder how one could be made out of a English note.
Yeah a scottish pound note! That would be pretty cool.
R U Scottish? Lol I'm Ozzie, my dad gave me a dollar from his trip to Malaysia
No it's just have a sort of collection of old notes worth a 1 in whatever country they're from such as the old dutch currency. They're not worth anything so might as well use them :L
JayKay170 (author)  TerminalDragon3 years ago
I'm sure you could, I mean this is all bout folds so I think you could do it on any bill, you would just have to tinker with it a little to make it right. I think the English note is wider then the dollar but if you did some extra folds like in steps 2 and 3 I bet you could make it work. =P If you do take a pic! I'd love to see it hahaha =D

These look really good, now I just need to find a dollar bill . . . (I live in the UK). I wonder if there is a way of waterproofing or protecting them, or is that not really a problem?
US bills are made from a fabric type paper... It makes them much more durable and resistant to the brutal torture we put them through. You can wash them in the washer and then dry them and they just loose the pressed look that they have. So water proofing is not necessary. they will however rip like fabric can.
JayKay170 (author)  britewood3 years ago
Yup...I've washed my hands wearing it lots of times, the folds and everything keep it intact pretty well. The only thing it really does is loosen it a little bit, which isn't that big of a deal. =P
Very cool! I got my bling on. :)
I remember back in 4th grade (1975) when a kid came to school with one of these. I told him how cool it looked and asked him to show me how he did it. He was a jerk and told me no. Thanks! :-) Diggin it. Wearing it now. *chuckle*
very well done easy to make
