Beautiful Origami Art Made Of Dollars by Won Park


As you probably suggested, money origami is a kind of origami that uses paper money to create artistic objects. It is the art of folding paper money into creative designs. Dollar bill origami uses similar techniques to traditional origami. However, the shape and texture of money sometimes require a different set of steps than creating the same design with origami paper. Won Park is a skilled designer from US who experiments with money origami a lot. Let’s take a look at what he has created so far and let’s get inspired by his artistic expression and handcraft skills.

    Cool, the kols are awesome, the way that circle is where the eye of the kol should be…

    • jeprie, 02 October 2010

      Yes, I agree with you. Those kois are awesome. I’ve seen more complex origami on a Japanese TV show, TV champion. Maybe the author should search for more reference on this.

      Please learn English if you are going to post in English.

      • Susan Linda, 04 May 2011

        If this person posted in whatever their native language is, you wouldn’t understand it at all, would you Jay? At least they had something nice to say. (You could learn from that maybe?) The internet allows us to communicate with people all over the world, even if we don’t all write perfectly in every language.

    Absolutely Fantastic! I cannot believe those are all hand made. This is truly a great work of art. I am a big fan of such art. I am also going to give a dollar bill a try today, I doubt ill ever get close.
