How to fold a lily from a napkin

Lily Variant # 1

Step 1: At the beginning, unfold the napkin completely. Place these on the table with the nice side down with a possible motive.

Step 2: Then fold the napkin once diagonally. Now turn the triangle so that the right-angled tip points upwards.

Step 3: Fold the left and right tips up, along an imaginary centerline.

Step 4: Then there is a square in front of you. Fold up the downward pointing tip. Do not fold up to the opposite tip, but only at a distance of 2 - 3 cm.

Step 5: Then fold the top of step 4 back down to the bottom edge of the napkin.

Step 6: Now turn the napkin with the same orientation on the back.

Step 7: Now put together the two outward-pointing tips. Slide the top tip into the flap of the other so that the napkin is closed in a round shape and holds.
