I’m obsessed with the Mexican folk art tradition of papel picado and Cinco de Mayo is just one of many excuses to bring out these intricately cut flags to enliven a celebration. And although I stocked up on plenty of papel picado while in Mexico a few years ago, I’m always on the look out for more banners. If you’re in the market for some, I suggest checking out Etsy for a variety of options!
