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!
♡ 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
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!
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!
