Now hold the current pattern and open the bottom side of the pattern carefully. Hold the folds created in the last step so they remain secured. This will give the origami flat hat a 3d look.

Cut a strip and a small square paper. Cut 2 slits along 2 opposite sides of the small square and insert the strip through the slits from the same side. This will be the hat strip.
