Yay! Once you get the hang of folding the tabs it's easy (:

Got it!

@Cat Nelson: It's okay if the two tabs on a square aren't symmetrical because the two folds make one tab. Mine weren't perfect either (:

A crisp new one makes it easier, especially on the part where you make the tabs.

Is it better to use a crisp new bill or a soft older one?

Cynthia Bailey 11 months ago

My problem is the middle when you fold the mini squares to make the tabs. I can't seem to get them symmetrical.

Cat Nelson 11 months ago

Hopefully!

I've tried twice now and I'm still having trouble. Third times a charm maybe :)

Cat Nelson 11 months ago

Yeah, it's hard at first but after you get used to it it's easy! I'm glad you got it though (:

(author) 11 months ago

I had a hard time folding the middle part where the quarter goes..but I got it :)
