Using dollar bills, you can make your own origami flower. A simple paper activity for kids and beginners, this tutorial is quick and easy to follow. Grab three dollar bills and a piece of string, wire, or a twist tie. If you don’t have any dollar bills on hand, you may use any rectangular piece of paper with the same proportions as a dollar bill.

The first step is to fold the dollar bill in half. Crease it well and then unfold.
Divide the dollar bill into 4 equal sections, Fold along those divisions (dashed lines) well and then unfold.
Fold the left edge to the left vertical crease line and then fold the right edge to the right vertical crease line.
Diagonally fold the corners along the dashed lines as shown.
Bring the top and bottom edge inwards to the center.
Fold the dollar bill crosswise in half. This will be one of the petals of the origami money flower. Make 2 more of these petals.
Once you have made 3 flower segments, grab your twist tie or any string you have on hand to tie these dollar bills together.
Stack the dollar bills on top of each other and then tie them up. Flare open the layers of each dollar bill to form the petals.
