Then ironed it onto the party hat, folded edges to the inside and ironed them down. Finish the inside with some seam tape or rick rack. hot glue the opening closed, hot glue the marabou around the edges & top.
Forgot to add, I know how expensive the ones are on etsy and I think it is ridiculous! I charge $10 for the ones like in the pic and $7 for ones with just a number on it. $5 for solids.
thanks for the help,since i won't make them to sell them,i think i may save myself the headache and just buy one from you,haha.my daughters birthday is months away but i will have to let you know when the time comes for me to order.
