How to Make a Dollar Rosette

Save

A dollar bill rosette is similar to an origami rosette. Since a dollar bill is made of paper, you can fold it as you would an ordinary piece of paper. Making a rosette requires folding the dollar bill in different directions until you end up with a fan-like circle. Dollar bill rosettes are often used to decorate wedding and graduation gifts.

Things You'll Need

  • Dollar bill
  • Fold the bill in half vertically down the middle. The first crease should be down the middle of George Washington's portrait.

  • Take the first flap and fold it inward about 1/2 inch. Continue making an accordion-style fold back and forth until you reach the tip of the bill. Make even folds for a fuller and more defined rosette.

  • Turn the bill over to the unfolded half and repeat Step 2 on the unfolded side until both halves of the bill resemble an accordion.

  • Hold the pleats flat. Fold the accordion in half down the middle. Line up the ends so the fold is directly in the middle of the bill.

  • Join the ends of the pleats together on one side of the rosette and fold at a 45-degree angle. Press the fold firmly for a good crease. Fold the ends over a second time at a steeper angle and crease it well.

  • Open the dollar rosette on the other end and pull it together.

  • Repeat Steps 5 and 6 on the other side of the rosette to hold it open.
