Standing Napkin Ring Fold

A napkin folded into a tall structure, so that it stands in a napkin ring

The Standing Napkin Ring Fold lends a certain dignity to an occasion. This is a great fold for oversized napkin rings. This fold requires more steps than most folds, but it is worth the extra effort. It does not require exceptionally stiff linen; however, very loose material may not have the desired effect.

Make a diagonal fold, gripping the lower right and bringing it up to meet the upper left corner.
