Using a ruler and butter knife, score along each fold line. With the fold lines facing up, place double-sided tape on each tab. (Or use a glue-stick)
To construct the piñata, crease along each fold line then one by one, stick each tab to its corresponding panel, ensuring the tabs are on the inside of the piñata. Leave one panel open to allow for filling.
Fold the ribbon in half and tie ends together in a knot. Attach the knotted end of the ribbon loop inside the piñata with sticky tape. Attach at a corner and do not remove backing paper from tape.
Using crepe paper cut into strips for filler, pack the piñata with filler and chocolate eggs or lollies, then close the last side. Cut crepe paper into 2.5cm strips. Use scissors to cut a fringed effect along one long edge. Working one panel at a time and starting at base of panel, trim strip to size and attach with double-sided tape, fringed edge facing down. Working you way up the panel, attach more crepe paper fringing, overlapping the previous layer. Repeat for each remaining panel.
Peel off the backing and stick onto a strip of coloured card. Attach the label to the ribbon with sticky tape. Cute!
