Introducing the art of moneygami, where origami meets paper money.

YOUR PARENTS MAY HAVE TOLD YOU that money isn’t everything, but you sure can do a lot of stuff with it. Like spending millions of it while 99% of the population is angry at your doorstep, or folding it into different shapes to create awesome art.

Origami is the traditional art of paper folding into various styles and shapes. The word comes from Japanese, meaning to fold (oru) paper (kami). Moneygami is origami made using one or two bills; although personally, I think the name would have made more sense if it was orimoney.

Here are 20 examples of paper money folding so awesome you’ll never want to spend these bills again.
