COLOUR MATCHING (my favourite thing!):

I can help you select what colours of tissue paper, plastic, or metallic foil to choose for your bunting banners. I LOVE colour matching to customers’ colour pallets! Just send me your bouquet photo, mood boards, or photo ideas, etc. for a wedding, or any corporate stationary or logos for events. I will reply straight away with some ideas of what colours might look best. If you send me a list of colour numbers from my Colour Selector I will send you photos of the actual tissue paper swatches, so you can see which you like best.


To hang the papel picado bunting, just tie the string at both ends end to a wall, post, tree, or curtain rail, with cellotape or a tack. To make longer garlands, tie the banners together at each end; to make them shorter, just tear off the excess flags and cut the string down to the desired length.

“Aprylle is an absolute star and definitely one of the very best people I have had the pleasure of dealing with via Etsy. She was super attentive to our custom wedding order of papel picados & even helped us match the paper colours to the flowers picked out by our florist (!). The papel picados she sent us were absolutely beautiful & much loved by all of our guests, as they were used to deck out a marquee in the middle of a Norman castle in Wales. I'm sure we were on the 'demanding' end of anxious soon-to-be-wed customers, but Aprylle was super patient with us & helped inject some creative flair & savour faire that really helped set our party off. Thank you Aprylle” Jack G R
