  1. Place a US dollar bill so that the green side is up. Fold lengthwise into quarters and unfold.
  2. Fold the top corner at a 45 degree angle so the corner meets the quarter crease-mark made above. This forms a small triangle.
  3. Mountain fold the top of the dollar bill using the base of the small triangle as a landmark. Once this is done, you can unfold the small triangle.
