When I packaged the Christmas napkins I made for family members this year, I used a French Napkin Fold I saw in my parents’ “Food Network Magazine” issue. You can see the magazine’s instructions here and my version follows below.
|Here’s a nice way to package up napkins for gift giving.|
|Start with the napkin right side up.|
|Fold the napkin up, with right sides touching.|
|Then fold a quarter of it down (right sides are showing).|
|Carefully flip the napkin over so the wrong side is showing and fold the napkin into thirds.|
|Now you have a little pocket where you can slide in silverware. You can stop here or go to the next step, which makes the napkins easier to store or package.|
|Fold the top half of the French Fold Napkin over and you have a perfect square for storing or wrapping as a gift.|
