Money Origami Shirt Instructions

Fold a Money Origami Shirt with step-by-step instructions. A money shirt makes a cute way to give a cash gift or leave a tip :-)

Here I'll show you the easiest way I've found of folding a dollar bill shirt. There are a few different ways I've seen, and this one is the most straightforward.

You can also fold an origami shirt out of regular paper - just start with a sheet of paper that's about twice as long as it is wide. I've seen people make some really neat homemade Father's Day cards with a folded paper shirt on the front. And we've got lots of great father's day quotes, messages, and poems to help you write a great card to your Dad.

For a grandson

Reader Mary shares her story:

"I wanted to share this gift I made with you since it was your section on Origami that gave me the idea. My oldest grandson will be 13 in Jan and it's always a challenge to think of a gift for a boy that age. We were going to give him a gift certificate until I took your suggestion that cash would be better.

"I took a one dollar bill and made the "shirt" which came out absolutely adorable. Then I made the " heart " using a $20.00 bill. He will be getting two cards. The first one says "Open me first" and on the front it reads, "We were going to buy you clothes..." On the inside I put the "Shirt" (I stuck it by using a tiny bit of poster putty on the back of it) and wrote "But we didn't know what style you like"

"Then on the next card I attached the "heart" and wrote, "So we decided to give you our HEART instead!!!" I think this will be a great hit with him. Thanks again for a great website with so many wonderful ideas and to all the readers who share theirs!""

Update: "I gave my grandson his present - he thought it was so cool and went around the room showing everyone! When he realized the heart was a $20.00, he was thrilled."
