Decorate the table at your next fiesta with papel picado -- paper flags unfurled on holidays like Cinco de Mayo.
Martha Stewart Living, May 2006
Find papel picado (sold in rows attached to string for hanging) at crafts stores. Snip them off their string for place mats, or cut them into strips for napkin wraps. Colored flags can bleed when wet, so arrange them over a paper tablecloth to avoid stains.
