Papel Picado

SUPPLIES NEEDED

TISSUE PAPER (recycled is fine!)
yarn or string
Kid Scissors
Tape

Step 1

FOLD THE tissue paper in half lengthwise
fold the paper again lengthwise
you can fold multiple pieces at once
you can mix different colors

Step 2

CUT SHAPES along the sides
avoid the top – it’s easier to hang
*when making a shape, only cut 1/2 on a fold
Example: 1/2 heart will open to a full heart

Step 3

this design shows scalloped edges
remember to avoid the top
add additional small cuts & shapes
scalloped edges look great!

Step 4

this design makes large shapes
*only fold tissue paper in 1/2 once
these are often flowers & hearts
remember to scallop the edges

Step 5

unfold to reveal shapes
admire your designs just like snowflakes, no two are alike
This is your chance to get creative!

Step 6

add finished project to string or rope
carefully attach with tape
remember tissue paper is fragile…
especially when using single sheets

STRING SEVERAL TOGETHER TO MAKE A BANNER DECORATION!
