Dan Tague is a Louisiana-based artist who uses cash money to create clever and thought-provoking works of art. Most folded paper craft art is created to make an image or produce a three-dimensional object. Dan Tague's pieces, however, are folded to reveal messages and phrases from the letters on the bills that essentially serve as social commentary.

To produce his artworks Dan Tague uses multiple bills folded on top of each other to utilize different letters and words printed on them. Some of the phrases that Dan Tague pieces together include "Live Free or Die," "Reality Sucks" and "Trust No One." It's surprising how many different words and lines Dan Tague can come up with using only the written words on the American bills. Stats for Clever Cash Creations (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Warm
