I have always wanted to make a shirt and tie out of money…here is how you can make one too…
Firstly, you need to make your £10 note similar proportions to an American dollar bill, so fold 5mm off the side of your note (see photo above). This fold should be kept folded all through this project. It doesn't make any difference to the feel or shape of the final shirt and tie as the fold ends up in the middle.
Now fold the whole thing in half and undo it to reveal the central crease.
Fold two triangles in from each side into the middle in a similar way to how you make a paper aeroplane.
Fold the large triangle end over.
I have used a pen so you can see my tie, but you should use a pencil as it is much less obvious.
Now open it out to reveal the tie lines.
Fold the tie in half so the lines you drew are touching which will make the top left hand section of the note now lift up.
Squash the left side down making a new fold.
For clarification I shall refer to these two creases as top and bottom creases in the remaining instructions.
Open your folds out, locate the bottom shoulder crease (my finger is pointing to it) and line it up with the top of the tie. Once you have done this crease it into place.
This will create slightly titled shoulders and the shirt can be tucked under the tie.
Fold up 5mm of the other end of the note.
We are now creating the collar.
Fold the bottom two corners up at an angle. You will immediately see that this has created a collar.
Fold up the bottom so the top of the collar almost reaches the bottom of the neck tie (2mm gap).
Gently pull from the middle of this crease the edge of the note out and fold into place.
Do this on both sides to reveal the sleeves of the shirt.
Congratulations…you have made a shirt and tie to wow anyone!
Why not use this as an exciting way to give to someone for their birthday, to leave as an interesting tip in a restaurant or just to entertain small children!
