Basic Paper Hat
Mar 6th, 2011 by Craftylocks
basic-paper-hat-5 This is one of the most classic paper crafts for children – the simple folded paper hat that can even be made from newspaper.

But when I sat down to make one with my daughter – my mind went blank – despite having made them many times many years ago – it had gone! As I needed to look it up on the internet, I thought there may be one or two others out there as forgetful as me who also may appreciate some instructions.

Start off with a rectangle or oblong shape piece of paper.

Fold it in half.

Fold the corners across to the center. They will not go all the way to the bottom – this is correct.

Fold up the bottom sections of paper and you have a hat, simple as that!
