DIY Envelope Napkin Tutorial from the January/February 2018 Issue

Sealed with a rose and delivered like letters of affection, napkins folded into lovely envelopes echo the heartfelt tradition of Valentine’s Day. Follow our easy DIY envelope napkin tutorial to create the same arrangements in our Set to Serve feature of the January/February 2018 issue. Go to the next page to see the instructions. 

Step 1
Select a square linen napkin in the festive color of your choice. Iron the napkin to create a smooth surface. Start by folding the napkin in half diagonally.

Step 2
Next, fold the top point of the tringle into the center.

Step 3
Using the same point as a guide, fold the napkin lengthwise again.

Step 4
Flip the napkin over. Fold one point into the center.

Step 5
Then, repeat the same fold with the opposite point.

Step 6
Finally, flip the napkin back over. Add a blossoming bud to create a special seal on your decorative love letter.
