Money or Clothes

by Sherry Riter in Art  


Some people love to have clothes and some people just love to hang onto their money. However, I have found a way to have clothes and have money! It isn’t exactly the kind of clothes that can be worn, but it is fun nonetheless.

Does it look a little different? Well, that is because this jacket is made from a dollar bill with a method called origami. This paper folding technique is a traditional folk art method that became popular in the mid-1900’s. To create origami objects, a flat piece of a paper is folded without any cutting or gluing to create objects into intricate designs.

So what do you think? Do you think you have enough patience to create origami designs?

Beautiful ! But you know what, I would rather do it on someone else's dollar bills 😉 About the patience…The lesser I talk about it, the better 😛

Is it bad that I would rather just save or spend the money? But yeah, no patience either to do something like that…I'm not a crafty person at all, unfortunately…

My Aunt and Uncle actually did this for me as a wedding present.

While we did register for those who really don't like giving cash, we had asked for money as gifts as we wanted to gut and remodel our kitchen.

My Aunt is very much a "personal touch presents" kind of person. So she gave us cash, but folded as above into a little man and a little woman. It was lovely.

Not enough patience to create, but plenty of patience to appreciate! Those are cool!

Wow, those are rad! I really love the fish one the most.

Those are awesome.
I would have the patience to do them-if I got a cash reward that was deposited directly into my savings if I was successful! 🙂
