To go along with our
Dora party fiesta in March, I made a little banner for the top of the birthday cake. I was inspired by traditional papel picado, those beautiful, intricately cut tissue paper banners that decorate Mexican celebrations. I decided to use regular old colored construction paper instead of tissue paper because A) it gave the banner some heft and made it less fragile, and B) I had no idea how to even go about making a little banner out of cut tissue! It was a very quick little craft and made the birthday cake look extra festive.
