How to Make a Party Hat


Every birthday child needs the don the special celebratory attire of the ‘birthday hat!’

Every party package that I create includes various party hat designs that are ready for just this job!  So to make the process of assembling one of these easier, today I am sharing a step by step guide.  And if that is not help enough, I am also providing a free printable party hat of this particularly cute striped navy and white design!

To make this party hat, you will need the following…

  1. Party Hat Printable
  2. Pair of Sharp Scissors
  3. Scotch Tape/Hot Glue
  4. Ribbon
  5. Embellishments (optional)

Start of with printing you party hat on heavy white card stock (I would recommend 65lb card stock).  Using the guidelines, cut out the hat with scissors.



Once you have the party hat cut out, roll the paper into a cone shape with the dotted line side under the finished edge.


Once you’ve rolled the hat into the cone shape, tape/hot glue in place.  I used scotch tape which can look a bit of a mess, so the other option is to use a the hot glue gun for a cleaner look.  Whatever you choose, this is the back side of the hat and so…what you don’t see is no big deal :)


Next, choose a coordinating ribbon and trim two pieces to the lengths you need to tie a nice bow once on the birthday child.  Tape or Staple the ribbon to the inside of the hat and keep in mind where is the front.

I decided to make this hat from my son’s first birthday cake smash so I added a shimmer jigsaw chipboard number “1” which is made by MakingMemories (available in most scrapbooking /craft stores).  It is really up to you with how you want to embellish the hat; a pom pom on top, some fringe on the bottom.  So many ways to personalize and make it your own!

Just for a daily dose of cuteness, my littlest one in his cake smash mess!

Mad Science Party

mad science amy blog post-p001

Amy of A Dazzle Day was looking for a mad science party theme for her oldest, which would be full of fun experiments!  The science party package was designed for Amy, but as I was working on it, my son too asked for a science party!  It was really neat to see how she and I came at this party from different perspectives.  Amazing how each of us can start with the same party package theme and then the resulting parties are so unique and personal.  Here is the link to my sons Luka’s science party here.

This is what Amy had to say about the package and working with me :)

“I have the honor again to work with my favorite designer, Tania from Tania’s Design Studio @ www.taniasdesignstudio.etsy.com. She inspired me with her printable as I incorporate my design and ideas together. She’s always a breeze to work with. Thank you, Tania!”

10257999_681337601915181_6858745897811851145_o 10329670_681337668581841_1720825268960984268_o

I just loved the ribbon bow ties that she made for the party guests!  Each attendee received a lad coat, goggles, bow tie and name tag.


Amy always finds interesting ways to use the party items, for instance, hanging here are party signs, cupcake toppers as well as the “Thank you for participating in my Birthday Experiment” chocolate bar wrappers.  She never limits herself to the uses of the printables and because f that, her parties are so unique and ingenuous.


Another example of Amy thinking outside the box is her use of the mini chocolate bar wrapper designs which were punched out to make those super cute straw decals!  Those beakers used to glasses, well that is just plain awesome!


Amy designs a special birthday hat and cake for every birthday celebration.  So much care and thought go into each of her kids parties.


thanks again for sharing!
