The Diamond Napkin Fold

Got some really limp napkins and want something nice to make without eating up too much time? Then this one's for you, if you're using thick/stiff napkins then an iron will help.


Napkin Fold #1
1. Lay the napkin face-down in front of you.
Napkin Fold #2
2. Fold the napkin in half and orient the open end toward you.
Napkin Fold #3
3. Fold the napkin into quarters.
Napkin Fold #4
4. Fold the top-most layer of the napkin in half diagonally - up and to the left.
Napkin Fold #5
5. Fold the next layer of napkin diagonally up and to the left, stopping slightly before the last fold to create an even, staggered effect.
Napkin Fold #6
6. Repeat by folding up the next layer of napkin to a point just before the last one.
Napkin Fold #7
7. And one last time with one last layer. Keep them as uniform as you can.
