Papel Picado literally means 'perforated paper' and is a very traditional banner that is used all over Mexico, to adorn weddings, churches, baptisms, quinceaneras, and fiestas.
Each banner is handmade out of tissue paper or plastic. (please choose material at checkout). Each flag is then glued to the string and assembled by hand to create the garland. Each flag depicts folk art images: birds, flowers, sun, food and nature. The bright and lively colors represent the vibrant and rich culture that is Mexico!
This listing is for a pack of 5 LARGE banners at a discounted price. Each banner has 10 multicolored flags. Each flag is 19"x13" inches.
Each banner is 16' feet long.
