My interest in serviette folding was born on a wet day at my Grandmother's house, I was a pre teen and helping her with the ironing and watched while she ironed serviettes into wonderful shapes and neatly stacked them for use. I asked her to show me how and she did. Once you know several folds and people see them, they often have at least one other that you haven't seen before, you gain knowledge of the new one and on it goes. Now that I have already posted all the napkin folds I know, I decided to look on the net for some new ones to learn. This one is a simple wrap for your cutlery or silverware.
- 1 paper, serviette (large)
- 1 cloth, serviette (large)
- 1 ribbon (or florists or gift tape)
Directions See How It's Made
- Lay your serviette square out flat before you. Fold it in half horizontally.
- Take the serviette and fold it in half again vertically so that it is now a small square a quarter the size of the origonal square.
- Only one corner of the square will have 4 open / loose edges, rotate your square so that it is a flat diamond shape with the open corner pointing downwards. We will call this the South corner, and the top corner opposite North.
- Take the corner at East and fold it half way towards the center of the serviette. Repeat with the West corner.
- PLace your cutlery in the center of the serviette ( vertically) and then fold the East side over to meet the point of the little triangle that's on the West side pointing inwards.
- This will enclose the cutlery.
- Then take the West side and bring it east, and secure the roll with a pretty bow or some gift tape. Your cutlery will be wrapped snuggly inside.
