<p>Amelia loves her new hat!</p>
<p>I'm wearing this hat for HAT DAY at my school Spirt week.</p>
<p>I wore my paper hat (newspaper) while driving a school bus full of kids!</p>
<p>did it</p>
Perfect for entertaining my daughter on the train using an old free magazine!
Happy days
Easy and quick. Made me super dad for a few previous minutes. :)
<p>worked for my 3 year old thanks :)</p>
<p>i have it but i made it and its too small</p>
<p>its too small for me :[</p>
<p>Very useful. I can apply this knowledge to fold the stimulus for my QCS test once I have completed and pretend I'm a captain</p>
<p>I'm going to make these for a photo booth :)</p>
it was good but I was looking for the visual of the final product
Unfortunately a lot of newspapers have made their paper smaller than they were when I was kid. I tried to make a hat for my kids just like this a few years ago and I was amazed it didn't work. Not only was it too small, but the proportion was all off. I thought I was crazy until, like a good recovering OCD patient, I called the newspaper and they confirmed my local Arizona Republic had shrunk considerably.
It's too small :C
I know a bit of oragami, my best are those paper birds that flap their wings when you pull their tails. Does anyone think I should post this?
Yes please post the bird!
Yes, please post the bird! I'm hungry... :D
Totally! They're awesome, and really pretty.
very quick hat, nice! only drawback: using 8 1/2 x 11 paper = hat for the micro-cephalic (children!) and/or Antoine Merriweather from Men On Film (sorry hipsters, you're probably too young to get that reference). Time for me to scale this up for my melon.
how can I put this on? (not open)
Easy after you bent the two corners down fold one flap forwards and on flap backwards
1) Place on head (use a newspaper, normal paper is small), horizontal is best 2) ???? 3) Profit!!!!
southpark reference FTW
if this hat is folded in a certain way a boat is made
thx but we don't get any big things to make hats on so i just made a like a pretend one adn it looks real lol thx that was a nice and easy was that easy or wat ada peps out there YEAH i think it was thx<br />

Very cute. BTW: Newspapers haven't used petroleum based inks for decades. They no longer stain the hands...
Oh, good. I&nbsp;must be imagining things, because the last time I&nbsp;read a newspaper, SOMETHING&nbsp;made my hands black. <br />
Really? Because I remember in 8th grade, my firneds and i would go smear newspaper ink on peoples faces as practical jokes. That was about 3 years ago.
So I have to assume you're not in the U.S. I don't know where they still use petroleum based inks. They're more expensive themselves, as well as requiring more maintenance expenses.
so if the ink's petroleum based...if i set a bucket or a bobble (large one) of that ink on fire...will it burn as nice (or nearly as nice) as normal burning of petroleum? :P (not jokin...inquisitive...)
.....no. Because ink isn't petroleum based anymore. Unless you're in africa or something.
but if i used the old style petroleum based ink...and set it on fire...wud it burn nice? like any ink there is with a petroleum base...u get wut i mean? (i know i suck at expressin myself)
probably. then again doesnt normal paper or newspaper burn nice already?
i love how he like put TRICK IT OUT! and only put a lil symbol but good hat very fun
i personaly like the show naruto but gaara is wayyy kewler den naruto! (yes i am awaire dat my name says NARUTO fan)
Naruto freaking sucks
totally but the hat is awesome

You are a bellend. Why do you want to show people how to make hats? Do you live in the basement of your mums apartment? You are like a comic writer guy! Go you!!
