Printable Valentine Papel Picado Streamers

You may have noticed that we have a bit of a thing for the beautiful tissue paper garlands called Papel Picado. They are a traditional Mexican decoration used for celebrations, and they are one of our all time favorite party decorations. The intricately cut paper, elaborate patterns and bright colors are enough to make us swoon. Since it is the season of swooning we figured that we would create a Valentine’s themed papel picado, inspired by Mexican folk art, that would leave us all with weak knees! These are the perfect pop of color for all of your Valentines celebrations! 

You'll Need:

Directions:

  1. Cut out the 5 designs of Papel Picado using the templates, you can use a craft cutter for this or an exacto knife.
  2. Once you have the amount of templates you will use a hole punch to place holes at each top corner and use these to string your pieces up!
  3. Once strung separate each flag by about 2 inches.
  4. Hang up where ever your heart desires!

Tag us with #Larsmakes so we can see these at all of your Valentines festivities!
