Younger children could do these models also, but would need guidance as precise folds make the outcome better looking.
I wanted QUICK, SIMPLE but RECOGNIZABLE money figures that I can give to our porters on the cruise ships I entertain on. This book makes giving dollar bill gifts fun, for me AND for the porters/waiters that receive them.
I was thrilled to find out how many figures are taught in this book: 32 models! For $5.00, to me that is an excellent bargain!
I will be recommending this book to all of my origami friends, due to its easy-to-follow instructions, and how nice each item turns out.
|Length: 0:33 Mins|
Hint: wrap a few crisp dollar bills in with the book. That adds a nice touch.
As you can see by my video, the book is large and opens wide. You can create hands-free. The images are large and the instructions are very easy to follow.
There are 32 figures to be made, but I feel once my son gets the hang of it, he will be making his own origami creations.
This book and its intended designs are easy to implement for the following three reasons.
1- Everyone has access to a few dollars, even if they are not yours most people wont object to you showing them how to make a dollar look like a fish or a hat. You don't have to buy folding paper or use printing paper to make squares for folding. You can make your origami and spend it like normal money if you want. It brightens peoples day a little bit when you pay them with a 20 dollar bill that looks like a whale and its a great conversation starter if you want to share you hobbies.
2- The designs are easy. I have no experience doing previous origami and I was able to do every design in the book just by following the instructions. The most it took me to do one of the designs was 20 minutes, because I had to take time on some steps. That didn't take away from the experience though.
3- This is fun and the results are fast and easy to see. When you finish your bat it looks like a bat, your whale looks like a whale and you get a strong sense of satisfaction. So often in life our results are philosophical, intangible, or delayed, its nice to have something simple and immediate to admire and be proud of.
With that said I fully recommend this book for people who want to enter the world of origami or just expand their origami to dollar bills. This would be fun to do with children, or just to show real quickly having a fun dinner with friends when your leaving a tip.
I thought PERFECT, because I wouldn't need to buy origami paper, and who doesn't have a dollar bill handy?
At his birthday party, dollar bills were being taken out and shapes were being tried. It added life to the party as people made the objects and felt the accomplishment of making their own "party favor."
The directions were easy to follow with large illustrations. There is no way the book could be any simpler.
