DIY Papel Picado Kit //
This is a DIY Papel Picado Kit. "Papel picado" (literally, "punched paper") is a traditional Mexican craft made of brightly colored paper cut into elaborate designs. The kit contains 12 pieces of tissue paper, a yard of string, and a pattern (which doubles as the envelope). The cardstock envelope was laser cut from an Adobe Illustrator file I designed. The wraparound cover is printed with instructions on the inside which can be accessed once opened.
