Step 1: Materials

To make this super-hip hat, you only need one thing: A large piece of paper!

For an adult sized hat, cut a piece of packing paper down to a 18" x 24" sheet.

For a kid sized hat, make the paper 15 x 20".

If you don't have packing paper, you can use wrapping paper or newspaper, but beware that the ink from the newsprint will get on your hands! Another option is to open up a paper shopping bag and use that.

Step 2: Fold the Paper

Fold it in half, horizontally, like in the pictures above, making sure that all the edges line up with each other.

Step 3: Folding the corners

To form the peak of the hat, first you'll need to find the center of the folded sheet so you know where to fold the corners to.

To do this, fold the paper in half and make a crease half way down from the folded top, pressing gently.

Then fold the 2 corners to the center, so that the two flaps line up in the middle. Press the folded edges down.

Step 4: Making the 'Brim'

Carefully fold the two "flaps" at the bottom up. This forms the brim and helps the hat keep it's shape once opened.

Step 5: Trick it out!

Add some cool designs to jazz up your new hat. You can use paint, markers, stamps, or... WASHI TAPE!
