Serviette/Napkin Folding, Easy Make-In-Advance

Recipe by kiwidutch
READY IN: 4mins


  • 1
    paper, serviette (large)
  • 1
    cloth, serviette (large)


  • 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 uppermost of the loose points at the South position and fold it up to meet the North point.
  • Take the next loose point at South position and also fold it towards the north point but stop short of it so that you have a triangle within a triangle.
  • Repeat with the remaining two loose points so that you now have a set of ever decreasing triangles on the front of your triangular serviette. If you have time, press these with an iron so that you have crisp sharp creases ( this does improve the result immensely).
  • Carefuly turn the serviette over and take the bottom right point and bring it up to a central point midway along the edge between the bottom left point and the top at North.
  • Repeat with the remaining corner. Iron the creases.
  • Turn the serviette over again to show off the neat front side.
