Current Obsession: Papel Picado

What exactly are they? In English, they translate to "perforated paper", which is craft paper, or tissue paper, cut into various designs. Commonly used during Mexican celebrations, you'll often seen such intricate cut designs strung up as pretty banners. Flowers and birds are traditional motifs, but you can definitely tailor individual symbols and images to fit your wedding theme. For various ways to intertwine this decorative idea, Aymujer specializes in papel picado, from ready-made personalized and custom banners to flags and invites for weddings–there's an assortment of paper ideas available at your disposal. Here's a small sample of their gorgeous offerings.
