Origami by Won Park

I received these from a friend in an email and wanted to share them.
How fun would it be to take these to the bank and pull them out at the teller window? I've heard bills referred to as "folding money," but this is crazy!

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding.The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper.
Won Park  is the master of Origami.  He is also called the "money folder", a practitioner of origami whose canvas is the United States One Dollar Bill.
Bending, twisting, and folding, he creates life-like shapes in stunning detail.



  1. This is so creative. I love it. I once folded and rolled $1 bills into a bed because my granddaughter wanted money towards a bed for her birthday. I think my son has a picture of it somewhere. It wasn't as finely done as these though. Thanks for this treat.

  2. Those are so cool! It would be a shame to unfold and spend them. (But I would. Ha!)

  3. Those are cool and so creative, love them! Good to see you back, Christella! Hope you had a good holiday and that your new year is off to a good start!


  4. Those are amazing! My husband loves the Japanese culture and we have some Japanese block prints in our house. He also has many bonsai trees. Origami would be fun to learn!
