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?

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.

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.
