Papercraft PARTY Hat Tutorial

Boy, have I been racking my brain lately to pull off a "cute" Robot-themed birthday party for my soon-to-be TWO little guy. I could not find robot party stuff to save my life, so I decided to make my own. Here is a super easy tutorial to make your own, customized party hats....using basic scrapbooking supplies! ENJOY!


(You will also need: tape, a large dinner plate, and a slit or hole punch)

Very cute! My son had a robot party for his 4th birthday (which was 1.5 years ago) and I had such a hard time with that theme. Robots are cute but not as popular as I had thought. I got lucky and found a foam craft buckets of robots at Micheal's that the kids got to make. And I made my own robot cake - two 8x8 sheet cakes cut into various sized squares and I used mini chocolate donuts for the arms, trying to make it look a little like corrugated pipes. Then a bunch of gears in different shapes and sizes cut from silver and black paper plates decorated walls and such.
You are so creative, I'm sure your going to do a great job with the party. Good luck! Happy birthday to your little guy.
