Trick to turn dollar bill into ring by AOM.

Having a variety of pranks and jokes that will astonish and amuse your nieces and nephews is an important aspect of being an outstanding uncle. So, from time to time, we’ll give you present and future uncles a lesson on some jokes that will make them think you’re the greatest person on the planet. Take a look at our whole collection of Cool Uncle Tricks. 

One of the most important qualities of a cool uncle is the ability to conjure up laughter out of thin air. A cool uncle’s repertoire includes made-up games, amusing jokes, and amazing tales. Making a ring out of a $1 note is a great illustration of this; it transforms an ordinary item into something startlingly fresh and wearable.

Make sure your early folds are as precise as possible while making your ring. Sloppy effort in the start will only lead to a ring that will not hold together. For the challenging last fold, all you’ll need is a pen, flathead screwdriver, or other poking device. Otherwise, all you’ll need is a buck and a crowd.

Pay great attention to each step, especially the photographs, which will serve as virtually better descriptions than the words. 

One American dollar with upper side marked.

Fold the top edge of the bill over and away from you, backside up. Fold the bill in half where the green meets the white at the top. (Even though you’re going to flip the bill over, it’s simpler to complete this step from the back because you can see the line better; if you fold towards you from the front, it’s difficult to see the line to fold on.)

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you roll a dollar bill into a ring?

A: Fold the bill in half so it is now a triangle. Take one of the corners, and fold that corner up to create a crease (like an old fashioned handkerchief). Keep folding this side until you get to the other end where there is no more paper.

How do you do a magic trick with a dollar bill?

A: You fold it into a cube and then riffle the corners to transform it into a bird.

How do you make a dollar bill origami ring?

A: Youre going to want an origami ring that has a square or rectangular base, and youll also need two dollar bills. If the bill is only slightly larger than the width of your finger, it should be fine if you make both folds in opposite directions — one at around 2/3 of the way down from each end.
