I made these ninja turtle mask/party hats theres a funny story behind the ninja turtles
when my son which is now going to be 26 loved ninja turtles so his girlfriend which he is going to kill ha is throwing him a suprise ninja turtle party just grown= ups. So I made these instead of actual party hats.
