Plan and Prep. Choose your colour scheme and your product. If you would like to replicate the design we have featured in this project, simply refer to list above. This tutorial will assume you’ve selected these items.
Pinata Prep. Wrap your mini favour box with the coloured tissue paper. Be sure to wrap the top of the box separately so that your guests can open the package.
Create the fringe. Use two lengths of Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Techno Pink ensuring you cut them long enough to circle all the way around your mini favour box. Overlap them to create a wider strip then fold it horizontally, sticky side in leaving about 1/8 in. or so of stickiness still exposed. When creating the Scotch® Expressions Masking Tape, Lime Interlock fringe simply fold the length of tape. The width is sufficient with the masking tape.
Cut the tassels. To create the tassels on your fringe use your Scotch® 8″ Precision Stainless Steel Scissors and cut slits just up to the exposed sticky edge, all along the length of your folded tape.
Layer the fringe. Once you have created your fringe in a few colours, layer them in the center of your mini favour box. This design used three strips, alternating between Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Techno Pink and Scotch® Expressions Masking Tape, Lime Interlock.
Add your string: Don’t forget to tuck your coloured string into the lid of the favour box to carry the mini piñata theme right through. Fill your mini piñata with your favourite themed candy.
EXPERT TIP. Use your selected tapes to carry the colour theme through the rest of your table setting. It’s easy to create a custom look by simply adding a little touch here and there.
