Create the wave design of the table napkin
To make the waves we will fold all the right side flaps toward the left. Fold the top layer to the right first to the left corner.
Folding the first layer to the other side created a small pocket in the middle of the napkin. You must tuck the second layer on the right side into this pocket to form the first wave. Do not tuck it fully inside.
