Thinking of what to get a friend or family member for a special occasion? Often times this seems like a monumental task, but in this tutorial I'll show you how to make a mini pinata that ANYONE would love to receive as a gift! Packed with candy and home-made goodness, what's not to love?

Let's get started!

Step 1: Materials

For this project, you will need

card stock or cardboard

Ruler (or any straight edge)

masking tape (avoid scotch tape)

tissue paper (the kind used for gift bags)

Elmer's white school glue

candy or other small surprises to put inside

string or yarn

scissor ot exacto knife

<p>You can use these for any celebration! </p>
<p>can we use paper instead of card stock or card board? i cant get that stuff so yeah</p>
do you have cereal boxes lying around? Those would be perfect!
<p>So cute!</p>
