Spread a serviette, full size, flat on the table. It must be a perfect square, exact at the corners. Bring the four corners exactly to the centre, in the way described in fig. 1. Take the corners A and B, and without turning the serviette, again bring them to the centre, as shown in fig. 2. Bring C and D likewise to the centre: this forms fig. 3. Take one corner and turn it under (not over as before) by the dotted line e to f; turn under the other three the same way. Then again bring all the four corners to the centre, on the upper side, as in fig. 2.

Afterwards repeat turning all the corners under, as in fig. 3. Then once more repeat fig. 2, and bring the remaining corners to the centre, uppermost. Press the folds firmly down. Then, one at a time, turn the corners half back shaping them like little pockets, by slipping the fingers in at C (A to B, fig. 4), and forming the corners out square. This makes the Rose. Or by turning it down in the same way, without squaring out the corners, the Star, fig. 5, is made. Open up the eight petals, to be found in the centre, and fit in the dinner roll.

The Minarettes

The Minarettes is a design expressly originated for the present work. It requires to be well stiffened. Fold the napkin in half. Turn down the corners as in fig. 1 of the Mitre. Fold in half and turn in the corners till you have an exact triangle as in the Mitre (see fig. 1). Then let down the outer side of the triangle. Fold the corners at both sides by the dotted lines, A and B (fig. 1).

Take the outer pieces, C and D, and fold back so as to have two points alike. Fold the lower end to match; halve it, and you will now have fig. 2. Fold up at the dotted line. Pass the fold inside like fig. 3. Bend over the corners like fig. 4, and place the Minarettes over the roll.

The Shell

The Shell requires a very stiff serviette. Fold the two edges together in the centre, lengthways, as shown in fig. 1. Fold in half down the centre, also lengthways, leaving the edges outside. Then crimp evenly in the manner shown in fig. 2. Open up the top end, and turn down the edges each way, as they appear in fig. 3. Keep the lower ends together like a fan. If well done, it can be balanced on the plate by the ends, in the manner illustrated by fig. 4.
