(I said it was corny, but it gives you something to read while all the graphics are downloading.)
These two areas will become the stand which will allow the portrait to stand up like a picture frame.
These last two folds aren't intended to lie flat, but should stay a little more that 90 degrees, to hide the "stand" of the picture frame from the front.
The top fold is simply to help hide the "wings" from the front. The bottom fold is done at a slight angle, and will determine the angle at which the portrait sits on a surface.
Now make a second fold at a diagonal between the top edge of the bill and the end to the bottom fold. (These folds aren't critical, but help hide the rear edges when viewed from the front.)
When viewed from the front, this is about what it should look like.
Doing these with 5s, 10s, and old 20s is exactly the same.
For the new 20s, 50s, etc., just adjust the initial fold points (around the portrait area). The back (shown here without the "hiding" folds) is asymmetrical, but who cares?
