Make these DIY Napkin Envelopes for your Valentine’s Day party and insert a sweet card for your guests. See how to fold them, here.
I don’t usually get caught up in fancy napkin folding, but this idea just seemed to fit so well with the Valentine’s Day theme that I thought I’d share how to do it. These diy napkin envelopes look so cute with a small printable Valentine’s day card tucked inside. You can use it on a children’s table, a Valentine’s Day dinner for two, even this cheese fondue for two Valentine’s dinner. You can really dress it up or keep it casual.
I used small cotton cocktail napkins about 10-inches square, but you could also use paper napkins if you like. Full size napkins were pretty large for this particular fold, however.
You can see how I used this on a children’s Valentine’s day table over on the Homes site here.
How to Fold DIY Napkin Envelopes:
- Iron your napkin so it’s wrinkle free, and lay it flat in a diamond shape.
- Fold one side in towards the middle.
- Fold the other side in towards the middle.
- Bring the bottom up to the middle.
- Now fold the bottom half up over the top half to meet the base of the ‘flap’.
- Tuck a card inside and fold the flap over. Seal it with a puffy heart sticker.
For best results iron the folds as you go so they lay down flat. Place them on each plate and continue setting the table.

Even though this was for a kids table, the idea would work equally well for grown ups too, don’t you think!
Have a great day!
