Moneygami: Not Your Usual Origami
Every kid had a phase when he (or she) was obsessed with the art of paper folding, or origami, as we all call it. Who wouldn’t be? After watching masters – or even those with decent skills – create magic out of mere pieces of paper, anyone would want to be able to do the same thing. Many of us probably have outgrown the origami fascination, but I just discovered a variation that just might awaken that once again: moneygami.
It’s a no brainer, what moneygami is all about. Instead of using just any piece of paper (although there is special paper used for origami), moneygami makes use of real paper money. There is no secret that money of any denomination is highly valued these days, especially with the economic situation all over the world, but I suppose that if you had a bill or so to spare, engaging in moneygami is a worthwhile endeavor. After all, your creations may even fetch more than the bill that was used!
Take a look at this koi that was created out of a one dollar bill, and tell me that isn’t fascinating.
Don’t like fish? How about a spider made from a two dollar bill?
I can only imagine just how much work this little spider took! Now if you are not into animals, this battle tank made out of a two dollar bill might be your thing.
Not to say that those moneygami pieces are not impressive, but these two are the ones that really got my attention.
So what can you say? Do these moneygami make you want to pick up folding paper again? If you think that you need a little more convincing, check out this coverage of moneygami, and gather some inspiration for folding bills of your own currency.
