Start by folding the dollar directly in half lengthwise.

Rub your finger along the edge to make the center crease.

Open the bill up for the next step.

STEP 2: Bring both edges to the center

Fold the bottom edge to the center and crease the edge.

Repeat the same type of fold with the top edge to the center.

Flatten and crease every edge well.

Starting on the right open edge, fold it over to the middle edge.

Press everything down nice and flat, then open this flap up for the next step.

STEP 5: Match the crease to the edge

After opening the last step, fold the crease that was made to the closed edge.

Once again you will want to crease the edges and press hard to flatten the bill.

STEP 6: Fold one edge to the center line

On the side that was just folded, start bringing over the right side to the center.

You may need to open up and even out the cone that forms to flatten it evenly.

STEP 7: Repeat this step with the other side

Repeat the last steps on the opposite side to evenly mirror the other.

Take some time to straighten and press it down once more.

STEP 8: Finish shaping the dollar bottle
