Party Hat SVG

Do you have any birthday parties coming up?  Plan some cute party hats with this fun new freebie!  The hat itself requires NO gluing or taping - yes, you read that right!  If you've ever tried to glue or tape one of these together, you know what we're talking about!  Pain in the dupa (butt in Polish)!  That's why we engineered ours to be different.  It uses a simple tab and slit closure and works with SCAL1, SCAL2 and MTC.  You do, however need a 12x12 or 12x24 sized mat (sorry 12x6 sized mat users)!


Just size to 11.3" wide (keep proportions) to make a standard-sized party hat.  We suggest cutting one out of scrap paper first in case you want to make yours smaller.  Then if you want to use the included embellishments (circle and scalloped circle), just size them all to the same width.  We recommend 3.3" wide (and keep proportions again).  Make them with any paper for whatever your party theme is, and happy crafting!  (The number 3 shown is not included, but you can use your cutting software to cut any font you have.  We used Arial Black for the number 3 shown.)

    OMG!! What perfect timing! I am making invites, thank you cards, and decorations for my grandaughter’s 2nd birthday party. The theme is Yo Gabba Gabba. I just told her mommy this evening that I’ll look for a template to make her a party hat. What a surprise when I opened your email to see this week’s freebie.

    Thank you, thank you!! You made my day!!

    Thank you! I was so thrilled to see this. I wanted a birthday hat a few months ago for my granddaughter’s first birthday, but I never found one. Now I’ll be able to make her one for her second birthday.

    Thanks for the great svg files!
    I have a question though when I try to load this file I receive the following error message Failed to load the requested file. From what I can find online that usually means the file is corrupted. I’ve downloaded several times and receive the message each time. Is anyone else having this issue? It’s only with this file that I’ve had the problem.
