Don’t let the attractive fold of this napkin fool you. It is not just a pretty face, but a hard worker too. It does double duty as a napkin for your mouth and lap AND a pouch for your utensils.
Wouldn’t these napkins be great at a picnic using a fun bandanna? Or, dressed up in crisp white damask for a fancy dinner? A place card could be tucked in the folds or a flower would look so pretty peeking out of the pocket. There are so many creative ways to use this napkin fold!
StoneGable Diamond Napkin Fold
1. Lay napkin face down.
2. Fold napkin in half horizontally, oriented with the opening facing you.
Fold napkins in quarters, and orient the napkin opening away from you.
3. Fold the top layer almost all the way forward and press.
4. Press the next layer on top of the first layer, letting the edge of the first layer peek out from underneath.
5. Repeat with the 3rd layer.
6 and 7. Turn the napkin over, face down, and fold the corners over one another. Make sure it is symmetrical from the front. Secure one corner between the folds of the other corner.
Now get creative… pick out a fun napkin, fold it and tuck some great flatware in it… even if you just do it for yourself…. I did! What a sweet little treat!
