Matthew turned a simple cream-colored linen dinner napkin into a beautiful creation! Enjoy this simple how-to fold a napkin pouch tutorial.
- Iron all napkins flat.
- Fold napkin on the diagonal.
- Fold straight edge of the napkin halfway toward the point.
- Fold the left side in to the center.
- Fold the right side into the center.
- Fold remaining points down… one to the front and one to the back.
- Use the finished pouch to fill with table favors.
For the fresh flowers pictured above, fill pouch with votive holder and fill holder with water. Arrange with spring flowers.
Fresh Flower Napkin
Create a pretty Easter place setting, by filling the pouch with planted blooms and placing a tag inside. Download Amy’s Free Printable Easter Card pictured below.
Candy Basket Napkin
For a candy filled Easter basket, fill the pouch with candy eggs and place blooming or leafy twigs in each side to form a faux basket handle. Attach a monogram sticker to the outside.
Party Favor Napkin
For a take-away favor, tie the pouch with a seam binding and fill with egg shells filled with real chocolate. Add a personal greeting on each egg with rub off letters.
Thanks for the creative inspiration Matthew!
