Won Park folds these beauties from dollar bills.





I think it is time I expand my origami repertoire from its two-item (Flying Bird&Heart) state ...

These are beautiful ... and must be tiny! Dollar bills aren't that big.

stephanie - Aren't they beautiful? I think some of them are two-dollar bills - is that larger than a one-dollar bill?

what a great discovery! That fish is stunning!
Happy New year Anairam; I've thought of you everytime my kids played with the tree decoration birds... :)

that fish is so amazing. they're all incredible, but the fish is really my favorite. if all my money looked like this, i'd have more of it - who would want to spend a single fish?!

Anairam said...

esti - And a Happy New Year to you too, Esti! I am glad your kids enjoyed the paper birds!

up and down town - My choice is also definitely the fish - it is beautiful!

All bills are the same size- it can be confusing sometimes...

That is a lot of money. What a surprise for me that peoples use the money for toys! For myself I think it is better to save the money or buy the food. That is what The Great Karl Marx did say. In Russia we desire very much those dollars.

Bored? Too clumsy for origami? Try this: The maximum number of times a sheet of paper has ever been folded in half repeatedly, is...12 times.
To fold a strip of tissue paper 0.01 mm thick in half 12 times, you need a strip of length about 88metres. There is a formula relating length and thickness of paper to number of folds-in-half.

linda sue - Wow, it is amazing that he can fold something quite small so intricately!

svetlana - Oh dear. soon you won't want US dollar bills anymore. I think you should put your roubles in South African Rands! Okay, maybe not ...

anony-mouse - This is precisely why I am so glad to count a Mathematician Mouse amongst my blog friends - you know all these interesting things to do with numbers!
