Discover How to Make an Envelope Style Double Napkin Folding


Discover how to make a double napkin folding shaped like a letter with double flaps. You’ll be shown all the steps needed to create the fold along with superb pictures to help you along the way. The double envelope is similar to the envelope fold but there’s just one tiny variation – there are  two layers instead of one in the seal flap

It’s a quick fold to make and an easy one at that. This is a good napkin fold for beginners to start. Also, you’ll need a square napkin that could either be cloth or paper.

Have fun learning this fold. And we hope that you’ll be able to set up a fantastic table with this napkin fold!

Step 1

Fold the Napkin Twice


The first step is to lay a square napkin in front of you on a table.


Then fold the left edge towards the right edge.


And then fold the napkin for the second time by bringing the bottom edge towards the top. Good job! It's now time for the next steps.

Step 2

Make the First Seal Flap


Fold the topmost layer's right upper corner towards the middle.


Then do the same for the top left corner. You should have something similar to the image above.


Then fold the triangle towards the bottom. The tip should just touch the bottom edge.

Step 3

Make the Second Seal Flap


Fold the upper right corner of the next layer towards the middle.


Then do the same for the left upper corner.


Lastly fold the second triangle towards the bottom. The tip should be a little bit above the tip of the lower triangle.

Congratulations! You have successfully made the double envelope - we hope that you had fun reading this guide. And for more awesome napkin folding guides just browse through the articles below.

Extra Tips

  • Make it personal; insert the menu or a small note between the layers of the letter napkin fold. This would make a sentimental yet sweet addition to any occasion.
  • You can iron the napkin first and even starch them. This could greatly improve the looks of your cloth napkins.
  • It’s best to place the envelope napkin in the middle of the main plate. You must make sure that the left and right tips are at the same height and point toward the viewer. If the menu card, food, or something else is placed in the center of the main plate, you could put it at the top left side.
  • This is a simple fold. But the execution is important even if this is a simple and quick fold to make. So be precise, and don't lose focus.
  • Enjoy the learning process. Remember that folding napkins could be a relaxing experience. We hope you enjoyed making this letter origami napkin. We have other letter envelope napkins you can learn about on our website! Just browse through our napkin catalog located above. Happy Folding!
