Origami Bills

The clever folks at Personal Financial Advice blog have come up with Five Great Ways To Leave A Tip ... folding the bills into origami.

My favorite is the spider, but be warned that you risk scaring arachnophobic servers

I would step on that hideous spider, dollar or not. They're my one phobia.

Other than that, way cool! :D

I thought it was illegal to deface us currency in such a way?

BW-That's not defacing, defacing is ripping, tearing, permanently marking, or otherwise rendering it unusable. This isn't rendering it unusable but merely creative folding.
My daughter used to have a tiny frog that was made for her by an older Japanese gentleman, if you pressed the bottom down it hopped! She kept it for years, but has disappeared! To here dissappointment.

nanc: Cool. Is that the son who also loves cats?

brooke: now I know what to get you as a gag gift *evil laugh*

rain: It's also fun to impress children with origami.

bw: I think merry widow is correct. Folding doesn't constitute defacing.

merry: Too bad about your daughter's frog :-(

yes, cube - one and the same - quite perhaps switched in the womb...he's everything we're not - a couple of years ago he made santa and some reindeer orgami.

he's always got some experiment going and he's about to put together an herb garden in order to make homemade remedies. he's a geek - good thing we love geeks at our house.

Nanc-Nancson and I will have to talk when we get up there! If we have purple cone flower, and other things growing wild, we may be able to encourage them and do a few other things...

Very cool. Thanks for the link. I just saw a post not long ago that had a bunch of guns made out of money.

I'd be willing to tackle that tarantula and unravel him just to see if he was made out of Benjamins. :)

Be prepared to receive my dry-cleaning bill. ;)

Raggedy: Origami guns. Cool.

J.D.: That would be one large tip!

brooke: I think it would be worth it... ;-)
