Napkin Folding

Napkin Folding from

Hello there and welcome to another blog post from me…. Zoe!

Today I’m going to teach you how to fold this beautiful flower napkin.  This is a great fold for parties, weddings and social dinners.  Today I have chosen a very party themed napkin!

You first start by carefully unfolding the napkin and turning it over so the pattern is on the underneath.

Once out flat, start by folding each of the four corners into the centre.

Once they are all folded repeat the process with the four new corners.

And finally again with the last four corners, so you should have repeated the first process three times.

Now turn over your napkin, so your folded side is underneath.

And repeat, folding the new corners into the centre as before, only once this time however.  At this point you should have your four corners folded on the front, and some loose flaps on the back

Your napkin should look quite small by now and it might be trying to undo its self, so you will need to keep a firm hand on it.

The next stage is where it gets a bit tricky.  While holding the napkin in place, gently fold over the very top corner of one of your four corners.  It does not need to be a big fold, perhaps 1 cm. 

Once you have this fold, hold it with your thumb, and gently pull the loose flap from the underneath, over the top to form a petal shape.

Do this to all four corners.  This might take a little practice as you have to also hold the centre of the napkin to prevent the other corners coming undone.

Once you have done this you will see that on the underside there are still some loose flaps.

What you will need to do is one by one gently pull them upwards so to create the leaves.

Do this again with the final lot of loose flaps and you should be left with a beautiful flower napkin that will look good on any plate at any party!
