What better way to say I have money than by making your clothes out of money. My name is Robert Segundo and today I'm going to teach you how to make a bowtie out of money. What we're going to do is, we're going to start off with a dollar bill, but if you're a high roller you'd use a Ben Franklin instead of my George Washington here. What we're going to do is, we're going to take him and going to fold him over like this and half like so, what we're going to is take it and fold it half once again, like this. Now what we're going to do take the point, the closed point here and fold it over into a triangle like so. Now what we're going to do is we're going to open this up and this is going to be the tricky part, because you see, you have your diamond here. Let's actually do it on the face side up, what we're going to do is we're going to take, basically going to fold this piece in, like so and then wrap this one using our triangle pieces, we're going to just kind of wrap that over it, like so, there you go. Now what you're going to do is you're going to take your little triangle piece and fold it up, you're going to take it, you're going to open it up and you're going to squash fold it like so and then what you're going to do is at the open end you're going to take it and do a petal fold, which this is really small and tedious to do. So you're going to open it, it's going to take you a little bit to do this. So you're going to be able to show people that you have lots of money and lots of patience. Basically you're going to petal fold it, when you're done petal folding it. Get rid of that one, I already got one pre-done here. It's going to look like this guy here. So now what we're going to do is we're going to take our dollar bill and we're going to fold this leg over, like so, into the center like so. We're just going to pre-crease it and then what we're going to do is we're going to open this up and this is called reverse syncing it, like so. Now taking it to work with it and get it to open up and play nice, there you go and then do the other side as well. Fold it over, sync it, and reverse sync it, like so. Then what you're going to do is you're going to flip the sides over, now make sure you petal fold it on both sides, I've done both sides here. You're going to fold it over like this to the flat side and you're going to open it up and what you're going to have left is this point here and what you've got to do is you've got to squish this point down, which I've already done here. There you have it, your dollar bill bowtie, wear your money and be proud.
