- PLEASE NOTE: Making this model does NOT ruin or destroy the dollar in any way! It is simply being folded, there are NO tears or cuts being made in the dollar. You can always unfold it and straighten it out, or better yet give it to someone in ring form as a tip :-)
In this video I explain in extreme detail for beginners how to make an Origami ring from a dollar bill and give a quick way you can make it from paper.
I do recommend that you use a simple $1 bill because I think it fits the nicest. However, any other American bills will work, yet larger bill numbers for $10, $20, $50, or $100 usually get cut off from the top portion of the ring.
I am aware that I have viewers from other countries who may not have American bills handy, so I quickly explain a way you can make this using regular printer paper. I give the dimensions:
Length: 15.5 cm Width: 6 cm
Also, HERE are the measurements for where you should make the folds on a piece of PAPER. ALL measurements are from the very LEFT side of the paper and indicate where to fold as instructed in the video. NOTE THAT THESE MEASUREMENTS MAY NOT FIT YOU OR WORK PERFECTLY** Please experiment with your paper, this is only to get a general idea.
First fold (left "border" of 1) - 0.25" or about 7mm
Second fold (right "border" of 1) - about 1" or 2.5 cm
Third (between O and F) - 3.75" or 9.5 cm - remember this is where the BOTTOM edge of the paper should be as demonstrated in the video*
