The Croissant Napkin Fold | An Advance Fold Made Simple


Welcome to the croissant napkin folding guide! In this article, you will be shown all the steps necessary to fold your square napkins like a croissant. You could use paper or cloth napkins for this fold.

Croissants are crescent-shaped pastries of french origins that have long since become a popular breakfast meal or snack.

And if you are a fan of that French viennoiserie pastry then this fold is perfect for you. Also, this is a good fold to have in your arsenal because you never know when you will be hosting a meal full of baked dishes.

Anyways, please enjoy reading and making your first croissant napkin fold!

Step 1

Fold the Napkins Twice


Your first step is to get two square napkins of different colors. They must be a good combination in relation to your overall table setting theme. Then place one napkin on top of another perfectly.


Then fold the left edges of the napkins towards the right side. From now on, the pair of napkins will be referred as one.


And then fold the napkin downwards in half. Rotate the napkin 90 degrees clockwise and you are now ready to move to the next steps.

Step 2

Fold the Bottom Left Corner


Your next goal is to fold the bottom left corners to the top right. There are several layers and each succeeding layer will be farther from the top right corner. Fold the first two layers towards the top right.


Then fold another layer.


Then do the same for the next one.


The last layers you could just fold together to the top right. Good job, now it's time to move to the next steps.

Step 3

Fold the Left and Right Corners


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


Roll the left corner towards the middle. It doesn't have to reach the top part though.


And lastly, roll the other side so that you'll have a symmetrical napkin. Congratulations! You have made your own croissant napkin fold.

Extra Tips

  • You can iron your cloth napkins first. Starching is also an option.
  • A thicker/sturdier paper napkin is recommended.
  • Be precise and focused when folding the napkins. But enjoy the process.
