Origami Napkins: Love Them or Hate Them?

Paper origami is so last year. The newest trend is making shapes out of dinner napkins. This set ($35) comes with a lesson booklet, as well as four napkins, each with printed folding instructions for different shapes: a sailboat, a crane, a carrot, and a snail. I'm personally not crazy about the idea; I just want my napkin on my lap. Do you think it's cute or over the top?

I'm unimpressed, but 'hate' is an awfully strong word.

I think they're nice for fancy restaurants but not something I would aspire to have at home. I love the towel ones that they do on cruise ships though. Those are awesome.

One of the most awkward moments of my life occurred when the mother of my boyfriend (at the time) showed me how to make a penis out of a cloth napkin in the middle of a swanky restaurant.

My boyfriend got me this awesome book for how to do origami with towels so you could do something for a guest room. I thought that was hilariously awesome!

I think that they are cute but I would not have the time to do this myself.

It's cute and all, but I rather just use the ones I have and follow the instructions off of a youtube video. Learning from a book was always iffy with me. I could just see myself now, sitting their for hours trying to make a single carrot out of a napkin No thanks.

i'm always a bit undecided about stuff like this. i can see it's value and that it's a cute concept but for myself - not really my thing so i don't think that i would go for it.
