For those who don't know, Papel Picado ("perforated paper", literally "pecked paper" in Spanish) is a decorative craft made out of paper cut into elaborate designs. It is considered a Mexican folk art (source, Wikipedia).

And it lends itself so beautifully to banners and table decor for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations!
