Firstly, the party was that day, secondly a quick trip to the local shops turned up nothing satisfactory, thirdly, I'm not a big one for sewing and didn't have the know-how or supplies to make a fabric hat.Then the idea struck to make a paper top hat. I made up a quick maquette, then got to work on the design on my computer, finally printing out my little burlesque creation. A few snips and the wave of a glue stick and a darling little hat was ready. I secured it safely to my head with a bobby pin and was good to go. When my fellow party goers saw my handy work I was swiftly commissioned to make two more. And so we set off to the party feeling dandy and in high spirits and it's safe to say the hats were a big hit at the party.About the AuthorAlong with her husband Harry Ellen runs Happythought, an online store and blog full of craft ideas and fun printable paper crafts.
