Party Hat Tutorial

Sweet Jillian of the fab party site Catch My Party asked me to put together a little tutorial on the party hats I made for Peyton's Sweet Shoppe Party.  I thought you might enjoy it too! Jillian was also so sweet and had Peyton's party as one of the parties of the day!  It's wonderful site to get ideas, definitely check it out!  There are other examples HERE that I made if you want more inspiration!

  To make these hats, you will need:


a couple sheets of coordinating scrap book paper 12 x 12
cardstock
matching cupcake wrapper (optional)
glue gun and glue
embellishments
chipboard monogram
matching ribbon
matching festooning      available at Bake It Pretty and Party Cheap


First go through your scrap paper and see what you have that might go together well and look for matching embellishments. Oh and by the way don't look at my horribly dry hands in these photos! ;-) THANKS!
I love the funky colorful pattern on this paper


black, white and pink is so graphic and cool

I love pink and orange, I think it has something to do with Dunkin Donuts!


I love pink and green


I chose this one because I love the cherry blossoms and the vintage feel of the paper











I used an antique crochet millenry flower, a hat pin and cream colored paper pima flowers and a few gems





Pretty EASY and so PRETTY!
If you make a party hat, PLEASE let me know, I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE for you to share it with me!

Hi Robyn,
I love these party hts!!
I have a friend who makes them for her News years parties!! In all black, whites, and silvers!! They look soooo! cool when she passes them out to ever one with matching poppers and horns :)

I think if you had a Shepherds hut in your garden it would be put to great party use, a perfect place to create and storeage as well as including it into the party theme.

Thank you for your beautiful visit, and comment :)

Blessings to you and your family :)
