About This Article
To make fake money, start by searching online for images of play money, since printing genuine bills is illegal. Alternatively, you can use watermarked images of bills from the Treasury Department of the United States. You should also make sure your bills are either 75 percent smaller or 150 percent bigger than regular bills so you don’t break any laws. Once you’ve found a good image, print it and cut out the bill to make your own fake money. If you want to make it even more realistic, soak your paper in tea or coffee to give it a light brown tint.
