  • 1

    Start with Chinet Classic® Dinner Napkin and unfold twice to form a long rectangle.

  • 2

    On each end of the rectangle, fold in the left and right corners to the center to form a triangular point.

  • 3

    Fold each point to meet in the center of the napkin. Your napkin should now look like a square.

  • 4

    Fold the napkin in half so that the points are on the outside.

  • 5

    Take only the top layer of the left corner of the napkin and fold it across to meet at the top right corner, forming a diagonal angle on the left side of the napkin.

  • 6

    Take only the top layer of the right corner of the napkin and fold it across to meet at the top left corner, forming a triangle.

  • 7

    Fold napkin in half to form a smaller triangle.

  • 8

    The first half of your tree should now have four branches.

  • 9

    Repeat these steps to form the second half of the tree. Place the two sections back-to-back to create the full tree.
