Make it Monday - Fit for a Princess!

Happy Monday!  One of my favorite little girls turned one this past week and I had the pleasure of creating the party hats for her "princess" themed celebration.  I made about 30 hats for the boys and girls and it was super easy with this party hat template from Jones Company Designs here

 I just picked out several sheets of coordinating scrap paper (great way to use up the stash) and cut it down to 8 1/2 x 11.  I then printed the template directly onto the paper, cut, and rolled the paper into a cone.  I stapled it together but you can also use double sided tape or hot glue.  For a little added cuteness, I hot glued a pom pom to the top :)   I attached about 15 inches of elastic jewelry cord (from the craft store) or you can use cord from the fabric store by stapling to the inside of the hat.  You can also use hot glue for this. 
Here's the little princess having her cake...can you believe she rocked that hat for most of her party?  For the birthday girl's hat, I added a little basket shred to the bottom and a Mind's Eye title to the front.
