Some of you that know me, know that I LOVE origami. If there's a piece of paper around, I'm never bored. :) Anyway I was thinking about Valentine's day and decided to see if I could make a flower with money instead of paper. When cold hard cash is the perfect present for that someone here's a way to make it less "cold" and "hard". :):)
Here's how to do it:
-First make the stem (here are the instructions from Nick jr. I just had to tweak it a bit to use a bill)
fold the bill in half
Take one end and fold it down:
fold up flap:
tuck in extra flap and fold in half: (hopefully the pictures are more helpful then my instructions :)
fold up the bottom to make the leaf:
DONE! Now follow these easy instructions from Nick Jr. to make the blossom.
You may have to play around with the size of paper that you use for it. I used a square that could fit on a CD:
When your done cut off the tip so that you can push the stem through:
Put this baby in a card and you have a nice valentine, or gift...with or without using money as the stem. :).
