Early on, paper folding captured my interest when I was introduced to Origami. The natural progression of folding led me to napkins. I even appreciate the eye pleasing appeal of neatly folded towels and linens. I began to teach napkin folding in tandem with tablescape workshops and, over the years, I have created several folds of my own.
Pictured below is the Butterfly Fold. There are other versions of the butterfly, but this is my personal favorite. It works well with both paper and cloth as long as the napkins are perfectly square. It is also alright to use a napkin with a wrong side since it will be hidden from view.
I promised Andi at Andi's Everyday Adventures that I would showcase this fold on my blog. If she likes it, I will follow-up with another photo tutorial for the benefit of all.
