Papel Picado

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!

How stickin awesome are those! I will be trollin etsy for Meican Folk Art flags now….my husband will be delighted :sarcasm: 😉

Cinco de Mayo is my FAVORITE holiday, and this decorating tip will be put to good use, thanks!

These are all really beautiful. I had never heard of papal picado. However whether it is Cinco De Mayo or not it’s a great way to decorate an outdoor space for a BBQ. They are all so pretty and delicate!
