Follow these instructions (and the video) to make a cap out of paper! 

Instructions (see video for details/example)

What You Will Need

  • paper
  • scissors
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • markers/paint/etc.

Step #1 

Glue two 8.5″ x 11″ pieces of paper together lengthwise with a one-inch overlap to make a single piece of paper that is 21″ long.

Step #2

Trim the paper to 5.5″ tall.

Step #3

Mark a line 2cm from the bottom edge.

Make six 8cm markings from the right edge of the paper.

Make a mark at the top edge of the paper 4cm from the right edge –
from that mark, make five 8cm markings moving to the left.

Use a straight edge to connect the top and bottom marks to form connecting triangles.

Step #4

Cut out the top spaces, leaving the bottom strip and upward-facing triangles.

Step #5

Glue the left tab underneath the right edge.

Glue two opposite triangle points together, stacking the three pairs at the center of the cap.

Step #6

For the visor, trace an arc on another sheet of paper using the cap as a guide.

Draw a rectangle the width of your cap.

Pencil another arc inside the first one, about .5″ below it. 

Step #7

Cut out the visor.

Bevel the corners.

Cut tabs along the curved edge from the bottom arc to the top arc.

Step #8

Fold the tabs upward.

Glue them to the inside edge of your cap.

Step #9

Add a logo and/or other embellishments.
