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.
Difficulty Level: Intermediate- Hard
Start with your preferred side (See note above). Fold only along the dashed lines as illustrated. Crease the folds well and then unfold.
The second step is to fold the dollar bill’s top and bottom edge to the middle.
It should now look like this once you folded the top and bottom sides. Now fold the right side to the left side. Crease it well and then unfold.
Fold the right and left part to the top along their respective dashed lines. See step 4.2 on how it should look like once folded.
Crease it well and unfold.
Fold the right and left part to the bottom along their respective dashed lines. See step 4.2 on how it should look like once folded.
Crease the dollar bill well and unfold.
Flip the dollar bill to the other side.
Fold along the direction of the arrow and along the dashed line. The dashed line is located at the center of the X creases on the left side.
Unfold the dollar bill.
Repeat step 7.1 on the right side of the dollar bill.
Again, unfold it.
Please turn it on the other side.
Bring together the top and bottom sides. Pinch along the arrows as illustrated above. The creases made will help to form the dollar bill.
Once pinched, bring the left side to the opposite side.
Fold the top layer to the left along the dashed lines. Make sure to move the top layer only.
Like what you did on step 9, pinch the top and bottom sides along the dashed lines as shown.
Bring the right part of the dollar bill to the other side.
Fold the top layer to the right along the dashed lines. Make sure to move the top layer only.
To make the band of the ring, fold the top and bottom sides to the middle. Follow along the dashed lines as shown.
Bring the end parts together.
Almost done! Secure the band by inserting one end to the inside of the other end.
Your dollar bill ring is done! You may experiment by using the different currencies of bills or any paper to make your own unique diamond ring.
