This is a intermediate level origami model. It may be somewhat difficult to newcomers, but to practiced hands it should be fairly easy.

Step 1: Materials

Two dollar bills (or any other amount). Newer and crisper bills will make this model easier to fold and give you a cleaner looking dragon.

Step 2: The Main Body

The body of the dragon. Pictures are mostly self explanatory. The body folds are mainly inside crimp folds, inside reverse folds, and outside reverse folds. The head is an outside reverse fold followed by an inside reverse fold.

Step 3: The Wings

Step 4: Attach Them Together

You may want to use glue or tape to help you attach the wings to the body. The wing construction is folded in half, placed inside the body, then folded outwards where the back of the dragon meets the wings.
