Step 1

Fold the Napkin Lengthwise


Lay a square napkin in front of you on a table you are comfortable with.


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


And then fold the napkin in half now. Bring the left edge towards the right edge. Alright, good job - it's now time to move to the next set of steps.

Step 2

Fold the Top Corner


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


Then rotate the napkin 90 degrees clockwise. Your napkin should look like in the image above.


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

Step 3

Fold the Sides of the Napkin


Fold the left corner towards the middle at the back side of the napkin. Take note that the triangle at the top is unfolded


Then do the same for the right side and you should get a symmetrical napkin. Nice job on creating the envelope for cutlery napkin! And remember, for more napkin folding guides just check out the articles below.
