Want to learn an easy napkin fold? Try the fish fold technique – it’s easy and fits light-hearted occasions. It’s also appropriate in a restaurant that serves seafood. So if the occasion involves kids in your seafood restaurant then this fold is worth considering.

You’ll only have to do a few simple folds to make the fish napkin. So what are you waiting for? Grab a paper or cloth napkin then start folding.

If you find this fold too easy and you want something more intricate then read our other guides. We have plenty of cool napkin folds for all events.

Step 1

Fold the Napkin in Half


Lay the napkin in front of you and find a flat surface. This fish fold napkin is easy to make. Orient the napkin like in the image above.


Then fold the napkin in half by bringing one corner to the other. In this case, the top corner was folded towards the bottom corner.

Step 2

Fold the Napkin Thrice


In this step you will be folding the napkin three times. First, fold the bottom corner towards the top edge.


Diagonally fold the left edge like in the picture above.


Then do the exact same thing on the right side. You'll then have a symmetrical napkin. Good job, you are now close to making a fish napkin.

Step 3

Make the Body and Tail


Fold the left corner towards the middle. This will make one-half of the fish's body and tail.


Then do the same for the right side. As you can see, you have just made the tail and body of the fish.


But there's one more thing you need to do. Flip the napkin over and you are done! Congratulations. For more awesome folds, check out the articles recommended down below.
