photo party hats

I used this adorable picture of mr. roundy...

to make the party hats you see here.

This party essential was so easy to make I don't think I will ever buy these at the store again!  On a 8½ x 11 piece of card stock I printed the above picture of mr. roundy.  I then printed a template for the hat shape, downloaded from Martha Stewart, also on card stock.  I cut out the template and traced the shape onto the desired part of the picture.  Cut out the shape and use a blade to cut the slots as identified on the template. After assembly be sure to tape the slotted closure.

The directions suggest using 8 inches of elastic cord for the hat.  I measured my own head to estimate the desired size for adult {you will need to adjust the size if the hat is for children}.  I followed the instructions and attached the elastic cord with tape.  Unfortunately that technique didn't last the whole night.  My suggestion would be to hot glue the elastic cord to guarantee it will stay put.

Your hats turned out so cute! I read on Martha Stewart's blog to use legal paper rather than 8 1/2 x 11. Did your hats turn out small or were they just right?
