A great activity that you can make with a piece of dollar is to turn it into a mini version of various articles of clothing. One easy way is by turning it into a shirt. To make this paper shirt, you will be needing a smooth piece of a dollar bill. If you don’t have a dollar bill on hand, you may use a rectangular piece of paper with a 7:3 ratio. Follow the 9 step procedure below, and once finished, you can now have your own cute mini version of a money shirt.
