Measure the side of the hat and cut your paper. I chose the Copious paper ~ Authentique. I then cut into the strip of paper to the right of each black line so I could manipulate the paper to fit.

I adhered the side papers with Ranger's Multi Medium.

I adhered Petaloo's Fancy Crocheted trim around the hat with Fabri~Tac, along with cording as I needed to hide where the cut paper did not fit exactly.
