For this project you will need:

You will also need:

  • ribbon
  • double-sided tape / glue
  • scissors, ruler and craft knife

1. Trim one rectangle from green card measuring 9 1/4" x 4" (or 9 1/4" x 3 1/2", depending on how tall you want it to be) and add a strip of double-sided tape on one of the short sides.

3. Trace the base of the hat onto the back of the card. I used a tape roll to trace it.

4. Trace the top side of the hat. I used a smaller roll of tape for this one.

6. Use your craft knife and ruler to cut a few diagonals within the centre of the circle. For a more accurate result try to make as many sections as you can and resize the centre circle to be just a bit smaller (this will create a better fit when gluing inside the tube).

9. Embellish the hat to finish.

I decided to add some wide ribbon on one of them tied in a big bow. For another hat I created a belt using the black and glitter card. Have fun with it!

You can add the top hat onto a headband or a hair clip.
