Px3 Part 2: Party Hats

I found the directions for these amazingly cheap and easy party hats in The Disney Party Handbook by Alison Boteler. You need 3 things: a stapler (well, 4 things if you count the actual staples separately), standard size green tissue paper, and red feathers (I got mine at Hobby Lobby).

So for about $2, you will make 10 hats. Pretty cheap, eh?

Start with a cheet of tissue paper.

First, fold it vertically. That's the long way. Step 1: fold it vertically. That’s the long way.
Then turn and fold again. (the loose ends should be at the bottom)
Step 2: turn and fold again. (the loose ends should be at the bottom)
fold each top corner in to make triangles
Step 3: fold each top corner in to make triangles
fold up one side of bottom about an inch
step 4: fold up one side of bottom about an inch
Fold it up again another inch, so it just touches the triangles.
step 5: Fold it up again another inch, so it just touches the triangles.
Repeat on the other side.
Repeat steps 4 & 5 on the other side.
Overlap each side and staple at each end.

What made these hats so great is that making them works as an activity during the party (though me & the other moms ended up making most of them), they work as a decoration during the party (little Peter Pans running all over the place), and when the party is over, they are instant party favors! Not bad for about 20cents a hat.
