Introduction Money origami is more popular than ever, thanks to the panoply of designs and the wonderful folding quality of the dollar bill. Many people like to give cash gifts or tips in folded money. While the classic folds still fascinate, money-fold enthusiasts are always looking for fresh ideas. Therefore, we’re pleased to offer this unique collection, and we hope you will get a kick out of these delightful new models. This kit also debuts our ingenious new Three- Dollar Bird Base (page 6) that you may use as a launching pad for your own financial fiddling. Our first Money Origami kit was our response to a glut of books on the market that were just too complicated. The folks at Tuttle Publishing allowed us to include video lessons on a disc, enabling scores of beginners to find folding success. Naturally, we have included video lessons with this kit, as well. We recommend that you first watch the selected lesson all the way through once or twice, without trying to fold along. When you are ready to fold along with the video demonstration, use the pause button to stop the lesson while you copy each fold. Repeat as needed in order to accomplish any folding sequence that is difficult for you. Enjoy this Mini Money Origami treat while we work up the next set of fun folds, and remember: if you spend money without folding it first, you haven’t gotten the full enjoyment from your hard-earned cash! We hope you enjoy the original origami butterfly designs presented in this kit!
