Christmas Stocking

The traditional model was originally a napkin fold, but has been adapted here to be made from conventional paper. The lock at the end ensures that the necessary layers of paper say together. You will need a square of fairly crisp paper, not too thick, and preferably with a different color on the reverse side. Fancy Christmas gift wrap works exceedingly well.

Step 1: With the color you wish to be predominant in the design on top, fold up a narrow strip at the lower edge. A strip 1-2cm / 0.5-0.75in works fine with a square cut from A4 paper (21 x 29cm / 8.25 x 11.5 in).

Step 2: Turn the paper over, then fold in half to establish the vertical center crease. The strip folded in step 1 should be horizontal along the lower edge at this stage, even though it is hidden in the photograph.

Step 3: Rotate the paper 90` anticlockwise and fold the top and bottom sides to lie along the center crease.

Step 4: Fold the left-hand corners inward to meet the center crease.

Step 5: Fold the left-hand corner across to meet the inner edges of the flaps folded in step 4.

Step 6: Fold this newly created edge across to the right-hand edge.

Step 7: Fold the upper layer back across to the left, making a vertical pleat in the paper. The outer corners of this section should come to rest on top of the right-angled corners beneath.

Step 8: Turn the model round so that the narrow strip lies at the top. Valley fold the  model in half along the vertical center crease, so that all the folds are inside. Hold as shown, with the finger and thumb of one hand close to the trim at the top, while the finger and thumb of the other grip the "toe".

Step 9: Swing the toe forward and outward, so that the pleat folded in steps 6-7 allowed to stretch. New creases will form, and the toe will move position.. Flatten the model.

Step 10: To lock the, open out the two rear edges and lock inside the Stocking. On one side only, carefully lift up the border folded in step 1, creating a pocket. Now refold the Stocking, this time tucking the upper corner of the remaining half into this pocket.

Step 11: Flatten the model to complete.

Rose Napkin

This rose napkin is believed to have been collected by Stephen Weiss.
Such party tricks and napkin folds are often taught to the young and passed on from one generation to the next. It is quite a tricky final technique to master, and, because you are using a tissue napkin, you will need to treat the material with great care.
Step 1: Begin with a tissue napkin, as square as it can possibly be (not all packet the napkin are cut perfectly square). Open the napkin out completely, and arrange as shown.

Step 2: Fold the left edge inwards by 2-3cm / 0..75-1.25in.

Step 3: Now fold the lower edge up by 2-3cm / 0.75-1.25in.

Step 4: Place two fingers across the napkin, holding the horizontal strip at the lower left corner, using your thumb to hold the napkin underneath.

Step 5: Begin to roll the lower edge upward, doubling over the 2-3cm / 0.75-1.25in once again.

Step 6: To help you roll the entire height of the napkin, use your other hand to wrap the upper portion of the tissue over towards you, over the horizontal roll of material.

Step 7: The rolling almost completed.

Step 8: About 4-5cm / 1.5-2in in from the left edge, pinch the tissue tightly, squeezing the layers flat, whilst allowing the left-hand section to remain loosely rolled.

Step 9: Begin twisting the napkin tightly, to form the stem.

Step 10: Continue twisting to about halfway down the length of the roll.

Step 11: Take hold of the outermost corner of the napkin at the lower end of the tube: the base of the stem. Pull this layer upward, fluffing the ply of tissue into a soft point.

Step 12: Continue twisting the lower end of the rose, to complete the stem.

Step 13: For the rosebud, carefully turn the outer rolled layers over, to suggest the outer petals. Carefully arrange the inner rolled layers to suggest the inner petals.

The rose napkin completed.
