It is not every day I get to introduce one of my family members on a professional level in this space. And when an opportunity comes along, nothing makes me happier than showing off a gem from my homestead to the world and making a proper introduction here at the blog!
Ria is my cousin and a gifted crafter. She has an incredible presence on Youtube where she shares her passion for simple crafts made with everyday materials.Her channel, Crafts by Ria showcases paper crafts, tissue paper crafts and origami tutorials among other things.
Did I mention they are beautiful? Hey, I am not biased in my opinion since she is my cousin and all but I can’t help comment on a good talent when I see one. And Crafts by Ria certainly fits the bill. If DIY and crafting is your thing I recommend Crafts by Ria. She is also starting a blog shortly to house her ever-growing stash of crafts, and I am understandably excited about it!

3. Cut each of them along this line and unfold them. Now, draw a small line (approx. 1 cm) through the middle crease from the top and connect it to the right side to form a small triangle shape and cut it off.
4. Apply glue over the small triangle left at the top and bring the right wing of the heart towards it and stick over it. Do it for all the three. Now connect all the three together and stick it inside the card. Make sure you leave some space from the center crease of the card.
5. Apply glue on its top and close the card. Press it firmly so that it sticks well.
Open the card and you are left with a beautiful pop-up card!
Add some decorative stickers and stick a ribbon using the hot glue gun. You know, so you can make it prettier 🙂
