You can always print yourself a dollar bill from the various pictures that are on the internet, f.e here. Don't try to spend it though :P
So long and keep folding ^_^

I cracked this model from the graphic instructions, I guess two airports in one day give you enough time to discern many things. The model is amazing.

The final model suggests very complex folding but it is actually quite simple. Developing the folding method on the other hand was pure genious (by Fred Rohm I mean).

I just divided the rectangle in 6ths and then pressed slowly as to form the diamonds and then aligned the edges and the diamonds formed themsleves revealing the simple references. I didn't fold it from a dollar bill. Instead I obtained a rectangle with the same proportions using the methods described here: viewtopic.php?t=510&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=dollar+bill&start=0

I even succeded folding it from my local currecny which is shorter and taller than a dollar bill (and cheaper since it is only worth U$0.40) by modifyng the bill using the method mentioned before. I won't have access to a difgital camera until mid next week since as I mentioned before I am travelling. I will post a picture then.

The currency is Colombian Peso and the actual bill is of COP$1.000 which is roughly equivalent to U$0.40

Since it is shorter in lenght and taller in height, you have to fold a part at the top and at the bottom (or just one double the size at any of the borders). This makes the tips of the star to be thick and difficult to fold. The result is not great but still good and I am very proud of myself finding out by myself the reference points.

That looks really nice, I like the way the pattern of the bill comes out on the star, although it looks a bit scary :-)

Agreed. The eye gives it some sinister "feel"

This instructions will allow for a model that does not lock. After you've mastered them, you can leave a short fringe on the side, do the folding sequence and then unwrap the fringe and lock the model. Try first with a rectangle with the same proportions of a dollar bill. The instructions for such rectangle are somewhere up this same topic.

- Divide the rectangle in half along the shor side. Unfold
- Divide the rectangle in 3rds along the long side
- Divide the thirds in 6ths
- Crease diagonaly from the left top corner to the bottom of the second vertical crease from the right. Unfold
- Crease from the end of previous crease to the center of the right edge of rectangle
- Crease diagonaly from the left bottom corner to the top of the second vertical crease from the right
- Crease from the end of previous crease to the center of the right edge of rectangle
- Repeat the previous steps with the corners of the right hand side edge
Now you have rhombuses all along the rectangle. You need the diamonds.
- Crease from the bottom of the rhombus on the first vertical crease from right to left, to the top right edge of the rectangle, but stop at the middle of the rectangle. Complete the diamond folding the other 3 creases with the same inclination as this one.
- Repeat for the rhombuses at the 3rd and 5th vertical creases.

The above procedure will give you the necessary creases. From then on you can follow the photographs mentioned before on the thread
