Christmas Napkin Fold - Elf Boot
A couple of years ago I folded my Christmas napkins into Elf Boots. They got rave reviews, so I thought I'd show you how to make your own for this Christmas.
The napkins I used were on the smallish side, but you can buy larger napkins if you like. Anyway, here's the Elf Boot:
They look adorable on a Christmas Table. I put a couple of small candy canes in the top that year.
Here's a photo tutorial on how to make one:
1) Open up your napkin and fold both sides into the middle.
2) Now fold one more time in half
You now have this:
As you can see, I bent the collar down and added some shiny holly and a berry inside the other side pocket. (I used what I could find quickly) You can also add things in the top, but you don't want too much weight or the Elf Boot paper napkin won't stand up!
You're done! Good for you!! =D
UPDATE 2011: Here's a photo I found of some I made before...they're a little ragtag, but I wanted to show you how they look with different napkins.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial, and I hope it's easy to understand.
Thanks for visiting!
