How to Fold a Napkin into an Envelope

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


For a simple envelope, we're going to start off with a square, and we're going to fold it into a smaller square.

You're going to fold horizontally, then across again. Then you take it towards you. We're going to fold up the corners to the center.

You're actually going to take the left-hand corner and fold that part up too, to create that envelope base, and this is when we're going to insert our cutlery. We're going to put the fork, knife and spoon in.

To dress up the envelope, we can even add a flower, a real flower here, which I have. We can pull out some marigolds, just trim it down a little bit.

So, this is how you fold a simple envelope napkin.
