1.Place a 1-dollar bill. Take care, George Washington’s must be faced down
2.Fold top corners – right corner and left corner – to the center until they meet on a common line
3. Flip the bill over so that George Washington’s face is facing up.
4. Tuck both ends of the bill under George Washington’s face to create a triangle.
Take four more dollar bills and go over steps 1 and 2. You will get five bill triangles.
5.On the other hand, take another bill of another denomination – we’ll use $10 bills for this example – and fold it lengthwise – in half – so that the crease crosses below nose of Secretary Hamilton’s face. Go over this step 4 times. You will get 5 rectangles.
6.Place the triangle on the rectangle in a central position and join them with scotch tape. Already here you have a unit of your crown. Repeat the same operation 4 more times to create 5 units. Fold back the rectangle of each unit so that it is behind the bill in triangle shape.
7. Now begin to join the units one to another. Just take two units and slide a rectangle inside another rectangle.
8.Glue the triangles together trying not to see the tape. Also glue the rectangles to each other
9.Continue pasting additional units as stated in step 8.
When you have placed the 5 units, connect the 2 ends with scotch tape to close a circle and form the crown. You already have something to give and be loved for the gift.
