Sail Away with this Sailboat Napkin Fold - these will definitely make a splash at your next summer gathering! I love that you are able to use something you use every day to decorate your table in a new way. This festive little boat would be great for any summer soiree or perfect for your little sailor's. Great for that nautical inspired tablescape.
Here are the easy step by step instructions.
Step 1: Fold the napkin. Lay the cloth napkin flat on the surface you are using and fold the napkin in half horizontally. Fold it again vertically so that you have a square that is the fourth of the size of your original napkin.
Step 2: Rotate the napkin. Turn the napkin so that it is in the shape of a diamond with the open edges of the napkin on the bottom.
Step 3: Crease the bottom of the napkin upwards so that you have a triangle. Fold both the left and the right points of the triangle until they touch in the middle of the napkin.
Step 4: Turn down the flaps. There will be two small flaps on your napkin. Fold them under so that the front looks like a triangle again. This time fold them with a line down the middle.
Step 5: Take the left and right points and fold them towards the back until they meet. As this is happening, crease the fold.
Step 6: Pull the flaps. There will be four flaps inside of the triangle you have formed. Pull these flaps out until they look like the sails of boats.
