Extra Tips

  • Don't have a dollar bill on hand? No worries! You can use any paper bill currency 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!
  • Remember, it is highly advisable that you should not cut, burn, staple, and/or iron banknotes. Handle it with care .
  • You could add more petals by adding more dollar bills to make petal units.
