Paper Bag Pinata Craft
Making a paper bag pinata crafts creates a perfect way to be FULL of surprises and spread kindness and celebration. It is so easy peasy to make and only requires a few supplies including my favorite paper crafting adhesive, Easy Tear Tape from Therm-O-Web. I really do LOVE this stuff because it holds things together with such strength. I don’t know that anyone would want to hit the pinata because it is so cute but it still makes a great container for a gift collection. This post is sponsored by Therm-O-Web but the ideas and opinions are my own.
Before I share the how-tos for this project, I want to share that it is an idea I put in my Kindness on Purpose book. I think crafting up ways to spread kindness is a fabulous way to make a difference in the world.
Material Needed for a Paper Bag Pinata
- Paper Bag
- Scrapbook Paper
- Therm-O-Web Easy Tear Tape
- Ribbon, Raffia or Twine
- Google Eyes If Desired
Start but cutting scrapbook paper the width of your bag in width and three inches in length – enough to have one every inch and half of the total height of the bag. Cut slits on the papers leaving about 1/2 inch across the tops.
Apply strips of Easy Tear Tape from top to bottom of bag, approximately one and half inches apart.
Peel the layer off to reveal the double sticky side.Adhere the strips to the adhesive.
Roll the paper up around a pen so it curls a bit. Add google eyes and ribbon to the handle.
Fill the pinata with treats and leave it on someone’s porch as a super fun kindness surprise. Here is a list of fun ideas to put in a pinata.
- Small Game
- Sweet Treats
- Mini Puzzles
A great thing about this project is that it can be adapted for holidays, party themes and seasons. This version of a pumpkin pinata is adorable and perfect for BOOing all the houses.
Yay for Spreading Kindness!
