I am in a swap where you make a pinata and stuff it full of crafty goodness for your partner. Talk about taking me back to childhood! You were to take a smallish ballon and cover it in tissue paper then pop and remove it, cut open the top, insert the fun stuff then cover the hole - if all goes according to my plan when she pulls the "handle" the top should come off, but I wonder if it will work since that decoupage is tough stuff - she might need a saw!
She likes purple so there are 2 spools of purple trims, I made a mini book and there is some purple glitter glue. She also collects magnets so of course I had to send an Ohio State one - there is also a box of Zots (glue dots), foam pop-up squares, a little bling, tea and candies...it's full and I nearly didn't get the Zots in because the box was toooooooo big but I cut a bigger hole and crammed it in there LOL 
UGH - it's freezing here, one day we have 84 degrees and today it is windy with the high to be in the 40's...what the heck?!? Doing a Mexican Hat dance and missing Hilton Head.......................at the Shores

And what exactly is it you DON'T do??? LOL!!!
Love this idea, and your pinata is too cute.
When I was in 8th grade in Ft. Huachuca, I paid 10 cents to enter a drawing for a pinata & I won twice in a row. I obviously haven't forgotten. :)
