Introduction: Dollar Bill Origami Heart

About: The name's Alex. I'm currently majoring in Graphic Design at Cal Poly Pomona. When I'm not busy with schoolwork I like to practice hockey, watch some movies, modify my Nerf blasters, play with my Yamaha DTXpre…

I'm sure that you have probably seen this somewhere on the internet, but I felt that Instructables needed one. Well anyways, its a pretty cool way to give someone money. It only takes about 5 or so minutes to make, and its awesome.

Here is a video: Not very exiting, but it gets the job done.

Step 1: Finding a Dollar

I know this may be hard for some people (especially me), but you need to find a spare dollar that you can fold up. Try to find one that is pretty crisp and new.

Step 2: Turning a Diamond Thingy Into a Square.

You're bill should look something like this now.

Step 3: More Triangles to Make

Step 4: Making Triangles Into Squares.

Step 5: Folding the Edges of the Squares In

Step 6: Kinda What We Did in Step 4

Step 7: Cleaning Things Up.

Step 8: The Quarter Trick

That's so awesome. Here's mine with a Seychelles 10 rupees note and 25 cents. Looks a little crude though.

every year our school does a book drive. we also have an origami stand when we do it, but sometimes we need more inspiration for the stand. this is a FANTABULOUS (my fave word) example!

(except, 'o course, we would charge them more since the origami is made from bills and coins~~ )

SO awesome! nicely done, and when I make it, (or, at least, when I make an attempt to) I'll share a pic!!
