Money Origami Gifts: A Beginner's Guide To Folding Creative 3D Money From Dollars And Turn Them Into Gifts!

Have you ever seen paper sculptures created from money?

Like a $1 butterfly, or a $10 heart, or a $100 crane? Imagine, tipping your waiter “thank you” with a $5 heart sculpture. Or proposing, “Will you be mine?” to your crush with a $100 dollar ring? Wouldn’t that surprise and create excitement?

Money Origami is origami - the Japanese art of paper folding, but instead of using plain paper, money bills are used instead.
They are fun to create and make very interesting conversation pieces and cash gifts.
Cash gifts become much more memorable when given with a handcrafted, personal Money Origami touch!

Instructor Biography

Mari G., Origami Enthusiast, Entrepreneur

Hello everyone! Coming from an experienced background in origami, I was featured in Disney Channel Asia back in 2005. Origami has been a passion that has stuck with me and unlocks my creativity to this day. I love to teach others and enjoy learning exciting knowledge as well. 

As for my other hobbies, body building is my favorite sport. The excitement of getting up early in the morning to forge my physique charges my motivation.
