I know there are a few but I was curious if there are more out there. I know Michaels Close's Rabbit trick, Frog Prince, DG's Butterfly. Im looking with bills and card effects. Also if people have different handlings of the before mentioned those would be great to hear as well. I love Frog Prince but am looking for a cleaner (JEDI) move.

Folding Money Fooling by Robert E. Neale - Book

How To Make Entertaining Novelties From Dollar Bills

Would you like to learn how to easily fold amazing origami models, and then entertain with them? Robert E. Neale's Folding Money Fooling contains 13 easily constructed models, all using paper money. Robert's verbal and pictorial descriptions make learning every detail of these models easy.

They are created for adults, but many will entertain children-especially the finger puppets in Puppet Poetry and the tale illustrated with many different shapes in A Boy's Modest Adventure. A rabbit pops out of a top hat in Bunny Bill, a model popular among magicians."

I believe there's one called "instant origami" which is on a Jay Sankey video (Sankey 1999) - no doubt re-released on DVD!

The color changing hexagon is basically a paper folding trick.

It has been laminated and is an inside-out folding routine that produces six colors from a two-sided hexagon.

Could someone explain the effect “Pyramid of Immortality” by Robert E. Neale (found in the book Folding Money Fooling). The name has peaked my curiosity. Thank you in advance.

There are several in a series of "Impossible Foldings" and one (on the 2nd page) "Paper Folding Stories for Magicians" that I have considered in the past. Just have not had the ambition to take on another hobby yet. (I think origami will take a lot of practice).

I know you are looking for bill and card effects but I have performed something called Origamagic Crane to good reaction. SEOMagic looks like they are one supplier although I got it from a brick and mortar shop when I was visiting the U.S. I'm not sure how widely known it is but I think it started off as a fun spectacle lens cleaning gimmick.

Take a look at my "Card Cube" effect from Alakazam Magic Limited.
That might interest you!

I used the very ancient TROUBLE WIT, for years, in my school assembly program. I presented it as ORIGAMI. The kids liked it, and, the TEACHERS, also!

You can make one! Check out the late Frank Herman's book on TROUBLE WIT, published by Magic Inc. (30 years ago!)

Jim Reilly (New Zealand) made great T Wits. Stage size and parlor size!

It's not bills or cards, but looks cool.

Sometimes I do Pat Pages "Easy Money and use my innermost bill to make an (pre-folded and unfolded) elephant. It folds quickly because of the latent folds.

Being an Elephant, it makes a nice remembrance gift for the Birthday Child. This helps take the heat off the other bills (not that that is really a problem).

Having the option offers a nice way lengthen or shorten the show due to time issues.

Once I did this in a house where they had a line of carved elephants in descending size and my elephant fit perfectly as the next smaller size, sweet.

This immediately reminds me of Frog Prince. But when it comes to "origami style" effects, Robert Neale is the person to go to.

"Celebration of sides" was amazing for me, and he also has other releases that are brilliant.
