Money Origami Turkey

I realize that Thanksgiving isn’t traditionally about giving gifts, but all the same I wanted to share this money origami turkey.  It’s pretty easy to fold and it’s a fun way to give cash –if venmo hasn’t removed your use of cash permanently. —  I saw this fold originally as an origami peacock.  But obviously I liked the idea of making it as a Thanksgiving dollar origami turkey.

What you’ll need to fold this dollar origami turkey:

  • video above
  • 1 US currency bill  any denomination
  • a little bit of patience
  • a pencil to poke the tiny corners and press folds when needed

This is probably the most reasonable question you can ask.  So I thought up a couple of uses for this that I think are useful for Thanksgiving day:

  • use them as prizes for a Thanksgiving Game
  • pay back whoever bought the pies you should have brought to dinner
  • if you have grandkids give them a turkey if they can share something they are truly grateful for
  • bet on the Thanksgiving Football game of your choice.
  • Get 100 $1 bills and have the family fold them to donate to a charity that helps those less fortunate than you
  • start a tradition of giving Thanksgiving presents (why not we black friday shop that day anyway)
