Fabric (or paper) napkins
There is a video at the bottom of this tutorial if you prefer to see me doing the napkin folding.
Step 1: Fold napkin in half
Take a square napkin and fold it in half to form a triangle. NOTE: the outside face will be the most obvious in the rose.
Step 2: Roll napkin
Roll up the napkin along the folded side of the triangle. Continue to approximately half way up the triangle.
Turn the napkin over!
Step 3: Roll and tuck
Roll up the napkin along the roll you have already made. This will result in the ‘roll’ curled around the bottom of your roll and the points from the triangle at the top. Stop when you still have about 3″ (7.5cm) left to roll.
Take the ‘end’ and tuck it into the roll as shown.
Step 4: Complete the rose
Separate the triangular points at the top of the napkin and open them around the ‘rose’. You will be able to see the rose that you have formed where the rolled edge is. The triangle points are forming the leaves behind the rose and help it to sit properly on the table.
Turn the whole thing over and arrange the ‘leaves’ so that the rose looks pretty. If it all unravels you have just not got the end of the roll tucked in well enough. Have another go and make sure it is securely tucked in.
Well done! You have completed your folded napkin rose. Now repeat with all your napkins for a stunning table display. By the time you have done 6 you will be an expert and producing them in minutes! Wait for your guests to see them and be amazed at your talent. No need to share how easy they are!
