Step 5: Pinch the center of the folded napkin to hold the bow shape in place.

Perfect for special occasions or a romantic dinner, the Heart Fold adds a delightful touch to your table. Follow these steps to create a lovely heart-shaped napkin:
Step 1: Begin with a square napkin and fold it in half diagonally to form a triangle.
Step 2: Fold the napkin into rectangle shapes, moving upwards. This will create multiple layers.
Step 3: Pinch the center of the folded edge and bring both corners upwards, meeting at the top.
Step 4: Take the top corner (the one with the folded edge) and twist it outward and downward, creating a diagonal fold.
Step 5: Tuck the twisted corner inward, sliding it into the pocket formed by the layers of the folded napkin. This will create one-half of the heart shape.
Step 6: Repeat the same twisting and tucking process on the other side, ensuring that both halves of the heart are symmetrical.
Step 7: Gently adjust the edges and curves of the folded napkin as needed, shaping it into a more defined heart shape.Watch the Heart Napkin Tutorial by Stephanie Commisso
