Towel origami-making a Balinese flower from a dinner napkin or bath towel
A dinner napkin
Balinese paper or fabric flower
Balinese paper or fabric folded flowers are beautiful. You don't have to be super creative to make these. These are simple to make and can really compliment a fancy dinner party, baby showers, cocktail parties or even place-settings at events like weddings, or conventions. The best size fabric to use, I've found are paper napkins, towels, or fabric napkins. The more square the starting piece of fabric the better. Also, using spray starch or crisp clean fabric the easier to fold. This will be easiest to fold and retain its shape. These take less than 4 minutes each to fold, and with a little practice you can crank them out like an assembly line.
You can even add trinkets, candies, or place cards to the center to make them even more elegant, interesting, or thoughtful.
I've noticed that this simple towel origami inspires great conversations starters! They are great conversation pieces, and icebreakers.
