If you're anything like me, beautiful paper has a special lure, especially when it's as lacy, delicate and decorative as Papel Picado - the Mexican art of handcut tissue paper banners and flags. These fluttering decor accents add a festive, handmade vibe to any party, and I love the atmosphere they can add to a wedding! Here are a few fun ways to incorporate these beauties into your own wedding design...
