These days, a dollar
won't get you very far, but—in the right hands—a dollar bill can become a work
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:
· 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
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!
Origami master Michael G. LaFosse is co-founder of the Origamido
