Here, I’ll show you how to make an origami heart out of a dollar. There are many different patterns out there and this one is sometimes called change of heart. You’ll need a dollar bill or any U.S. paper currency. For this video however I’m going to be using a piece of paper approximately twice the size of a dollar so you can see what's going on more clearly. I want the pink side of this paper to show so I’m going to start by flipping it over. Fold the corner of one end down to form a triangle. Crease and then unfold. Now, fold the other corner down to form a triangle, crease and then unfold. Now, we’ll pinch in the sides and squash it down to form a triangle, just like the water bomb base. And you’ll have to repeat the process on the other side.
If you have trouble pinching in the sides to form the water bomb base, you can flip this over. Fold the sheet back on its self to make a guideline. Now, when you flip back to front you can pinch the sides in a little bit easier. Now we’re going to take this flaps and fold them up and in towards the middle. We’re going to need to squash these flaps down to form a square. I like to use something with a pointed end to help. Now, we’ll take the corners of each of the small squares and fold them in.
When you do this, it kind of looks like a kite and now we’re going to squash these triangles down. Again, I like to use something pointed to help. You’ll need to repeat this process on the three other square parts. Now, we’re going to fold these corners the other way. And here, we’re going to get rid of the white space in the middle. To do this, fold it in half. And then fold one side down. Take one of the pointed ends and pull it backwards down out of the way. And you're almost done. We need to hide this tab on the bottom. This tab is bigger when you use a real dollar. So let’s see it with the real dollar. Now you can simply fold this tab back and hide it out of the way. Or you can be a little fancy and invert the tab. Now, they call this change of heart because once you're done you can stick a quarter inside the center. And there you go. a dollar origami heart.
