Step 2: Once you have all pieces of your number cut out, tape them together using masking tape. Masking tape is very important as it will allow the kids to be able to break the pinata. Try not to tape too much otherwise it will be hard for the kids to break (I learned that lesson).

Step 3: After all sides are taped together, take your box cutter and cut open a flap at the top. This will be where you put your candy in.

Step 4: Next, take the colors of tissue you wish to use on your piñata and cut strips about 2 inches wide horizontally. After the strips are cut, you need to make your fringe.

      Hi! I would imagine you could as long as the paper was thin. I have seen people make them out of paper mache, but to me, this was the easiest and I am all about easy :)
