Dollar Bill Origami Heart




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 DTXp...

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.

Will a Dollar Coin fit in the opening?

This is so easy but when I first looked at it I thought it would be tooooooo hard but I ended up trying and did it thanks to the amazing steps by - LegoBrickMaster7

perfect step by step instructions with perfect pictures and notes...way easy to follow.

Thank you,


A bit hard but after you're done its satisfactory.

I just made one and gave it to my boyfriend to carry in his wallet! Thank you for taking the time to show how it is made!

Did it! With an old 5 Bolivares bill and a Two Pence coin of a pound.

My kids tooth fairy money. Thanks


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!!

Thanks so much !, I'm gonna impress my girlfriend:-)

Nice tutorial easy to follow!!!!
