Papel Picado Inspired Banner
Do you like the look of papel picado in Mexican Folk Art? I adore it and was inspired to create this project after watching the movie Coco with my kids… about 100 times, lol. Papel picado are hanging banner style decorations with elaborate images. Applying this design to an image I can create to place in my studio, I came up with a banner that spells “create” and carries an embossed look with a scalloped edge.
The six embossed panels are placed on a colored card stock base that has been die cut with the long scallop die from Seasonal Layers. I matched the inked letters to the card stock color and used a soft rainbow assortment of color. To help keep the punched holes for hanging in the proper place, I punched one unit and used it as a guide by placing it on top of each of the other units and drawing a small dot where I need to punch the hole. The Baker’s Twine was strung through the front hole, around the back of the unit and up through the opposite hole to connect with the next unit. No difficult to complete at all!
Between the panels are a sort of paper pompom to help carry the rainbow color theme and decorate the string. They are completed by punching paper with the 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I used 2 white circles and 2 colored circles. The colored circles are scored down the center and folded in half. First placing one colored circle on top of another colored circle and adhering it with a thin line of glue, then this unit is glued to one of the white circles in the same manner. By just adhering them with a thin line of glue, the sides of the circle can stand up to for a 3D pompom. Each of the pompoms are attached to the banner by first placing the remaining circle behind the twine, add glue and then place the pompom on top of this to “trap” the twine in between the glued circles. Attaching them in this manner will help keep them in place permanently. There is also a simple tassel on each end of the banner created with Silver Baker’s Twine.
