Valentine's Day Paper Crafts from Giochi di Carta

Pretty pictures ahead! Silvia Raga and I met via Facebook and I knew the moment I spotted these photographs that I would introduce her lovely work here on the blog.


Silvia grew up in Milan, Italy where she studied illustration and graphic design.


She married, moved to Rome, and worked as a professional illustrator for a decade before relocating to an Italian seaside town to raise her young family.


Silvia is drawn to paper crafting - she creates exquisite paper cuttings by hand and designs projects to teach in workshops.



As a graphic designer, Silvia creates custom invitations, birth announcements, and cards, as well as dimensional items for home decor and parties.



Gift wrapping is another one of her talents. Each idea looks so fresh!


Silvia shares snippets of daily life and occasional tutorials on her blog Giochi di Carta (which translates to Card Games) and Facebook page. These cupcake liner flowers would be just right for a Valentine's Day or spring party. Silvia's Big Cartel shop is also called Giochi di Carta, where you can see more of her paper cuttings and illustrations.


Have a wonderful weekend! I have a little jewelry project I've been meaning to try with paper string... I'm curious to see if it will work!
