Featured this week: DIY Christmas cards—fast and easy!

  • Wednesday Treat: Translucent decorations with candles, angels and more!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a craft for making Stained Glass-like Christmas Decorations that can be used to decorate windows or as ornaments on the Christmas tree. This is a great family craft, and, best of all, these large and colorful circular hangings can be used year after year to bring festive joy to your home!

    Come back on Friday for a new Friday Fun craft project!

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Easy to make felt ornaments!

    Cookie Cutter Felt Ornaments - Simple and durable ornaments can be made with cookie cutters, felt, and imagination. No sewing is required! The cookie cutters are used as templates for making the ornaments—or, use Aunt Annie's printable pattern with Christmas-themed templates.

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a new 2019 dodecahedron calendar pattern. Make a 3-dimensional calendar for 2019 to give as a gift or set on your desk in the coming year. This 12-sided, dodecahedron is made following the instructions in the Platonic Solids craft project.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Cookie cutter ornaments that smell of cinnamon!

    Cinnamon Clay Recipe - This recipe makes a sweet-smelling dough that can be made into ornaments or package decorations. Just mix together applesauce, cinnamon, and a bit of glue to create a clay that is perfect for rolling out and cutting shapes with cookie cutters.

Greeting card tutorials

Greeting card tutorials are a regular feature on Aunt Annie's Crafts. Each tutorial builds on prior card projects. It's like taking a class on making handmade greeting cards.

This month's featured card tutorial is  Fall and Winter Quilling Cards with card ideas that build on the Basics of Quilling and shows how to decorate easy-to-make Four Patch Cards with quilling motifs. If you are new to card making, the tutorials in the Card Class are a great place to learn many techniques for making beautiful cards. Then for more ideas and techniques, go on to Card Class 2.
