We will start on the backside of the bill so that we can have George Washington on the blade of the sword.
Step 1: Fold in half lengthwise to crease it, then unfold it.
Step 2: Next, fold the top and bottom lengthwise to meet the crease.
Step 3: Make the sword point.
Fold the left and right top corners down to form the point of the sword.
Step 4: Fold the edges lengthwise once again.
Step 5: Open the fold just made and flip it over completely.
Step 6: Fold the non-pointed side down to the “E”.
Fold the edge to meet the “E” on the word “ONE” on the bill.
Step 7: Flip it over, and fold the top flap lengthwise to meet the crease.
When you make the fold you will have to squash fold the point that is formed from folding the edges to the crease.
The easiest way to do this is to stick your finger or a pencil in there to make sure it will be flat when squashed.
Step 8: Flip it over and fold the flap underneath up.
Make sure to crease it once folded.
Step 9: Fold both the left and right sides to the edge of the last fold.
You fold the left down and crease it and then open it up to do the same thing on the right side.
Again the whole point of this is to make a crease on both folds then unfold it.
The creases you make will look like an “x” as shown in the next picture.
Step 10: Fold the top down over the sword and crease it.
Once you make the fold and crease it, you then unfold it.
Step 11: Fold the handle in and squash and fold it down.
Start by folding the handle into the crease lengthwise.
You will then have to make sure to squash fold the middle pointed edges to make sure they are flat as you fold it down.
Step 12: Fold the handle back up making and crease.
Make the fold to crease where the handle meets the blade part of the sword.
Step 13: Round the handle by folding it in.
Fold the handle in lengthwise and squash fold the little points that are made.
This part is never gonna look the same twice, you can just shape the handle to your liking.
COMPLETE: That’s it, you now have a finished dollar bill origami sword!
