How to Make the Cross Napkin Fold | Awesome Surprise


Are you looking for an amazing napkin fold that you can use on a wide variety of occasions? If you are then the cross napkin fold might be the one you are looking for.

What makes this particular napkin fold so surprising is that it’s not that hard to do. Yet, it allows you to turn a square napkin into a cross or a plus sign. Your guests will surely be surprised to see their napkins folded like origami paper.

Anyways, you have only required one square napkin which can either be paper or cloth. Have fun learning this neat technique!

Step 1

Fold the Corners


Welcome to the cross napkin fold tutorial. Your first step is to lay a square napkin on a flat surface.


Then fold the right top corner towards the middle.


And then do the same for the rest of the corners. Also, orient the napkin in the same way as the napkin above is oriented. Great job! Now it's time to move to the next step.

Step 2

Fold the Corners to Middle Again


Flip the napkin towards the other side.


Fold the bottom corner towards the middle.


And do the same for the other corners.

Step 3

Unfold the Sides of the Cross


Filip the napkin. Fold the bottom right corner towards the middle.


And then do the same for the rest of the corners.


This next will be tricky but after this challenging part you'll have yourself a nice cross napkin. All you got to do is to spread out the right upper part by using two fingers to spread that part of the napkin out. It will easily form.


Then do the same for the rest of sides. Congratulations! You have finished the cross napkin fold. For more wonderful napkin fold, check out the guides below.
