1. Fold all four corners of your Meli Wrap into the center so you have a smaller square.
2. Now fold two opposite sides of the Meli Wrap in to the center. These will now be your 'sides' and the other two we'll call the 'ends'.
3. Unfold the two folds you just made so that you have a little square again. Then, unfold the ends of your Meli Wrap.
4. Now unfold the two ends. Always pay attention to the creases, the folds you're making will make it easy to make your box.
5. Fold the two longer sides into the center. Your Meli Wrap Beeswax Wrap will be a box soon!
6. Now for a very fun fold. Take the ends of your beeswax wrap and fold them along the diagonal line we've illustrated.
7. Unfold the two ends so that your Meli Wrap looks like the picture below. Pay attention to the fold lines on the ends of your Meli Wrap. These will be the folds you use in step 6.
8. Now lift the two sides so that they're standing up like this:
9. This is the really fun fold! Using all the creases you've created fold as shown and stick the folds to the end. The end should be standing up when you're done with this step.
10. Fold the standing end down then into the box. This should create the third wall of your box.
11. Your box should have three sides now. Repeat steps 9 & 10 on the other end.
YOU MADE A MELI WRAP BOX!
Use your box to hold treats, snacks, or gifts. You can even make a slightly larger box to use as a lid!

Four Hawaiian Holiday Napkin Folds
December 01, 2020
This year give your holiday dinner table a bright Hawaiian pop of color with colorful reusable napkins folded in fun ways! We're going to show you how to do these four napkin folds so you can try it yourself at home!
1. The Ti Leaf
This is a simple fold that adds a pop of color to the setting and creates a space for the silverware on the plate. A perfect choice for smaller spaces and if you need something quick and easy.
- Lay the napkin patterned side down in a diamond shape in front of you.
- Fold the sides into the center as shown on the illustration.
- Flip over! You're done!

2. The Torch Ginger
This fold can be done with a single napkin but it's most colorful and fun when doubled up as we did here. For a double napkin, just lay the second napkin on top of the first and follow all the steps. This fold can be laid flat on the plate or it can stand up for even more fun!
- Lay the napkin patterned side down in a diamond shape in front of you. If using two, lay the second one on top of the first so that both patterned sides are facing out.
- Fold the bottom quarter up as shown in the illustration.
- Fold in the two sides.
- Tuck one side into the fold of the other in the back to make it neat and easier to stand up.

3. The Orchid
This is the most complicated fold we're featuring, but the end result is so pretty! If you've got a little extra time this fold will really wow your family.
- Lay the napkin down in a square shape in front of you.
- Fold all four corners into the center as shown in the illustration.
- Flip it over.
- Fold all four corners into the center again as shown in the illustration.
- Now turn the folded napkin over while holding it in your hand with the triangle folds facing up, the square folds in the back.
- Gently pull one of the four square fold corners from the back over to the front of the napkin. You should create a rounded petal shape as shown in the photo above.
- Repeat with all four corners.

4. The Fan Palm
This fun little fold is easy enough to do, even the kids can do this one! This fold requires a napkin ring or anchor of some sort. We used a little wooden ring we had lying around but you can use a bit of ribbon, a mini clothespin, or anything your imagination comes up with!
- Fold about 1/8 of the napkin up, then back until the whole thing is a thin, long folded piece.
- Fold the entire thing in half lengthwise.
- Anchor the center and fan out!
