Papel picado ("perforated paper") is a decorative craft traditionally made out of tissue paper cut into elaborate designs. This is a plastic version which is better suited to parties in inclement weather.

Common themes includes birds, floral designs, and skeletons. They are commonly displayed for both secular and religious occasions, such as Easter, Christmas, the Day of the Dead, as well as during weddings, quinceañeras, baptisms, and christenings. In Mexico, papel picado is especially incorporated into altars during the Day of the Dead.

This traditional design is perfect for making any Mexican party feel authentic.

Strand of 10 paper flags, each 43cm x 30cm - total 5.5 metres long.
