Mexican Fiesta | Piñata inspired party favor bags

Robbie’s third birthday was this month, and we decided to try a Mexican Fiesta theme this year! I got some cool little sombreros, a huge cactus balloon, and a taco balloon; a cute Mexican garland, and colorful paper flowers. When it was time to create the baggies for guests, I thought about classic Mexican piñatas, and decided to give these bags a try!

You’ll need:
♡ Paper bags (I used 5.25×2.75×8.5″ bags)
♡ Crepe paper
(if you need to cut the paper, make sure it’s cut into 2″ strips)
♡ Glue stick
♡ Scissors

I bought paper bags and crepe paper of different colors from the Dollar Tree store.

The crepe paper I bought was already cut in 2″ streams. For cutting the fringe, I took a strand, folded it, and then cut 3/4 of the way up into a wide fringe.

I proceeded to paste the strands overlapping them, one by one on the bags. I did not really follow a color pattern. I just made sure to put two of each color before switching color of the strips to make them pop more.

I cut any leftover paper from the side after I was done, so that the bags looked more even on the edges. Children won’t care if the paper doesn’t look perfect on their little piñata bags. No one would!

The day of the Fiesta!

I loved working on these bags for my son’s birthday party. I got tons of compliments, too!

I hope you make them! Let me know what you think!
