How to Fold a Napkin into a Bishop's Mitre

Learn how to fold a napkin into a bishop's mitre with the napkin folding instructions in this Howcast video.

So this is the Bishop’s Mitre, and it’s a formal hat that we can sit on your dinnerware.

What we are going to do is fold in half towards you and then each corner, this right-hand corner we are going to bring down to this center point. Then from the top point we are going to match up the left point, and we’re going to bring that one up.

What you’re going to do is turn a quarter of a turn so then it’s horizontal facing you so the triangles are looking at you. We’re going to flip over. Then we are going to take this bottom edge, and we’re going bring it up to the top edge.

Again from here, this almost looks like a parallelogram. We’re going to move that base up to the top, and we are going to unfold that corner. Now you have two triangle points, and then you have this inner triangle.

From here we’re going to take this corner edge, and we’re actually going to tuck it inside and underneath that other triangle.

Then we’re going to flip it towards us again. We’re going to take this right edge, we’re going to tuck it in that little pocket as well just like we did the other one.

The we’re going to prop it up on our place setting. We’re going to pull out the sides so that you can have a 3D Mitre.

This is how you fold a Bishop’s Mitre Napkin.
