Do you remember making paper hats as a kid? Here's a fun twist on the classic paper hat you made in grade school. With a touch of whimsy and elegance, you can create these fun hats for any occasion. The beauty of this simple craft lies in its versatility. How fun would these be as a centerpiece for a birthday party or bridal shower?! You could also use papers from the Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage collection and make some fun holiday party hats.
I haven't made this style of hat since I was a kid, so I had to refresh my memory on how to make one. I simply googled "how to make a paper hat" and several tutorials popped up. I used one sheet from the Vintage Finds collection and one sheet from Tell Your Story. I love how papers from two different lines complement each other so beautifully. After I made the basic hat, the fun really began! I made paper feathers by folding a small scraps of paper in half and cutting them into a half oval. I kept the paper folded in half and cut slits all the way down the "feathers". I then embellished the hat with a glitter border, feathers, medallion, sticker and tissue garland around the edge of the hat.
Here's another hat using chipboard elements, butterfly stickers and medallions from the Tell Your Story collection.
1 sheet Vintage Finds paper (cut down to 8.5x11)
1 sheet Tell Your Story paper (cut down to 8.5 x 11)
