Make Washi tape bunting with an un-bark-ably cute puppy pattern

Bunting is a tried and true way to decorate for a party or add a bit of whimsy to a wall. Not only is it easy and inexpensive to make, but it's a soothing way to pass an afternoon. Washi tape in half a dozen different designs gives this classic decoration a fun refresh.
This bunting features a bevy of adorable puppies on one side and a bouquet of blooms on the other. Hang it with the flower side showing on days that call for a touch of femininity. Flip it over to the side with dogs when it's Bowser's birthday or the next time friends come over for a puppy playdate.

Instructions
1. Fold over the short edge of a piece of printer paper. Cut a triangle into the paper with one edge of the triangle along the fold.
2. Unfold the triangle and place it flat on the table so that it makes two triangles. Use the corgi Washi tape to cover one triangle. Fold any excess bits of tape over and onto the back of the triangle.
3. Use the sunflower Washi tape to cover the other triangle. Fold any excess bits of tape over and onto the backside.
4. Turn the triangles over so the white side is facing up. Put a line of hot glue along the fold of the paper. Place the twine on the hot glue with a few inches of excess twine off to the side. Outline one of the triangles with hot glue, fold the other triangle over and press down. Allow it to dry.
5. Repeat steps 1 through 3 eight more times so that you have three triangles with corgis on one side and sunflowers on the other, three triangles with poodles and palm fronds, and three triangles with chihuahuas and blue flowers.
6. Glue the triangles to the twine as in step 4. Put the triangles in this order: corgis, poodles, then chihuahuas. Repeat the pattern until the bunting is complete.
