These days, a dollar won't get you very far, but—in the right hands—a dollar bill can become a work of art.
In Michael LaFosse's Dollar Origami
, the world-renowned origami artist and co-founder of the eminent Origamido Studio shares twenty incredible creations specifically designed to be made out of dollar bills. Folded money models are wonderful gifts and conversation pieces, and LaFosse makes it easy for you to get started with projects ranging from "very simple" to "challenging". In addition to his unique and exclusive collection of twenty paper folding projects, LaFosse includes:
- Step-by-step instructions
- Origami diagrams
- 48 tear-out practice "dollar bills" with quick-start folding lines for the first five projects
- An instructional DVD with more than three hours of lessons, detailing each project in the book
It's no wonder that more and more people are realizing how fun dollar bill origami can be. Printed currency is easy to fold, remarkably durable, intricately patterned, and readily available. Whether you're making The Windmill Pillow, Prosperity Bamboo, The George Washington Knot, or Drahcir the Dragon, you—and your friends—will be delighted with the results!
