Lately, prompted subliminally by a conversation on the O-list, I have been folding money. I never really cared for money folding before, and I can’t say that this represents a change in my folding focus, but there’s something really fascinating in folding unique objects out of such a common, ubiquitous item.
Folded last night, here’s a design based on a puff star tessellation:
And a few days ago, I folded this design- two octagonal negative space stars, with radial kite shapes:
It conveniently holds two half-dollar coins quite precisely in the “negative space” in the center.
I’ll probably bring both of these to the convention, although I haven’t figured out a display method yet- I’m a little worried that someone will just swipe the dollar bills off the table. Anyone with money-folding + convention experience willing to give me a suggestion on display methodology for such things?
