Copyright 1998-99 Stephen Hecht. All Rights Reserved A dollar bill produces a model 100mm long with a bloom of 40mm diameter. The bloom is adapted from Herman Lau’s Flower-in-a-Pot. Thatbloom can also be used here, resulting in a shorter stem and a smaller bloom diameter (but with 8 petals, not 6).
1. Valley-crease at quarters. Turn over.
2. Pivot at A,bring B to 1/4 line, marking only at C.
3. Valley-fold and unfold at C.
4. Valley-fold and unfold halfway to C. Turn over.
5. Swing in sides.
6. Swing up on existing crease.
7.Valley and unfold through all layers of the upper flap. Unfold completely. Rotate half turn. Turn over.
8. Valley on existing creases, extending to edges.
9. Use existing valleycreases to squeezein mountain-fold angle bisectors. Repeat on left.
10. Sink hexagonally halfway. (Open out to find landmarks.)
Alternate method, using Lau’s 8-petalled flower: 1. Crease at quarters. 2.Water-bomb base at one end. 3. Squash the 4 triangular flaps of the water-bomb base: two loose flaps in front, two flaps attached to the rest of the bill in back. 4. Octagonally sink tip halfway.
11.Mountain-fold entire top and unfold.

12. Gather up 4 edges perpendicularly.
13. Wrap edges. Reverse below valleyfold(where indicated). Entire bottom of bill swings behind and up.
14. Continue collasping on existing creases.
15. Note that the sunken assembly has remained fixed. Swing one flap to the left.
16. Mountain-fold on existing crease, tucking inside.
17. Swing flap back to the right. Repeat 15-17 on left. Rotate half-turn.
18. Add mountaincreases halfway between existingvalleys. Inner ones don’t have to go all the way up.
19. Crease forwards and backwards. Make the longer fold first, then use it to help locate the shorter.
20 Add more creases. Turn over.
