Step 1

Combine both napkins

How to Make an Ice Cream Single Pocket Napkin Fold - Step 01A

The first objective of the single pocket napkin fold is to fold the napkins until they are 1/4 in size. Grab two pieces of square napkin.


Place one napkin at the bottom (yellow). Fold the second napkin (green) lengthwise in half. Place the green napkin's left edge on the yellow napkin's vertical crease line.


Fold the left edge of the yellow napkin towards the right. You should cover the green napkin by doing so. Then fold it in half crosswise.

Step 2

Fold the Top Layer Diagonally of the Single Pocket Fold


Fold the top right corner of the yellow napkin towards the bottom. It should be noted that this single pocket napkin fold uses yellow for the cone and a green napkin for the ice cream. And you can choose whatever color that you want - green & yellow is cool but there are other great color combinations out there!


Diagonally fold about three or four times until you have something like the image above. Great job! Your ice cream single pocket fold is almost done.

Step 3
