As per Wikipedia: Papel picado (“perforated paper”) is a decorative craft made out of paper cut into elaborate designs. Although it is a Mexican folk art, papel picado is used as a holiday decoration in many countries. The designs are commonly cut from tissue paper using a guide and small chisels, creating as many as forty banners at a time. Papel picado can also be made by folding tissue paper and using small, sharp scissors.
As per me: The cuttings I do are mediations on people I love or loved. Each body part holds special memories, and when I create them, I send healing love to that person.
