This would be cute to give your kids, or to use as prizes at a Halloween party.

It would also be fun to scatter a few into a centerpiece on your table, or use at place settings.

How to Make a Dollar Bill Skull.

1. Fold the dollar bill in half at one end and crease the center, just at the end.

2. Open the bill and lay vertically face up, with the top of Washington’s head at your right.

3. Fold the top right corner in to the center and crease sharply.

6. Fold one side in on the bottom mark, diagonally up to the edge at the top. Crease.

Fold the other side in the same way, using the mark for the bottom part of the fold. Crease.

8. Measure 3/8 inch from the fold you just made, and fold the bill back down, making a small pleat.

9. Turn the bill so Washington is face down. Measure down 1/2 inch from the fold and fold the bottom part of the bill back behind the skull’s head.

The side that says ONE will be the front of the skull.

Go back over all the folds and crease really well one more time.

10. Make the features for the skull.

Use the black foam to make 2 eye sockets and a nose hole.

Draw a 2 inch wide by 1 inch high rectangle on the white paper.

Sketch in some teeth and darken them with a black pen. Cut out.

11. Use a bit of double sided tape to attach the features to the skull as shown.

Place the dollar bill skull inside a small ziplock bag to protect the features when you present it.

Dollar bill origami is a fun way to present gifts.

Tips.

I used a bit of double sided tape to hold the fold down just above the teeth.
