Origami dollar guitar

Money is a beautiful thing, and better yet -- it can be used for origami! With a dollar bill I'll show you how to make this unique guitar. It is a little hard to make once you get in depth with it, but it is a great present to give to your friends when you don't want to buy them something.

Step 2: Repetition, Repetition

Fold the bill in half width-wise, then unfold it and fold the bill to the crease in the middle. Return the bill to its normal position and fold it to the 1/4 crease. Unfold and fold the bottom edge up to the 1/8 crease. Flip the bill over.

Step 3: More repetition

Fold the top flap down to the bottom edge and unfold. Now fold the bottom edge up to the middle crease, being sure to let the paper behind swing out.

Step 4: The neck

Fold the top part over to the right or left and let the paper that binds it with the piece behind come out as a triangle. Flatten the triangle and fold the top half back in position with this new modification. Repeat this on the other half. Now fold the long edges of this stem to the center once, and then do it again (Twice).

Step 6: Back bending

Take the front flaps and pull them up over the stem/neck. Fold the body up in fourths, then unfold and flip over. Fold the bottom edge up to the nearest crease, then unfold and find a way to get it inside the body. I unfolded the body and stuck the edge in there, but there are certainly more ways to do it.

i made a different version of this. At step six fold the corners in and crimp the sides.
