When I have time, I like to make my own birthday cards, and wanted to show you one of my favorites to make. It's great for other celebrations too, and you can choose whatever colors you want!

A blank card with a piñata outline
- A stick-on googly eye is optional but adds some extra fun
Step 1: Draw Your Outline
After you’ve gathered the supplies for your card, draw a piñata outline onto the blank card. Do yours in pencil — I've only done mine in black ink so you can see it better.
Step 2: Stick on the Crêpe Paper
Fill the piñata outline with MONO Adhesive, being careful to stay within the lines. Then stick just the top (un-fringed side) of the crêpe paper to the adhesive. Start at the bottom and work upwards, overlapping each layer.
Step 3: Clean Up
Once you’ve stuck down each layer of fringed crêpe paper, trim any pieces that go outside the lines. You can also lightly ruffle the fringed paper to make it stand out a little more.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Stick on your googly eye if you have one, and you can also add little pieces of leftover paper to the card like miniature confetti, or draw in some confetti using your TwinTone Markers, and voila it’s ready to be sent!
