Money Crab

If you want to gift money, don't just stuff a bill into an envelope, instead fold it into a cute little crab...

... or a dolphin. It's called origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. Looks very challenging to me -and you're supposed to only use one bill!

But if he can do origami, I can do origami.

  1. I've done the shirt, the butterfly and a few easy ones. I looked it up on the net the instructions. Fun to do! And it was all about getting a coworker to take money back for buying me a coffee.

  2. maya !

    ha ha YOU ARE THE BEST !

  3. Now that's the kid of crabs I'd like to find the next time I go to the beach!

    Last year I received a beautiful box filled with origami supplies. I read the book, but was definitely confused. I need to see if they have one called Origami For Dummies.

    But, the box looks real pretty sitting there!

  4. my husband folds tip money at restuarants,
    this one would be a challange and soooo fun
    to recieve :)

  5. He probably didn't ACTUALLY fold it himself.

  6. Adorable. My son had a small origami obsession when he was little. We wound up with folded cockroaches and dragons and African masks. I still have bags of it:). I think it would be cute in a beach house to line the fireplace with origami sea creatures...

  7. Clever. It may be child's play, but I fear I might be all thumbs. Good point about GW. It might not be so difficult after all.



  8. The look on his face, so befuddled almost, is just hysterical!

  9. It's like the way they fold your beach towel or t-shirt & leave it on the bed on a cruise shop or at a resort... never made the "origami" connection before, but that's exactly what it is :-)


  10. I would love lots of crabs like that!

  11. It's my dad's 85th tomorrow and I'm thinking a crab like this would be more fun than a boring card! I've tried before but am not very adept. My family laughed at my napkin folding attempts, and that was just fan/swan things...

  12. Interesting idea...

    That is really so cool, I have always loved origami. I think this was George just before the shoe came flying at his head.

  14. This is just a 'great' post ... my grandson is turning 13 next week. Can you guess what I will be attempting? You are right, if W can do it, I can do it.

  15. Wow! That is impressive!

  16. You can do it, I know you can! :) I want to learn to make that crab, very impressive. Especially if George can do it. Ha ha.
