Lay flat a square napkin, and fold each corner to meet at the center, pressing folds as you work to create a square. Flip the napkin over and fold each corner to the center again, pressing each fold as you work. Press down on the center of the napkin to hold the corners in place. Reach underneath and pull up each corner to create the water lily petals. Push the center of each petal back gently to help its shape.
