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, Won Park creates life-like shapes inspired by objects living and not– both in stunning detail.

    To those wondering about diagrams:

    Won Park has published two books, Dollar Origami and Extreme Origami. You can find both at Amazon. There are also diagrams for three of his models in Dollar Bill Origami by John Montroll. Finally, there are a few diagrams of his designs available for free on the Origami Resource Center’s website: http://www.origami-resource-center.com/dollar-bill.html

    Happy folding!

    could you give instructions on how to do the two dollar chinese dragon? i would like to make it for my son as a graduation present because he was born in the year of the dragon. thank you.

  • Jenna Major

    I am extremely fascinated by origami paper folding. I started making them around February when I stumbled upon them while
    researching one of my favorite designers, Josef Albers. Now these little
    representational hypars are everywhere and I can’t stop making them. I
    love it when math and art can cross paths. Bankruptcy Attorney San Antonio
