Summer Time Pinwheel Napkin Fold

Who can agree with me when I say that each new day brings yet another opportunity to learn something new?  As you can see, I have been "experimenting" with new functions in my blog, such as the scrolling slide feature located on the right hand side in the sidebar, highlighting some of my fun dessert recipes.  Hopefully, small added changes like these will allow me to expand my "Kitchen Creations" section of my blog.

And, although I do not have the option of posting my recipes into a really appealing format like those bloggers who use Word Press, I have been doing what I can to use whatever functionality I have available in Google Blogger, such as creating a separate, text-only printable version of a recipe.  Please see my previous post entitled, An Easy Baked Apple Pie Rose Tart.

So now that I mastered some new features, it is time to concentrate on this week's requested post which will include step-by-step instructions on how to fold a pinwheel napkin.  To begin, use a napkin which is made of a fabric that is rather stiff and will hold its shape when folded.

Now lets get started.

Step 1:  Place the napkin fully opened in front of you.


Step 2:  Fold each corner of the napkin to the center of the napkin.


Step 3:  Now fold the left and right side of the napkin to the center.


 Step 4:  Fold the bottom of the napkin to the center of the napkin.


Step 5:  Turn the napkin around and fold the other bottom edge to the center of the napkin.


Step 6:  Now pull the "corner" out from the bottom right section of the napkin.


Step 7:  Do the same for the left side of the napkin.


Step 8:  Take the corner of the right "wing" and fold the point down toward you.


Step 9:  Time to do the other side.  Turn the top section of the napkin around so that it is now the bottom.  (Note:  You will now actually be repeating steps 6, 7 and 8 again to the new bottom section.)  To simplify, I will walk you through the process in the following steps.  Therefore, pull out the "corner" of right side of the napkin.


Step 10:  Do the same for the left side of the napkin.


Step 11:  Lastly, take the corner of the right "wing" and fold the point down toward you and the napkin folding is completed.


Step 12:  Add a few embellishments and.....ta da........it is all done!
