Step 1:
Fold the square in half diagonally.
Step 2: Fold both sharp points up to the right-angled corner.
Step 3: Rotate the model 180 degrees, then fold one of the sharp points to the upper corner .
Step 4: Create the horn by folding the sharp point outwards, shown. As a guide, try folding the point so that when you have done so, the upper edge rests parallel to the horizontal center crease.
Step 5: Repeat step 4 on the other side. Then fold up a single layer of paper at the bottom, to a point approximately halfway between the top of the helmet and the center line.
Step 6: Fold bottom point to where the brim will be.
Step 7: Fold again.
Step 8: Fold again
Step 9: Fold the remaining corner on the back as steps 6, 7, and 8.
Step 10: Fold right and left side back at ends and staple down from inside. Add touches of red, white, and blue crepe paper, sparkles, and pipe cleaners.

Very clever idea for place cards. Kids could be involved in making place cards for their parties.
