This was pretty easy (well for me, I had my fiancee do the hard work).
Diaper Box (base)
I used a diaper box for the base of the pinata. We then took Mod Podge and pasted 3 coats of red tissue paper on the box.
For the “bumps” we used Dixie cups and covered them in Mod Podge, then adhering them onto the top. Mod Podge is great, extremely sturdy and dries clear so you don’t have to worry about a white glue mess on your final product.
I then cut a square out of the bottom to fill it. I then stapled curing ribbons to create pull strings for the kids and just had the kids pull all the strings at once (I mean really they only care about what’s inside).
I found these “brick” candies at a local candy store but you can buy these online at Amazon.com
I used the Lego Thick font and printed the sayings out on yellow cardstock.
I just happened to stumble upon the Lego stickers at Walmart on clearance for only $.25. It was a killer deal!
The party bags were really easy, the robots on the front represent the “building” of the party.
The cartridge I used was the Birthday Cakes cartridge (Cricut Cake Cartridge, works in all Cricut machines). I bought the red bags at Target in the lunch bag section for less than $2 and adhered them with some glue dots.
