Mexican Paper Decorations

Steps:3
Papel picado is the Mexican folk art of paper-cutting. The colorful, lattice-like designs, traditionally cut into tissue paper, are made to celebrate religious festivals and national holidays. Mexican craftsmen use punches, knives, hammers, chisels, and scissors to cut holes in the tissue. Sometimes the result is a simple symmetrical design, or it may depict a scene from the Bible. The decorations are placed in windows and hung as banners. You can also use them as table runners and place mats for a Mexican-style fiesta.
Materials
  • 10-inch-by-14-inch sheets of brightly colored tissue paper
  • Decorative hole punches
  • Iron
  • Craft scissors or pinking shears
  • String
