Many of us use paper napkins at dinner. (I have kids and pets, and would love to switch to cloth, but it hasn’t happened yet.) I also can’t leave napkins out in a holder on the table because of the pets, so we keep ours in the cabinet. However, doing this leads to the napkins getting folded over and scrunched up. So the trick is to turn the packaging into a dispenser . . .
This is easily done: simply cut a V into the packaging instead of opening it. But here’s the trick – the ends of the V and the point need to be on different sides of the packaging. They need to go around a corner. The top ends of the V should be on the side where you see the face of the napkin, and the point should be on a side where you can see the stack. If you need a guide, take a look at any box of plastic baggies, these boxes employ the same V-cut method for dispensing. I like this for not only napkins but any other flat product that comes in a pack. I use it for reams of paper (keeps them from getting dusty) and those little cotton squares in the bathroom.
