Ahh.. December. We don't get the white Christmas here in the Bay Area, California... but it is freezing. And by freezing, I mean, it's like 50 degrees, so it's freezing by California standards. Download your December wallpaper today!

Cinco De Mayo Piñata Card Printable

Rita Garcia

Hola, mis amores! In honor of Cinco de Mayo (and half my ethnicity), go ahead and have a craft party with a little margaRITAs on the side! Most people do not know I am half Mexican, because my other ethnicity half (Filipino) is pretty dominant, however, I've always viewed myself as more Mexican and have been fascinated with the color, hospitality and vibrancy that the Mexican culture encompasses.

As a child, piñatas were always an icon of what I loved growing up (and kind of as an adult, if I'm being honest)--color and candy! I want you to have a fun and easy-to-create piñata card! Vamanos chiquitas (os) Follow along below:

SIDE NOTE: For a little historical education, Cinco de Mayo IS a Mexican holiday that commemorates the Battle of Puebla (victory over the French). So, let's celebrate the culture and not stereotype it, ok? K!

RAD_Blog_CincoDeMayo-DIY.jpg

Here's what you'll need:

  1. Piñata Card Design (see link below)
  2. Cardstock to print on
  3. Streamers (I use red, white, green... cause Viva Mexico!)
  4. Scissors
  5. Fringe scissors (although not necessary)
  6. Glue (Elmer's Glue, Hot Glue Gun) or Tape (Double sided or the glue dots)

Directions:

  1. Grab your cardstock and place it in the printer.
  2. Print out this design (see link below)
  3. Use your scissors to cut out the card.
  4. Keep the card flat, do not fold over yet.
  5. Now to the crafty part! Grab your streamers and cut them to the width of the card.
  6. Now cut the streamers in half vertically, so you'll have thin long stripes.
  7. Fringing time! If you have fringe scissors, it will go much fast and add some texture. If you don't, you'll just have to cut each fringe one-by-one. (Hint, double up the streamers)
  8. Now that you have your fringies ready, place them on the card as you please!
  9. When you're happy with the placement, bring out the glue or tape. Start at the top and make your way down. You're more than welcome to do the back of the card too!
  10. Fold over the card and MIRA! You have a piñata card!

Now grab your tequila filled margaRITA and brighten someone's day with this piñata card!

Best,
Rita
