Overview


Origami enthusiasts find it particularly enjoyable and challenging to create models from dollar bills rather than traditional origami paper. This book by origami expert John Montroll, with several contributors, explains how to make 37 figures and objects by folding money.
Step-by-step instructions and clear diagrams show paper folders at all levels of expertise how to fashion everything from common objects such as a house with a chimney to inspired plants, birds, and other animals. A swan and boat should be easy for beginners. A windmill, peacock, pelican, and tree will suit the skills of intermediate-level hobbyists; while an alligator, a flower, and a bison should prove to be no problem for advanced practitioners of this age-old art.

THE BOOK IS PACKED WITH BEAUTIFUL DESIGNS, BUT I HAVE ONLY HAD SUCCESS MAKING ONE OF THEM! THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE VERY VAGUE AND THE BLACK AND WHITE LINE DRAWINGS ARE NOT MUCH HELP. THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR A BEGINNER!!!

This book is awesome! It has some really good models for dollar bill origami. I'd get this book before the "Dollar Bill Animals in Origami" by the same author. This book has some easy models in it to get you warmed up for the harder stuff. But don't be fooled, there are some HARD models in here too. Some of the steps in this book are tricky and hard to follow, but if you know all your origami folds, just do the fold he tells you to do and it will work out. Lots of these models are not flat, but 3D'ish, so the folds won't line up like he shows in the book until you realize that it's not flat. Whatever the case, i made all the models in this book. They all work. But alot of the models become more art then following the instructions. Just takes a little practice :)

If the diagrams were shown on dollar bills prehaps this book would have been easier to follow.
