    In step 3, fold the sides farther from the middle if you have a bigger head

    annoying can't figure out what to do.

    I'm going to a Mad Hatter's Tea Party (stork party) and after jazzing it up with a few paper flowers, this is the mad hat I'm going in. How mad is that? Thanks for the brilliant design.

    Nice hat!

    this was great. Our 3rd grade reading story, The Printer, from Macmillan/Mcgraw-Hill, featured this type of hat. We made it in class and the kids loved them.

    i tried it but it turned out all ugly. Stupid brazilian newspapers, why the weird proportions?

    what r u talkin about, mine turned out great,this a grate instructable

    yes, it indeed. I had trouble because newspapers around here are not all the same sizes. I tried it later with a standard proportioned one, it turned out nice then!

    These are the hats the printers always wore when I was working in printshops as a teenager. I always wondered I they were made. Thank you.

    I always stopped at step 2! This is much swankier.
