origami money


How to turn your boring money gift into something special x 💸


- Dollar bill

- Creative hands


Step 1. Crease the bill horizontally down the middle and fold both the top and bottom sides inward

Step 2. Take the upper side and fold a little piece behind

Step 3. Fold the two corners over, just like the picture is showing. Later, these corners are used to keep the shirt in place

Step 4. Take the opposite side of where we were working on earlier and bring it over

Step 5. Flip again and make sure it goes underneath the collar, this must be the case otherwise you can’t complete the shirt

Step 6. Unfold the last 2 steps

Step 7. Here’s where it gets a little trickier. Pay close attention. You are now back to the long section, use the first fold line to fold the sleeves. Fold out and crease back so that it winds up looking like you popped a sleeve out of the side

Step 8. Now fold back up like you did in step 4 and 5

Step 9. Put the shirt underneath the collar

There you have it, the ultimate lazy gift!

Remember Wada Kouji

It’s been a year since Wada-san’s passing (April 03, 2016)
Let’s all take a moment and remember him, or if you like, you can contribute something of your own to honor him.

If you are looking for ideas, Onkeikun and Rainbow 09 have suggested their own idea for your messages to Wada.
You can make an origami butterflies or donate money to cancer society. Any ways you like to contribute.


Each swan is ¼ smaller than the last. I started with one regular mini post-it note and kept cutting them smaller. Ladies and Gentlemen of the internet, I present to you the glorious art of origami!
I made each swan by hand, which was definitely tough to do with the last two, but somehow I managed!

Here is a $2 butterfly. Well, it would be worth $2 if that was a real $2 bill. I took the image of the bill and modified it so it would not be considered counterfeiting. I will post the image that I used to print this in a later post so you can print your own fake money too. The butterfly was designed by Michael Lafosse.

Happy Folding!
