I got married in Los Cabos, Mexico so our wedding party upon our return was Mexican inspired. The only thing that was missing was something I love...papel picado. It's a traditional folk art from Mexico that involves cutting out intricate designs on tissue paper, which is then strung up like a banner. Artisans used to take years to learn the laborious process of cutting out the images with a scissor, one that is now expedited by using a machine. You can even get them customized to read the perfect message for any event.
