Learn interesting and unique money-folding techniques

Traditional origami is performed with square sheets of paper. But, since most of us don't walk around with square-shaped currency in our pockets, the architects of the Money Origami Kit had to come up with designs tailored to US currency.

What you'll find in the Money Origami Kit is a wonderful collection of sculptures with something for everyone. Use this kit to learn a new hobby, kill a little boredom, and discover a creative way to give money as a gift.

Master each design with the included practice dollar bills

The Money Origami Kit includes sixty practice dollar bills. While you could use them to hone your "making-it-rain" skills, their primary purpose is to help you master the money folding techniques outlined in the kit. 

The Money Origami Set includes 60 fake dollar bills so you can practice your money folding techniques before using the real thing.

Learn quickly from the instructional booklet and DVD

At, we're visual learners. So, we love that there is a DVD included in the Money Origami Kit. We found it easy to learn the designs by watching the two authors (Michael Lafosse and Richard Alexander) perform step-by-step demonstrations of each design.

Alternatively, you can reference the 64-page booklet which includes detailed instructions and diagrams for each of the 21 origami sculptures.
