You can use this folding technique for any dollar bill! I prefer using a $1 because I'm cheap like that. :)

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Getting Started
Start with the front up. Crease horizontally down the middle and fold both the top and bottom sides inward like the second picture.
Step 2: Fold the Left Edge
Take the left side and fold it behind right where the green ends.
Step 3: Fold the Collar
Fold each corner over to approximately where it shows in the picture. It is important that there are those flaps at this step or else you won't be able to hold the rest of the shirt in place.
Step 4: Fold Right Side Over to the "OF"
Take the opposite side of where we were working on earlier and bring it over. It helps me to reference where the placement should be by creasing where the raw edge that divides the O and the F of "OF."
(PICTURE 2) Flip the Section over again- making sure this edge is just a little below the flaps mentioned earlier. When you double over, we will eventually have the edge go underneath the collar, so you want it to be a little below that line.
Step 5: Making the Sleeves
Here's where it gets a little trickier. Pay close attention to the pictures. First you unfold the last step to go back to the long section, then you take an imaginary line and draw it from the top and bottom points of the first crease on the left and a point somewhere in the middle of the center section. Valley fold out and crease back so that it winds up looking like you popped a sleeve out of the side.
Step 6: Your Done!
After you have made the sleeves, flip the whole section back up and tuck the edge of the shirt under the two collar flaps. Congratulations, you have successfully made a dollar bill shirt!
Now that your done, have you ever thought about making some matching pants?
