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: Simple flexagon with a hidden side inside!

  • Tri-tetraflexagons - In this project, you'll make the tri-tetraflexagon which is one of the simplest and easiest to make flexagons. It looks like a simple paper square with a front and a back, but hidden inside is another side (or face) that is revealed by folding the square in half and flexing it.

    Come back on Wednesday for a new craft treat and later in the week for a new Friday Fun craft!

  • Wednesday Treat: New marbled digital paper to download!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a Marbled heart stones digital paper download! Use it to to make Four Patch Cards or other greeting cards in the Greeting Card Class Tutorials. This is the fifth ePaper in the Marbled Paper series.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Learn colors and color mixing with this toy!

    Spy Glass Color Wheel - Use red, blue and yellow cellophane to make a color wheel that teaches about combining the primary colors. Have your child see how many colors can be made by overlapping the cellophane layers. To see even more colors, the color wheel doubles as a spy glass that your child can look through to make the colors around them change.

  • Four Patch Cards - Use this simple card making idea to create two beautiful greeting cards from a single 6" by 6" sheet of decorative paper. With this versatile technique you can make great looking card designs with ease! This tutorial also includes how to make card blanks and envelopes.

  • Wednesday Treat: Colored gift tag patterns in all sizes!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a set of colored gift tag patterns for Miniature Frame Gift Tags. When you don't have colored paper or no paper in the color you want, try the colored gift tag patterns in all sizes and many colors. You might also try printing a digital paper on white paper before printing the gift tags on the reverse side.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: An outdoor game that is fun to make and play!

    Ring Toss Game - Make rings and stakes for the game of ring toss. Find out how far and how accurately you can throw a set of rope rings with the classic game of ring toss. Play it inside at a party, or outdoors at a picnic or cookout! Aunt Annie includes a set of rules so everyone knows how to play.
