Decorative Napkin Folding for Beginners by Lillian Oppenheimer, Natalie Epstein
Napkins are easy to fold into ingenious shapes and add a touch of festivity to any dinner. Whether you use paper or cloth, a napkin folded into a delightful shape is a welcome way to start a meal.
Twenty-two different napkin folds are clearly shown, beginning with very simple folds and gradually leading to more involved ones. None of the folds is difficult and any square napkin, paper or cloth, can be used. Shapes include: Heart, Clown's Hat, Japanese Kimono, Cardinal's Hat, Nest, Love Knot, Ascot, Lady's Slipper or Boot, Candle, Silverware Holder, Peacock, Rabbit, and more.
For each napkin there are step-by-step drawings and instructions showing exactly where and how to make each fold. A photograph of the finished napkin accompanies each project. The clear, simple instructions enable anyone, even absolute beginners, to decorate a table using creative napkin folding.
