How to Fold a Napkin into a Pouch

Learn how to fold a napkin into a pouch with the napkin folding instructions in this Howcast video.

Now we’re going to fold a napkin pouch, and this is a perfect way to display some fresh flowers on your place setting.

What we’re going to do is, take our napkin here, and we’re going to fold it in a diagonal, and then we’re going to rotate it 45 degrees, so that it’s facing you. And the point is facing to the right. Then we’re going to take that, and we’re going to fold it across, until you have a little bit of an overhang triangle.

Then you’re going to take your top, and you’re going to pull it back down, about two thirds of the way. And then you’re going to take your bottom corner, and you’re going to fold that one up. And you’re going to flip it over, and you’re going to tuck this corner into that pouch right there.

And then you’re going to fold back this top portion right here. You’re going to pop it up, and fold over the other triangle. You can put your fist in there, just to make sure that you can pop it out in a nice pouch.

Then we’re going to transfer it to our plate. And to complete the napkin, we’re going to put some fresh flowers inside for your guests. Let’s see here. Just pull out a couple of fresh flowers, put those guys in. Maybe one more. This marigold here.

And we’ll just rest them inside, and you have your napkin pouch.
