Introduction: Origami Dollar Bill Space Shuttle

Picture of Origami Dollar Bill Space Shuttle

This is a space shuttle that I made on a road trip to Minnesota. It is about 1.75" long, 1.5" wide, and 1" tall. It is made out of a 20 because I did not have any 1's with me at the time.

Hi there,
I am so thrilled to have found a paper model of the space shuttle. It is truly lovely! My son, (6) and daughter and I travelled from London England on 5th July so that we could be at Coco Beach for the last launch.

If I could possibly trouble you to show me how this is made, that would be amazing. My son has just returned to school last week and the deal I made with the Head Master was that we would do a pre-prep assembly (amplified show and tell) when school returned. In the second year of formal schooling there is a space discovery project, so the school are thrilled that one of the boys went to see the last launch. I remember vividly being taken to the assembly hall to gather around the one television in my entire school to watch the first shuttle launch and it is a precious memory and no better way to affirm that America is indeed the land of the free - and on a day such as today, my sympathy for your loss, but my full respect and admiration for your country rising again and standing taller than terror.

I know it must be awfully time consuming for you to do stages etc, and photograph them, but it would be the most fabulous way of the children getting to hold a model and even possibly create them at the assembly - I'm sure i can
get the IT chap to beam up your PDF for us to follow on a screen.

The show and tell is this Friday. You will be given full credit I assure you.

Many thanks in hopeful anticipation.

Anna, Jasper (and the students of Hall Grove School!)
