Extra Tips

  • Don't have a dollar bill on hand? No worries! You can use any paper bill currency you have or available in your country. What's great about most paper money is that it's durable to be folded and turned into anything.
  • Besides paper money, you may do this on origami paper or any paper that can withstand folding multiple times. Cut a piece of paper with a 1:2.35 ratio and you're good to go! Have fun folding!
