US Dollar Bill Dimension

US dollar bill dimensions is 6.14 " x 2.61" : its ratio of length:width is approximately 7:3.

For practice purposes, it is sometimes useful to make rectangles of the same proportion as a dollar bill. These sheets are larger and will allow you to "save" your dollar bills for when you are ready for the final fold.

Make US Dollar Bill Dimension Paper

  1. Start with a sheet of 8.5" x 11" paper. Fold & unfold the top-right corner down to make a 45° crease along the top-left corner.

  2. Fold & unfold top edge of the paper down to meet with the crease line made above. This gives a 22.5° angle.

  3. Make a horizontal fold where the second crease meets the right edge of the paper. Cut off this section and you will have a rectangle with US dollar bill dimension. It is a little shorter than ⅓ of the sheet.
