This may just become your favorite go-to money origami gift idea. Folding money into shapes, like a heart is pretty common.  But this way is the fastest dollar bill origami heart out there. My video takes way longer to explain than do. You’ve heard of 5 minute crafts.  This is like 30 second money origami. There are less than 10 folds! So super easy to throw in a Valentines Card last minute if you forgot to get something for the kids (Not saying I have done that, but it does work pretty good)  So without further ado here are the money heart origami instructions.

I Heart Money

This heart origami is a great shape to fold very quick for a money gift.  You could make it fance with lots of them out of one-dollar bills and put them in a cute box.  But like have said before, I started folding money because I don’t do all that fancy packaging.  So fold the heart, stick in a card and move on.

Now if you are opposed to handing out candy at Valentine’s you could always give a dollar bill origami heart to everyone.   Yeah, that could get kinda expensive. I recommend doing that only for people you are close to. My college student could go for a money heart anytime but it’s a fun Valentine’s origami craft activity.   Plus I’d probably just tell my college student to watch these origami instructions and fold her own (I’d probably still supply the bill).

Now a few rules about money folding. Don’t rip, glue or tear the money.  Cash is considered legal tender and you have to treat it as such. Sometimes things rip accidentally and that is life, but never rip money on purpose.  (Unless you want to be sad you have currency that won’t be accepted anywhere)
