During summer custom wedding papel picado orders skyrocket as does oilcloth that we cut for patios, parties & restaurants. It amuses us that our gorgeous custom papel picado banners are made in a small agricultural village in southern Mexico and end up in fancy weddings in castles in Scotland, museums in Austin and missions in Santa Barbara. Some couples take it back down to Cancun for their spectacular weddings on the Mayan Riviera. Our custom oilcloth tablecloths wind up on cruise ships, bistros in Sao Pablo Brazil, movie sets in England and famous Mexican restaurants.

Summer's almost over. The warm, sunny days crescendo Labor Day weekend, when we're supposed to put away the white peddle pushers and finish buying school clothes. Annoying TV reruns are almost over — which actually means you have a good 2 weeks to dedicate evenings to making sugar skull blanks for your Day of the Dead parties & school projects!
Get 'em done and stack 'em up! 44 Original Medium Skulls come from a ten pound bag of sugar. Should take about an hour to whip out during a one hour episode of Rizzoli and Isles. Contemplate the satire of life and death… then store the skull blanks in a cardboard box and you'll be really prepared for Day of the Dead on November 1 & 2!
Thank you for your business and for supporting beautiful handmade folk art. And if anyone knows the new Pope, please ask him to create a patron saint of the Internet!
