The “Pyramid” is simple, and can be done in just 6 easy steps.

1. Lay out a square napkin, and begin by folding it up diagonally to form a triangle.

2. Fold up one of the bottom corners, to meet the point at the top.

3. Do the same thing with the point on the other side.

4. Flip the whole thing over.

5. Now just fold it in half from the top to the bottom.

6. Lift it from the center, so that it folds in on itself.

When you stand it upright, your decorative napkin pyramid is finished.

You can probably guess that this will work with paper napkins as well.
