Holy Piñatas! These are the piñata variety that you do NOT dare pummel! They were made with so much love and care that it's simply sacrilege to even think about taking a stick to it.
1. Collect your materials.
Recycled corrugated cardboard boxes and cereal boxes, colored tissue paper, glue, masking tape and scissors.
The basic construction is comprised of 3 parts. 2 identical sides and a long band that connects both sides together to transform the shape into a 3-dimensional structure. The band should be made of a bendable material or lighter weight board paper - ideally cereal box. Tape together with masking tape.
I cut colored tissue paper into 2" wide strips. As I stacked them together, I made vertical cuts at about 1 cm apart.
Start at the bottom and always work your way up!!
5. Final Touches.
Once the fringes have been glued down, you can embellish with colored paper to make elements such as eyes, mouth, ears, bowtie, belt, etc...
