MATERIALS NEEDED: 

  • free printable template (download below)

  • string, ribbon or twine
  • crepe paper streamers, optional

DIRECTIONS: 

  1. Download and print as many copies of the mini piñatas from your computer onto heavy cardstock as you need.
  2. Fold the cardstock on the marked lines, and assemble the piñata by using the double-sided tape so it stays in place.
  3. Be sure to attach the string or yarn to the inside before you close up the last side.
  4. Fill the piñata with whatever you want inside. This can be small pieces of candy, invitations to a party or whatever else you want.
  5. You can leave them as-is, or cut and fringe some crepe paper streamers to add some dimension to each one.
