Creating origami stars from dollar bills

Making a star out of paper is one of the best ways to turn a dollar bill into something stunning. A money star is a great way to turn a dollar bill into a decoration or a present that you can give to someone. Each of our money heart origami tutorials has step-by-step instructions to make this activity a lot easier for you. They are all illustrated by hand to be simple yet detailed enough for beginners and kids to understand. Grab your dollar bill (or a rectangular piece of paper) and let’s start making some cool stars.

Gather the materials that you need first to make the star:

First things first, get a dollar bill or any currency bill of your choosing. You will be needing more for the other tutorial so it’s best to prepare an extra piece. Dollar bills are known for their durability because they are composed of linen and wool. It is great for beginners as it does not tear or rip easily. Also, giving them as gifts would last “longer” than regular paper.

If you want to give it as a present, you may tie it with a ribbon or put a letter or a gift tag along with your monetary gift. That way, the receiver will appreciate it more.

Note: You may use any paper if you don’t have or don’t want to use a dollar bill. Just make sure to use a paper that has the same proportions as a dollar bill.

To make these cool stars, it’s best to learn the 3 basic folds that are used in making origami.

Valley Fold

The most common fold is the valley fold, this is when you simply fold a part of the paper forward along the designated fold line(dashed lines). Once folded, then folded. the paper forms a “V”.

Mountain Fold

The opposite of the valley fold, you need to fold a part of the paper from behind instead of folding it forward.

Squash fold

To use this technique, pry open the 2 layers of the paper slightly, then press and flatten the paper to make the fold.
