Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
To make this super-hip hat, you only need one thing:

A piece of paper! An 8 1/2" x 11" sheet, but if you want bigger, than tape four pieces together to make one big paper rectangle. Or you can use a newspaper, but the ink will get on your hands.

Step 2: Fold the Paper

i drew the naruto village hidden in the leaves symbol and used the flaps to keep my paper shurikens in. i always thought that making these was so much more complicated than 3 folds..... thanks
