Fold the the top 1/3 of the sheet of paper down. This forms a brim.

Cut at a 45-degree angle from the bottom corners of the paper. Cut towards the center of the page, leaving an inch or two between the ends of the cuts.

Place the paper with the brim face down on the table.

Bring down the two outer triangles that were formed. Bend the central triangle over both of them to form the cap.

Secure the three layers in the back together with a brad or a piece of tape.
