Dollar Bill Origami

There are quite a few money origami books out on the market and it’s hard to choose which is the right one for you. It depends on what you are looking for:
– something fun and easy?
– a book that has many models?
– a book intended as a gift for a child?

Here’s my two cents about The Buck Book by Anne A Johnson.

I really enjoyed this book because the instructions are very clear, the models are easy to make, and most important, it is written with a friendly and fun voice. Scattered throughout the book are tidbits of information regarding paper money which I found to be a nice addition.

Although the book is 80+ pages long, it only has 7 models which are:

    – Buffalo Bill Badge (easy)
    – Bow Tie (medium)
    – Dollar Ring (medium)
    – Dime-In-ring (as opposed to Diamond Ring!)
    – Jumping Frog (a classic model)
    – Elephant (getting harder to fold)
    – and Peacock (somewhat difficult because dollar bills are small and the paper gets thick).

All in all, I would say that I enjoyed the book. Those who are familiar with origami may find it easy – though, it is fun and it would be a joy to have it grace your bookshelf. I would definitely recommend it as a gift for a child or to a budding origami enthusiast.
