Step 1: Napkin 1 - "V Fold"

Have the napkin with the seam side facing upwards.

Step 2:

Fold the napkin corner to corner from the six o'clock to the twelve o'clock position.

Step 3:

Fold the bottom left and right corners of the triangle to the top-center point.

Step 4:

Flip the napkin over with the folded-in corners facing downward at the six o'clock position.

Step 5:

Fold the bottom at the six o’clock position to the twelve o’clock position.

Step 6:

Fold the corners from the three o’clock position over to the nine o’clock position.

Step 7:

Place the napkin with longest side of the fold facing down. You should have the two tails facing away from you.

Step 8: Napkin 2: Rose

Have the napkin with the seam side facing upwards.

Step 9:

Fold corner to corner from the six o'clock position to the twelve o'clock position.

Step 10:

Begin to roll the bottom of the triangle upwards until it is approximately four inches from the top point.

Step 11:

Rotate 90 degrees and begin to roll upwards from the bottom point of the roll to the top point.

Step 12:

Tuck the tail end of your created roll into the bottom of the rose so that it doesn't unravel.

Step 13:

Flip the rose over and fold over the "petal" of the rose. It should then stand upright.
