So, while I had a few spare minutes and some extra scrapbook paper yesterday, I decided to try whipping up some oh-so-cute party hats for L's birthday.

I have to say - they are simple, but they really came out cute! I've got 11 made...and about 17 left!

I used an old party hat I had laying around the junk hall closet to create the shape and size of my hats. I also got cheap thrifty and snagged the elastic strings off of those hats and stapled them to the ones I was making!

You can jazz these up with fabric sewn on the bottom or some pom poms, but I'm keeping it real and simple. Besides, I can't sew.

Here's my DIY tutorial.

And, elastic string - not pictured.

Now, follow the rest of these instructions.

Please, ignore my in-badly-need-of-a-manicure finger.

Pretty party hats for all!
