I am making a year round dia de los muertos altar and this is what I have made so far for the papel picado...more will be coming. The first one is a sugar skull, the second is 2 angel skeletons...the angel skeleton one says "paz" which means peace in Spanish...

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

Those are amazing!  I love them.  I made a few for a library program for school-aged kids, and those were hard enough for me.  Yours are very intricate.

Did you use scissors, an exacto, or the traditional chisel?

I used an exacto knife...I saw the chisel after the fact, but I am not sure if it would make things more difficult, or facilitate the process. I think perhaps on the smaller details it might make things easier but am not sure...I am kind of in need to figure out a better way of doing this when I make them on tissue paper...since tissue paper is much more fragile than copy paper.
