How to Fold this Rose Napkin

On the right side of the rolled napkin, tightly roll into a ball leaving 5″ from the end. Stand the napkin upright and tuck the 5″ tail under the roll, see step 5.
Separate or unfurl the points of the napkin standing ( these are the leaves of the rose). Turn napkin over to reveal the rose. Add artificial rose leaves inside the pink napkin leaves to make it look real.
