Step 1

Make the base of the napkin folding for cutlery into a rectangle


To make this cutlery pocket napkin, lay a square napkin on a flat surface.


Before folding it vertically, you must first fold the left corner towards the center.


Then, fold the napkin in half now. Do this by bringing the left edge towards the right edge. Alright, good job - it's now time to move to the next set of steps.

Step 2

Make the pocket of the napkin for the cutlery


Fold the napkin again in half by bringing the bottom edge towards the top. Fold towards the back though so that the diagonal pocket is visible.


Rotate the napkin 45 degrees clockwise. Your napkin should look like in the image above.


Fold the top corner towards the middle. It should just touch the bottom triangle like in the picture above.

Step 3

Shape the pocket napkin into a hexagon


Fold a part of the left side to the back. It's up to you how you much you want to fold it to the back. The smaller the mountain fold, the bigger the pocket fold is made.


Then, do the same for the right side. Make sure the fold made makes the napkin look symmetrical. Nice job on creating this napkin folding for cutlery!
