Got 30 Seconds? Fold a napkin into the shape of a candle...
It’s easy to feel like you don’t have time to do something “frivolous”, especially during the holidays when a hundred other things all need to be done at the same time, but this adorable napkin fold literally took me 30 seconds. I typically try to pull off a cute napkin fold for the holidays, and I’m also typically planning ahead well enough that I don’t need to worry too much about last minute folds…but this year, that didn’t happen. It was Christmas DAY, and I was frantically ironing my napkins trying to think of what might be an easy fold. I’ve done trees, and elf booties (look for future blog posts on those!) but didn’t think I had time for either. I pulled out a book my son got me about 4 years ago, and it’s become kind of my bible for napkin folds. Even if I can’t find a fold that I like, I often find a technique that helps me make my own easier adjustment. In this case, I just followed the instructions, and voila!
Once I realized how easy it was, I ran up to the filming studio and filmed for 3.5 minutes and folded 2 napkins while stammering a little along the way. So, rest assured, I didn’t spend hours and hours practicing my napkin fold so I could perform on camera…this is an easy one. I literally ran out of the kitchen (if you listen closely in the video, you can hear my husband moving dishes around while cooking Christmas dinner). This is definitely a post that lends itself better to a visual tutorial, so watching the video below is probably your easiest bet!
Until next time, do what makes you happy.
