How-to Make Special Occasion Folded Napkins

Starting at the short end, fold the napkin into 1-inch accordion pleats, stopping about 4 inches from the opposite end. Make sure the fold of the last pleat is at the bottom edge and all the pleats are underneath.

Fold the napkin in half lengthwise so half of the pleats are now on top.

Fold the upper left corner down and tuck it behind the center pleat, forming a triangle. Release and let the pleats fan out.

Adjust the folds and back triangle as needed so the fan stands upright.
