    Usually, if you rub them between your fingers at the edge, they will start to separate.

      Some are stuck together more than others. Try dampening your fingers, and gently working them apart. Hope that helps.

    Hi Hal: If they are paper napkins, just moisten your fingers and grab one edge at the corner and pull very lightly and slowly. You might try to iron them on the dry setting, and see if they come apart that way. It's a tedious job, but it can be done:)

      Thank you, I will try the iron suggestion because it is one I have never heard before and maybe it will be the one that works

    I would try something a little bit sticky, like a pencil eraser in each hand, and gently pulling on the bottom layers.

      Thank you, I will try the eraser suggestion I am at the stage of pulling my hair out LOL but maybe I can get it done now with all the great suggestions I have gotten here

    I hope so. I'm thinking you're going to mod podge something:) Another thing you might try is to gently rub the plys together like you would if you're opening a plastic bag, or look for an area where there is an air pocket and maybe sticking a chop stick into it and wiggling it around, gently again, and separate it that way. This is a grueling task:)

    Hi there, dampen your finger a tiny bit and rub it gently on the front corner of the napkins. The lop layer should stick to your finger and you can peal it off gently.
