  1. I have never see a origami house before you did an awesome job!!! and the tutorial was very good too. I'm going to make one for my mother, but I'm going to try it with two, 2 dollar bills… thank you.

  2. Okay i live in Holland and we have 2 euro's and no 2 euro Bill's. But want look closer to this Bill illuminati CONFIRMED

  3. I should be making dollars in real estate but instead I'm making real estate with dollars. Very easy to follow instructions and works great with real dollar bills

  4. awesome design loved making it the only part that was hard for was to make the roof sit on the house so i used tape

  5. This is awesome! I appreciated that you used a larger print-out so we could easily see the small folds. Thanks so much!

  6. I folded this as instructed and the roof didn't fit. It seems as if the bottom of the house was wider than the roof. I'll practice some more.
