Learn how to fold a napkin into an arum lily with the napkin folding instructions in this Howcast video.

So now we’re going to fold the iron lily. So we’re going to take our yellow napkin here. We’re going to flip it over, and we’re going to create a triangle. We’re going to take our two corners from the left and the right and fold up to the center to create a diamond shape.

From here, we’re going to take the bottom edge, and we’re going to raise it up about two thirds of the way up. We’re going to take that point and bring it back down to create another triangle. Then we’re going to take these triangles at the top here, and we’re going to also fold those ones down and tuck them underneath your other triangle fold.

Then we’re going to flip over, and we’re going to take the left and right corners. And we’re going to end up rolling them up to meet each other. We’re going to tuck one edge, so take the left one into the other one. We’ll pop up our lily. Let’s put it on a place setting. Just make sure that that base triangle also stays down.

So this is how you fold an iron lily.
