Here’s what you do:
1. For the side panel, take 12 sticks and lay them side by side.
2. Using hot glue, attach one craft stick across them about ¼ inch from the tops and another craft stick across them about ¼ inch from the bottoms.

3. Repeat that process for a second side panel.
4. For the base, you need to cut 6 sticks in half so you have 12 pieces.

5. Lay these side by side and glue one stick across them about ¼ inch from the tops and another craft stick across them about ¼ inch from the bottoms. This should look just like the side panels except smaller.
6. Decorate the panels using your washi tape any way you like.
