There was a modest collection of folded dollar bills on display, mostly gifts from friends, and the regulars would bring in their friends and relatives specifically to see that case. For several years, we also demonstrated origami at the Topsfield Fair, just north of Boston, and despite magnificent origami works on display, there would be an inordinate fascination with origaml from dollar bllls. There are sevcral reasons dollar bill origami modcls are so popular: o Folding ths durable paper is nondcetructlve, and even if you don't give it as a gift or tip, you can reuse it or spend it. . The engraving patterns and symbols are intricate, beautiful and interesting, and can be incorporated cleverly into hundreds of designs. . Of all the paper money in use around the world, the US Dollar bills are relatively inexpensive, and are readily available. . Often when you have time to kill, unexpectedly waiting for something or someone, there is no other folding paper available. o Every project has guaranteed value! For many people, dollar bill models were some of the first origami they learned, thanks to the early work of Florence Temko, a prolific origami designer, author, teacher, performer, and mentor to many other origami professionals in Great Britain and the USA. ln fact, this book began as an idea for a collection of early models chosen by Joyce Saler, a dear friend, and an advanced origami enthusiast from Concord, Massachusetts, who confided that she found the most enjoyment from a few, simple origami models she learned many years ago-models that children could remember easily. Your local bank is the source for crisp, clean, new dollar bills-if you ask. For hygiene's sake, you will want to use brand new bills whenever using money to decorate your table (napkin rings, place holders, etc.). Since most paper currency is made from long, strong fibers, you often can wash, dry, and gently iron circulated bills to make them crisp and cJean, but they will never look quite as nice as newly printed currency. To delve deeper into the world of money origami, explore the works of Stephen Weiss of Florida, John Montroll of Maryland, Marc Sky of New Jersey, and Won Park, and Jodi Fukumoto of Hawaii. We trust that this book will help you to more thoroughly enjoy the contents of your wallet. These tokens have inherent value, and whether the recipient cherishes the gift, or simply unfolds and spends it, you know it won't be thrown away!
