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.

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.

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.
