Printable Papel Picado Streamers

DIY Papel Picado StreamersYou’re probably familiar with the beautiful tissue paper garlands that you commonly see at traditional Mexican celebrations. It’s a decorative craft made from intricately cut paper, often showcasing very elaborate designs and bright colors. An inspiring example of Mexican folk art, we love the depictions of birds and fun florals. They can be a little tricky to come by so we wanted to create our own designs that we could customize to whatever color palette we wanted! We originally used them in our Cinco de Mayo party here and made them mini version, but you can size them to whatever you’d like. Use these Papel Picado Streamers at your next fiesta! Cut out the patterns with a die-cut machine using our free templates or an Exacto knife and glue some twine onto the back of them. They would be the perfect decoration for any party with a fiesta feel, a backyard BBQ, or Cinco de Mayo of course!

Paris Cake Topper and Confetti

Paris Cake Topper and Confetti

Paris is without a doubt one of my favorite cities to visit. Paul and I traveled to Paris last October for a wedding and it was honestly one of the most magical trips I’ve been on. However, had I had this illustrated travel guide, “Paris in Stride: An Insider’s Walking Guide”, I’m positive my trip would have been even more wonderful! Written by Jessie Kanelos Weiner and Sarah Moroz, two passionate ex-pats who give you an insider’s scoop on the best things to see, eat, do, and experience in their adopted city! The best part about this book is the dreamy watercolor illustrations. It’s full of detailed walking maps, sites, restaurants and so much more by Jessie Kanelos Weiner! We wanted to give you a taste of her beautiful artwork so we’re offering the most charming Paris Cake Topper and Confetti, illustrated by Jessie herself, for your next soiree!

Strawberry Heart Cake Topper

Strawberry Heart Cake Topper

We’re ‘berry’ excited about this Strawberry Heart Cake Topper! However, we’re a little bummed we thought of this post-Valentine’s Day, but May is National Strawberry Month so technically we’re ahead of the game! Either way, Strawberries are appropriate all year round in my opinion, and this cake topper is no exception. Made with tissue paper, crepe paper, and wire, this is a simple project and also really fun to make! Perfect for any birthday party, baby shower, or even Mother’s Day, this Strawberry Heart Cake Topper is sure to please all.
