Being able to fold a nurse's hat is a quick way to create a Halloween or work party costume. All it takes is some paper and a few basic steps.
Things You'll Need
- White paper, 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches
- Colored paper, if desired
Attach two pieces of 8 1/2-inch by 11-inch white paper together along the short edge. This can be used for a child- or adult-sized hat.
Fold paper in half, having the folded edge at the top.
Find the center of the paper; fold the upper-right-hand corner down along the center, leaving about a 2-inch border along the bottom.
Repeat with the upper left hand corner. You should end up with a triangle and a 2-inch border along the bottom edge.
Fold the tip of the triangle down to meet the edge that was formed by the triangle piece. You should still have a 2-inch border along the bottom edge. You may glue this piece down, if desired.
Grabbing the bottom edge of the top layer only, fold up the 2-inch border. Turn the hat over and repeat on the other side.
Open the hat, manipulating it gently to shape it and form light creases. Embellish the front, as desired.
