Monopoly Brooch

New origami brooch made from Monopoly money.I found a travel monopoly game in my loft,the size of the money was perfect and gave me a great oportunity to experiment with a repeating process (origami) and also a repeating material (money).This is something I have wanted to do for some time as repetition as a method of working interests me and it is suprising difficult to find suitable paper based materials without having to buy lots of stuff that you dont want,e.g sweets,lottery tickets etc.. It also gave me the chance to use money even if it is play money,the concept of value remains the same without literally breaking the bank of me!
