How to Fold a Napkin into a Rose

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

So the inspiration for the next fold is a rose. And as you can see here our beautiful yellow roses that complement the napkin.

So we’re going to start off with folding our napkin in half, make a nice crease here. And then we’re going to reopen it and then we’re going to fold it down in half again. Make a nice crease. Then we’re going to peel that back.

So now you’ve created four quadrants that you can bring your corners up to the center. So you’ll notice your hair lines here and you can just start folding up to the center, these triangles. And make sure you just have a nice crease on the edges. Make sure these line up.

So then we’re going to flip your napkin. And again, you have these points that you’re going to fold into the center. So one by one, just bring them up to the center. So you have a square. Okay, so then we’re going to lift the corner up. We’re going to start with this one over here on the upper right. We’re going to pull it towards us and underneath you’re going to reveal the flap from the other fold.

So we’re going to make sure we pop this petal up and pull this out. It’s a little tricky. We’re going to do that all the way around. We’re going to lift this up, pull that under, pop up that petal. Same thing for the last. We’re going to make sure that corner’s there. Pop that up. Then we’re going to transfer it to our dish, carefully.

And that’s how you fold a rose napkin.
