Dollar Bill Flower Module Diagrams

These are pictoral instructions.  They are not 100%, but they are what I’ve cobbled together for the moment.  You will need three or four dollars.  I don’t recommend hell or heaven money as they don’t hold all that well.

 1:  Fold the bill in half lengthwise and fold the corners down as indicated in the picture.

2:  You will unfold the corner tips and use them as a reference line to fold the edge to.  Refer to picture.

3:  Fold the edge back down and repeat on the other side. Refer to second picture (the dollar bill bustier:))

 5:  Fold down the back triangles to match the front.

6:  Fold in half.

7:  Mountain fold along the existing paper edge.  The pic on the right is what the unit looks like when you’ve opened the petal up.

8: You will need three or four completed units.

9:  You slide the tab into the pocket and keep doing that all the way around.

10:  Put finger in each petal and open it up.  The more dollars the thinner the petal is.  The picture below is with four units.

    Thanks a lot. This looks like it will be a big help. I sort of ‘discovered’ you at PCOC and have since seen a lot of your work on the web. It is very impressive. Plus you’re a really nice person.

    Thanks for this. It is just what I was looking for. It looks very nice as the decoration on a package wrapped in brown paper. I used it instead of a bow, and since the gift was a piggy bank, it was very appropriate.
