The only material you need for your heart shaped origami dollar is a crisp one dollar bill!

Here are the easy steps to fold it into a heart:

1. Fold the bottom edge of the dollar bill to the back side about 1/4 inch, or at the top of the words “one dollar.” Make a sharp crease.

2. Then fold it in half – “hamburger bun” fold rather than “hotdog bun”

3.  Open the dollar back up and fold the bottom edge of one half of the dollar to the center fold line.
