How to make a DIY Pinata Invitation!

1 – Print out 2 of the pinata printable and cut them out. Glue them together with the directions on the printable.

  1. I tried to make this pinata but your instructions are very vague. I had a hard time getting the string that suspends the pinata to stay in place, and experienced many issues when trying to get the pinata to burst open without it falling to the ground. What glue do I use? What kind of tape seals the bottom? What holds the slits at the bottom together so the confetti doesn’t slide out? Am I supposed to use card stock? Also the pictures in the beginning for the template do not match the PDF that I received. It shows the glue tab with separated slits yet that is not in the PDF. Please get back to me on how to make this correctly, I ended up crushing the pinata out of frustration.

    1. I’m so sorry, Abigail! This was created by Sara, a former contributor of ours. You can find her @ConfettiSunshine and where you can directly email her and perhaps she has the updated PDFs and can answer these questions for you. Again, so sorry!
