$8 Flying Disc (dollar bill origami)

Video showing how the discs spin when thrown.

$8 is all you need to create this flying disc. I like this one because you can play with the pattern a little based on how you fold the bills. This disc puffs out around the edges and reminds me of a Crunchwrap Supreme from Taco Bell. It flies amazingly far and is fun to play catch with.

Insert one bill into another by opening the flaps on the left one and putting the right one inside. Follow the picture for proper alignment.

Tuck the flaps from the left bill into the opening of the one on the right. Tuck the flaps of the right bill into the one on the left. This will link the two units to each other.
