U.S. Capitol building Made wilth dollar bills by orudorumagi11 U.S. Capitol building Made wilth dollar bills by orudorumagi11
This model was made for a client who put it on a cover of a book.

All the bills were folded and had to be glued into place.

I would consider this more of an origami/ papercraft model than true Origami.

I had to do it this way because it is what the client asked for.

Hope you like it.

BTW, the center bill in the dome is a 50 dollar bill.

Update:
Thank you everyone for all your comments.
Here are answers to some questions,

Total amount of bills, 51 bills total, 50 $1.00 bills and a single $50.00 bill.
Total value of $100.00

The title of the book is called "Republic, Lost"
by Lawrence Lessig

If I commissioned you, would I get to keep the dollar origami thing or would I only get a picture? Also, is there any place I can go to for information about commissions?
