Things Needed:

  • Napkin

  • Note Card

  • Black Pen

How To:

  1. Place your napkin flat on the table, backside facing you.

  2. Fold the bottom left corner towards the top right corner.

  3. When the corners meet, adjust the placement of the napkin so it makes a triangle.

  4. Then add the two corners, right and left, to the top, so it will make a diamond.

  5. Flip the diamond around. Pin the bottom of the diamond to the top, making it a smaller triangle.

  6. Round the two bottom corners together, making them touch on the bottom but rounded out.

  7. On the sheet of paper, have your company write why they’re grateful this holiday season or something nice about the person next to them.

  8. Once that’s all written down, add it to one of the flaps of the napkin, so it’s hanging out.

  9. Place the napkin on your table setting.
