Mini Piñata Holiday Gift Boxes

Hello friends, Aly here with you again. Our darling new Mini Piñatas are perfect for parties, but if you need a last minute gift packaging idea, the Mini Piñatas make perfect gift boxes for small toys or goodies too.

To make these mini piñata holiday gift boxes I first threaded a 12″ length of raffia through the holes in the flaps, and then covered the boxes with some black and white paper from some of my favorite older We R collections.

Then I added some gold Fringe Tape around the edges and embellished the tops of the boxes. I used my 123 Punch Board to create a medium size paper bow for the first box.

Then I layered a gold bow from the Clearly Posh collection on top, and added a few bits of gold DIY Party Confetti.

To embellish the second box I created a festive paper poinsettia using the reverse punch of my Flower Punch Board.

I punched five 1 1/2″ squares and five 1″ squares, and then punched them into leaf shapes. Then I curled them with the curling tool from my Flower Punch Board, and layered them on the front of the box. To create the center, I rolled a 4″ strip of gold Fringe Tape, trimmed it, and hot glued it to the center of the poinsettia. Then I added some small white enamel dots around it.

To finish off my gift boxes, I printed the words “pull here” on plain white cardstock, cut them into 3 1/2 x 1 strips, and punched them with the DIY Party Tag Punch. Then I tied them onto the raffia I had threaded through the flap openings.
