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.

Here's a small sample of their gorgeous offerings.
