We’ve teamed up with the Paper & Packaging — How Life Unfolds ™ campaign to bring you the latest DIY to make your last hours of 2016 a little more magical: piñata party favor boxes for your NYE party!
Gather your supplies.
We’ll start with construction paper. Using a paper cutter, cut the paper into 2-inch wide strips. Then “fringe” the paper to give it a piñata effect. No need to be exact!
Layer the fringed paper strips, starting at the bottom of the box lid. Affix each strip with double-sided tape. You’ll have some excess paper — but we’ll show you what to do with that down the road :)
After you’ve covered the full lid, turn it over and trim the excess paper. If you find this is difficult to do with scissors, try using a utility knife on a cutting mat.
Ruffle up the fringe to give the lid a 3D effect.
Add more construction paper to the side of the lid using double-stick tape.
Cover the base of the box with a contrasting paper — we used scrapbook paper here. That’s it!
Bam! A star is born. (Forgive the indulgent pun.)
Psst — all that excess fringed paper is just *asking* to be made into confetti. Get to it!
Lastly, whip together some paper crowns with paper and tape, then house all of your surprise treats in the favor box.
Be sure to gift ‘em at the beginning of your party so your pals can have fun with the goodies inside!
