How to fold a shirt out of a bill - Instructions with photos
A shirt can easily be folded with just one note. With the help of this photo tutorial you can fold the money shirt yourself:
Put the bill across from you.
Fold the front edge to the back edge of the euro note.
Unfold the bill again.
Fold the front edge to the just folded center line.
Also fold the back edge of the bill towards the center line.
Turn the bill around.
Fold the bill a little bit (about 1cm) on the left side.
Turn the bill again.
Fold the left front corner diagonally to the midline.
Fold the left rear corner to the center line as well.
Turn the bill around again.
Fold the bill on the right side by about one third. Tighten this edge neatly with your fingernail. It will be important later.
Turn the bill again.
Now it gets a little tricky: Fold the bill from right to left so that the right edge is pushed under the two corners of the collar. Then draw the right edge with your fingernail.
Undo the last fold.
Unfold the bill from the center to the outside. The collar on the left side remains closed.
Now fold the right side of the newly folded line to the left.
Now fold the two outer sides back towards the middle.
Now the sleeves of the banknote shirt are folded. As shown in the picture, fold over the right front part to the front.
Then fold the right rear part to the rear.
Now fold the right part back to the left under the two tips of the shirt collar.
Done is an original shirt from a banknote! At the beginning it looks a bit complicated, but with a little practice succeed after only a few tries the perfect banknote shirts.
