Dollar Bill Origami: Multiple Bill Folds.

From Kestrel: These need at least six dollar bills to find. The first two need 8 dollar bills, the last ones need 6. I did the third one with the bills facing one way for one, and with the bills facing the other way for the other one. That one is called an “umulius”.  Click for full size!

    @Marcus: those are actually pretty big… also please note, the umulius ended up the first pic here, not the third. (And I’m assuming, Marcus, that it’s the fold you are referring to.) They measure about 3″ on a side.

    I got the idea for folding the umulius from Siggy at A Trivial Knot. It’s actually fairly quick and simple to fold, although you do need to make 6 units to make one model. I like that fold; I think it’s pretty cool. I sure appreciate Siggy pointing that one out!

    Wery pretty, What comess next? A hat folded out of 1 $ bills? A fishing boat? A three stories house with a spa, a sauna and a winter garden? Inquiring minds want to know.

    So cool. If more origami is forthcoming I’d like to see animals. A dollar bill pig strikes me as amusing.

    Thank you all! LOL, a 3-story house with a spa, sauna and winter garden… now THAT would be a fold indeed. Don’t think I have enough dollar bills for that one… ;-)

    These are all I’ve sent so far, but I do know how to fold more animals. I should do more for you guys. Voyager, I think one of my books has a dollar bill pig in it. I never learned the pig… I’m not sure how people would react to that one!
