Crafting fun for everyone!

Step-by-step instructions. Printable patterns. Updates each week.

Welcome to Aunt Annie's Crafts!

Take a look around. You'll find crafting fun for children, teens and adults. A craft how-to is featured each Monday, with a special craft treat added each Wednesday, and at the end of the week it's Friday Fun with simple crafts for families, groups or classrooms.

Featured this week: Lion, rabbit and sheep puppets and a play!

  • Three-Finger Puppets - Three fingers is all it takes to bring these paper animal puppets to life! Make a fierce golden lion, a timid rabbit, or a funny bighorn sheep. Your puppets can be friends or foes in any story you can imagine; or, act out the included Aesop fable, The Lion and the Rabbit.

  • Wednesday Treat: Triceratops dinosaur finger puppets!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a new craft project with printable patterns: Triceratops Finger Puppets! These puppets are easy to make—just cut, fold and glue. They go with lion, rabbit and sheep puppets in the Three-Finger Puppets craft project and the elephant puppets in the Elephant Finger Puppets craft project.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Valentine and birthday party favors!

    Paper Cup Party Favor - Half the fun of giving a party is selecting a theme and making the decorations. You can easily and quickly make party favors for any theme by decorating paper or foam cups with ribbon and images printed from your computer.

    For more family, classroom or group crafts see the Friday Fun Crafts collection!

Featured last week: Flat paper fish become 3D by weaving the tail!

  • 3D Paper Fish - In this project, make two sizes of paper fish. Weave the tails together in two easy steps to make the fish become three dimensional. The fish can be hung from the ceiling or in a window, and with the slightest breeze will dance about to the delight of all. They make great gift package toppers, too!

  • Wednesday Treat: Printable patterns for paper tulips!

    Brighten up a wintery day with colorful paper tulips!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a set of tulip patterns for making a Spring Paper Flower Bouquet with nothing but tulips!

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Finger painting for everyone!

    Finger Painting - This craft project goes over the basic steps for doing finger painting and gives tips to enhance your finger paint masterpieces. The kids (and grown-ups, too) will have great fun smearing paint on paper and creating fanciful pictures.

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 tutorials are Ribbon Edge Christmas Cards and All Occasion Ribbon Edge Cards. In these tutorials, you learn some new rubber stamping techniques and how to create a decorative cut edge that is enhanced with a ribbon backing. 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.
