Paper currency is readily available paper for folding --- just look in your wallet! There are many clever models made from dollar bills, sometimes incorporating objects pictured on the bill as part of the design. You can transform your dollar bills into clothing, hearts, flowers, and much more. Dollar bill origami enthusiasts like to give folded bills to servers as a tip.

This dollar model features twelve numbered book volumes enclosed in a modular bookcase. The volume numbers come from the numbers on the bills designating their federal reserve district.

This is an intermediate model, requiring precise folding and careful assembly.

Links to crease patterns:


15 total American dollar bills (12 for the books, 3 for the bookshelf).
In order to learn, the folding and assembly have at least 5 bills (3 for the bookshelf, 2 for books). We will fold as many volumes as time and patience permit.
