If you’re just now joining us, you are in for SUCH fun. From a pretty Mexican inspired tablescape to homemade tortillas the best pork tacos you’ve ever had, we’re feasting on what is sure to be your weekend plans. And, I’m sorry but the Papel Picado Placemats were like almost the best part. These little babies took our table ideas to a whole new place of fun and totally incorporated our Mexican inspired theme throughout even the most basic of details. I love, love, love the way these turned out and can’t wait to try them with different colors and styles.

Papel picado placemat template

instructions
step-1 Download & print out our papel picado placemat template.

step-2 Gather 4 sheets of tissue paper and cut to 11”x17”. Fold the paper in half to be 8½ x11”. Stack the template on top of the crepe paper and tape the top edges together with masking tape.

step-3
Cut around the outside edge of the template (but leave the top edge in place).

step-4 Begin to cut out the shapes along the folded edge. Fold again to access the shapes in the middle (fold down the center of one or more shapes in a row). Having trouble visualizing? Check out this cute video for a clearer picture.

step-5Remove the masking tape and unfold and separate your placemats. Set out on your table and secure with a little double stick tape.
