As I've begun to start on my new hobby, a friend of mine gave me a heads up that you can actually take money and use them as projects. I thought to myself, well money is paper why not? Did a little research on Amazon and discovered this recently released book. Through my online research on origami, I've stumbled upon the authors names many times and figured why not take a chance on them since I've only read good things about these 2.

Much to my surprise, the projects aren't that difficult as they looks. Some actually are quite complex but for a beginner like me there are many options to work on. I'd recommend this book to those who are in to origami as well.

The best part is the finished projects make great gifts. So next time, instead of that card with money, why not use that monetary gift and put a nice spin to it?

Well, DH loves this book, I bought it for him, but it's causing me to want to try some of the designs too...bad bad bad because I have so many other necessary things I need to be doing. It has many nice origami designs and this is NOT your average Origami book, it's a little advanced to say the least. Honestly, I don't know how people come up with these complicated ingenious designs. Yes, these are going to take some practice to get some of them done well, but the authors have taken the time to show all the folding steps very well. The book is Well written and illustrated for the folding steps. Complex designs that really do look like what they are supposed to. Some of the designs uses more than one dollar.
A dragon really looks like a dragon, as you can see on the cover. And if you don't have any dollar bills, then in the back of the book, there are a couple dozen or so tear out dollar bills to use for practice, the paper is a little heavier than real bills and holds the creases nicely too. Before I tore the bills out, I folded the serrations back and forth to ensure a clean tear. Nice.

If you like Origami, I do recommend this book. The designs won't disappoint.

I have been folding dollar bills into a variety of shapes for close to 45 years. As a teenager, I started leaving part of my tips at restaurants in the shapes of a 2 dollar bikini (top and bottom - from my first book), peacock, elephant, shoes, boot, boat, and pig to name a few. I soon discovered that I had to give up on the idea of leaving a bikini as part of my tip - especially after I got married - my wife was NOT amused. I have purchased multiple "Dollar Origami" books over the years, and find this book to be the best book I own with respect to the diagrams, pictures, and quality of the models you can create. What's special about this book, is that if tells you that you are making a dragon, a rabbit, a seahorse, an orchid, a teddy bear, or a great seal, etc, you don't have to apply a lot of imagination to visualize the finished model as what it's named. The models in this book really look like what they are named - you don't have to guess. I have seen some money folding books where I hardly recognize the models as what they are supposed to represent. Of course, I will never have enough books on dollar origami (I have loved origami since 2nd grade when my older brother brought home a flapping crane he made in 6th grade) - but I do know for sure, that my library can't be without this one. I don't know how my library survived this long without this excellent book.

This DVD really made a huge difference. I have never done origami before and after doing the standing bunny with the DVD I have done intermediate projects from other books also. This is a must.. . .
They really go over like a bomb when you leave them for tips! Some tell me that I made their day with them. Now they fight for me when I walk in. LOL. I'm a queen!?

The DVD included with the instructions make folding the items very easy to understand. I gave this book to my cousin who has problems with following written instructions, but can easily follow the visual instruction. I folded some of the items and left them as tips.

I really like it except for the fact that some of the demos fail to explain what's going on...and it could be my own lack of experience as well, but I was hopeful it would be easier than it is.
