One Dollar Butterfly by orudorumagi11 One Dollar Butterfly by orudorumagi11
Here is a better picture of my butterfly.

This butterfly is about two inches wide from wingtip to wingtip
and is made from only one dollar.

All my works are original designs.

They all use dollar bills with no cuts, no glue, and no tape.

That really cool, may I ask how you did that?
Gadgetsmith Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I have no doubt that you have been asked this before, but would you happen to have instructions for this?
orudorumagi11 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2009
Yes I do, my friend and mentor John Montroll has that design and two more of my designs in his book.
The book is called "Dollar bill Origami"

You can buy one here:

Or your local book store if the have it in stock.

I don't suppose toilet would be in there as well, would it?
orudorumagi11 Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2009
Sorry, no it is not.

The other two models are, Eagle and Dragonfly.
Gadgetsmith Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I've no doubt that you hear this a lot, but you should offer instructions for your art... Although, I understand how much of a pain that would be.

If you don't watch out, your dollar will fly away :butterfly:

This is amazing! Do you makes these for the fun of it, for friends, or sell them?
orudorumagi11 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2009
I sell them too.
The Butterfly cost $20.00 to make one for you.
Would you like to have one for yourself?
Muggle-Angel Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2009
I'm currently broke... I quit my job almost three-years-ago, do to a family emergency. Since then, I've been living with my parents.... My Mom somtimes gives me money as a thank you, it kind of makes me feel like a mooch. I think I've got about $10.00. The next time one of my parents does that, I'll get a hold of you... I know my sister would love one of you butterfies, so if all gos well, then I could buy it as a birthdy gift for her...If it takes me a while to get back to you, don't worry, because my Mom usually gives me $10-$20, once a month for the help I give.... Sorry about the rambling! :)

Wow its beutiful!
ABRZA Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2008
Oh wow. What a small world. I have this book, my mom bought it for me a couple of years ago, and the first thing I did was this butterfly; which I still have. Actually it's hanging right here next to my desk. It's amazing the work you do and it's the coolest origami I've ever folded, though I remember doing the creases on the edge of the wings was difficult. x)
usagi13 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2008
wow thats awsome~!
in-version Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2008

orudorumagi11 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2008
I tried on ebay, but nobody wanted one.
in-version Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2008

Wow... how the heck can you do that? This is very beautiful!!!
Oragami is fun, except when you get a papercut from getting frustrated. :D

How do you think of and make your designs?
daehttub Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2007

orudorumagi11 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2007
This model is featured in John Montroll's book "Dollar Bill Origami" along with my Dragonfly and Eagle. If you get a copy of that book you can make one for yourself.

Have fun.

This would look cooler with Canadian money... perhaps a purple $10 bill ;)
Spiegel666 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2007
Purple? Neat... you couldn't do it with Australian money- it's plastic, and doesn't fold very well. My dad used to be able to make a peacock from a ten dollar note, though (they were purple too).
