Napkins! “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em, Know when how to fold ’em!” ♫ ♪

Men, I’m looking at you here. It’s a new era. Gone are the days that a bit of stubble and a beer gut showed off our mature sides. These days there’s all sorts of skills we’re expected to pull off with aplomb that personally this writer was NEVER warned about.

One of these voodoo skills is napkin folding.

Being able to cook a fancy meal for your partner has long been the norm, but to really stand proud amongst your contemporaries these days you need to be able to craft linen-gravy-catchers into swans, bunnies or Justin Beiber (or something).

Luckily for you, your Massive buddies are here to help! We’ve pulled together some of the more user-friendly napkin folding techniques from around the interweb and laid them out below. Each method takes less than a minute and I’ve even done a couple myself to prove I’M NOT AFRAID OF YOU, NAPKIN!
