Create beautiful papel picado cut paper bunting used in Mexican celebrations.

Papel picado is the Mexican folk art of bunting made from colourful hand-cut paper.

Carefully cut shapes out of tissue paper and help us to create lots of bunting to decorate the Immigration Museum in preparation for our ¡Viva Mexico! Festival.
