Complete with instructions from Patrick Page, 12 Fulwood Place, London WC1. In 2023 there was a video of Pat performing this on the 1970s/1980s Canadian Series The Magic Palace.

The magician takes a folded newspaper and snips away pieces from it. Eventually the remainder is unfolded and it turns out to be a hat made from newspaper. The instructions are copyright Patrick Page 1984.
