Along with all the other crazy things Japanese do, they also make Origami art. As you probably already know, it is the traditional Japanese folk art of paper folding which started somewhere in the 17th century. However because paper decomposes rapidly, there is very little direct evidence of its age or origins.

Origami became popular again in the middle of the 1900’s and since then evolved into a modern art form. Of course the world’s most famous origami artist must be Michael from “Prison Break” and his famous paper crane. [Read more...]

Almost any laminar material can be used for folding, but usually it’s a plain paper. However, as we (humans and pandas) are very creative, it was not long before paper money became a popular material to create origami with; this is known variously as Dollar Origami, Orikane, and Money Origami. [1] The use of cuts or glue are not considered to be in this art.

Now let’s take a look at 21 creative examples of money origami. Which one do you like best?
