How to Make a Diamond Shaped Dollar Bill Ring

Introduction:

There are various ways to make a ring out of a dollar bill. What’s unique about this dollar ring or also known as the insignia ring, is that it forms into a diamond ring when finished assembling. It is a bit tricky to make, but don’t worry! This step-by-step instruction will guide you on your own diamond-dollar ring.

Note: The outcome of your dollar bill’s design will vary on what side of the dollar bill you will face. If you want the dollar bill to have the US President’s face as the design, then face it on the side that has the ONE printed on it. If you want the ONE printed as a design, then face the US President’s side printed on the first step.

Step 1

Fold the bill into a V-shape

Your first step is to get a dollar bill of your choice. Then start with your preferred side (See note above). Fold the dollar bill crosswise. The crease that you will make will be helpful later.

Make a crease mark in the middle by folding then unfolding the dollar bill lengthwise in half.

Bring the left and right edges to the top. Do so by diagonally folding along the dashed lines.

Fold the left part of the bill upwards. Imagine that there are two diagonal lines that start from the center of the bill, and that these two lines resemble the letter V. Fold along the left diagonal line.

Then do the same for the right side. Let's call these folds the V-fold. You should have something like from the image above. Once done, crease it well and then unfold.

Step 2

Make crease at the left and right sides

Make a V-fold again but this this time it should be in a downwards direction.

As you pinch, bring the left side to the opposite side.

Like what you did on the previous step, pinch the top and bottom sides along the right vertical crease mark as shown.

Step 4

Shape the band of the dollar ring
