Standing Fan Napkin Fold Tutorial – 9 Steps


Standing Fan Napkin Fold Tutorial – 9 Steps


This napkin folding technique called a standing fan is a great napkin decor for any occasion such as weddings and birthdays. Because of its elegant and simplistic design, it is also nice to put anywhere, even on a coffee table.

We recommend using paper napkins patterned on both sides and napkins with a uniform color for folding the fan.

Difficulty Level: Easy


Vertically fold the napkin in half.

Then fold upwards the bottom edge. The smaller you make the crease, the finer the fan will be.

Now you have to turn the napkin over and fold the bottom edge upwards again. Now continue these steps up to the middle edge of the napkin, so that a fan shape is created.

Fold it lengthwise in half.

If you want to present the napkin in a nicer way, it is best to place it directly on the plate. If this type of presentation is not possible and you still want to place the fan on an aesthetic approach, put it in the left or right upper corner of the respective space. Have fun decorating!

  1. This looks rather simple to do, but I’m sure I’ll mess it up the first few times (or more) I try doing it 😊. Very beautiful work!
