    Its so cute! I put a 2 dollared Canada coin instead but it might not work since you wrote, "* requires 500.000 money cats with 1 dollar coin each" heh and i don't have time to make 500.000 money cats XD

  51. arxsyn says:

    I really like this design and idea behind it. When I make mine, I will decorate the face with eyes and whiskers, and possibly a nose. I'm sure the outcome would be super kawaii! Thanks for the money neko cat, nyaa!

  75. hana is tired says:

    omg, how did mine end up coming out 1,000 times worse than yours…

  76. Stephen McDermott says:

    good video, thank you. one complaint? is that using a dollar-copy that's white on the back is a bit confusing … dollars also fold a bit differently, why not use a real dollar for the video? but it's a good clear video and I really appreciate it … I'm using it to make a gift

  77. ShootBigBucks Gaming says:

    terrible tutorial

  78. Bete Verri says:

    ai como estou precisando

  79. Wes Robertson says:

    I tried so hard to make her cat! It didn't word out well…

  80. Sergey Yurkov says:

    If you had trouble with any of the steps, here is a quick tip: click on the 'gear' icon and set playback speed to 0.25. This way the video slows down and you will be able to make out all the details of some really complex folds better.

    Tip B: to make ear folding easier, fold on either sides, to the front and back, and not just to the front. This way you create additional creases to aid inward folding.

    Thank you for the tutorial, Jo.

  81. Yo 21 says:

    you know it's illegal to print money, according to my parent's friend.

  82. Anna Blake says:

    So hard I started to cry because of frustration! And he's cheating it's waayyyyy harder to do with REAL money!!!👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

  83. Camry B says:

    to those saying it is impossible to create with a us dollar, it is not. sure, mine came out a little lopsided and can't stand up, but it still looks adorable and can hold a silver/gold dollar.
    keep practicing, persistence is key with origami. i love the video!!!

  84. Phallic Questionar HD says:


  85. Natalie Rivera says:

    I just made mine and put a euro in it…SO CUTE!!!

  86. me myself says:

    I am really upset! I don't get how to do it! And its making me have an enxiaty attack! I know its not your fault but when I get upset then I am upset with every one! But its really not your fault so I'll change the thumbs down that I just did, to a thumbs up! Your awesome and I'm not upset at you its just that I had to let out my frustration somehow! But really thanks for the video! And I'm sorry for being upset with you!
