I get very excited about Cinco de Mayo. The food. The bold colors. The music. It gets me pretty ramped up. Or maybe it’s the huge pitcher of sangria that gets me ramped up. Either way, I’m in the mood for a fiesta.
Today, I’m taking some of the quintessential components of Cinco de Mayo and translating them into a few party-worthy projects that you can use year-round.
Oh…my beloved mason jars. How do I love thee! And I love thee so much more when thee are filled to the brim with wine and decorated with tassels.
For this Cinco de Mayo inspired ensemble, I created a color coordinated trio of projects starting with the tissue tassels on each jar. They are the perfect amount of sass for these little jars.
And of course you’ll need something to sip from, right? This is where the Favor Flags dies come in handy! Of course you can stamp them with fun sentiments using By the Glass Sentiments stamp set, or…
The final piece of my ensemble is probably my favorite. Papel picado is a traditional decoration for Cinco de Mayo, but unless you already have a die for this, creating a banner of “perforated paper” can be a tad time consuming. By using my Doily die, I created the illusion of perforations.
