Your first step is to make the party hat. Roll the hat piece into a cone shape, tuck in the tabs, and then tape elastic string to the bottom of the party hat on the right and left side of hat.

Next, create your decorations for the hat. I decided to make a bow, but you can also use a pom pom or tissue fringe for the top of the hat.

Glue the pieces to the hat and now you have an adorable Bark Day Pawty Hat for your doggie!

Now onto the banner. Glue the pieces for the dog paw prints as shown below.

Now you are ready to string the banner. Use a small hole punch to punch holes in each of your banner elements, and then string twine or ribbon through the hole.
