    Posted by  ·  June 10, 2018

    A money origami shirt is a great way to give a little cash in shirt form. 

    This creative money giving gift will surprise your man and make him smile on Father’s Day (or any occasion). Write a little note letting him know what the cash should be used for. Easy. Creative. Fun. You might also like these creative ways to give money or an origami money tree. This origami gift card holder would also make a great presentation for a gift card.

    Here it starts with plain ole money. Simple. Boring. Now let’s turn this into a creative money gift!


    1. Fold each edge to the center.

    2. Fold the white tips of the bill under.

    3. Fold the corners to the center as shown.

    4. Divide the bill into thirds. It should tuck under the collar.

    5. Before tucking under the collar, at the third fold line bring out the edge and make a squash fold on each side.

    6. Tuck the end under the collar and you have a money origami shirt!

    Wouldn’t it be fun to have lots and lots of money shirts tucked into a card? Like fifty-one dollar bills? {you’d better start now}

    To make this an extra special Father’s Day gift make a homemade card and insert a money origami shirt.

      I remember I used to make these money t-shirts back in elementary school! I don't know why but money is so much cooler as a t-shirt :)
