How to Fold a Dollar Bill Into a Frog
Let’s start with a nice straight bill and on the front side.
STEP 1: Fold the bill in half from left to right and crease
You can unfold it after you have pressed the edge of the fold well.
STEP 2: Fold both halves from the bottom up to meet the middle edge
Fold the left and right bottom edges up to meet the middle line.
STEP 3: Flip over, and fold the top flaps down over the bill
After folding the flaps over and creasing the folds, unfold it all except for the flaps as shown.
STEP 4: Now fold the tops down to meet the middle line
Bring the left and right edges down to the bottom of the bill.
You can put the flaps over the bottom edge to make the creases.
Then unfold it once again like before.
STEP 5: Fold the flap corner tips inward and flip over the bill
Make four folds on the corners of the flaps.
Matching the folded edges to the creases underneath will help keep them even and straight.
STEP 6: Bring the left and right sides both in to meet the middle line
After flipping over the bill, fold the outer edges to meet directly at the center.
After creasing the edges, unfold it once more.
STEP 7: Fold each half into a triangle as shown by pinching the sides
Fold the triangle halves by pushing down in the middle where the lines meet and by squeezing the sides.
Be sure to tuck the previous flaps into the fold.
STEP 8: Fold the four tips from the middle to the other line as shown
Fold all four corners in half along the outer edges evenly.
Press the edges firmly with all these folds to help keep everything even and flat.
STEP 9: Fold all four middle flaps in half
Fold each of these four flaps in half outward from where they meet.
STEP 10: Push the four flaps together to meet in the middle
Fold the flaps together in the middle on both sides.
STEP 11: Push the legs one way and fold down the bigger side of the triangle
Use the picture as a guide to fold the edge down as shown.
STEP 12: Fold the legs over your last fold and do the same fold on the other side
Cover both folds by opening the legs bag up as shown.
STEP 13: Fold the bottom up to the middle, then once more
You will know you make the second fold correctly if the legs align, as shown in the right picture.
Make sure to crease after each fold.
STEP 14: Fold the edge of your last one down to meet the bottom
Crease it the best you can and flip it over.
It may need some manual straightening, but you now have your own dollar bill origami frog!
