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: A self-closing bag for gifts or party favors!

  • Easy Party Favor Bag - In this project learn how to make a small party favor bag that is self-closing. These easy to make bags are ideal for packaging small party favors of food, candy, soaps or jewelry. Choose from three sizes of printable patterns with or without the colorful dot designs.

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

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Accordion-fold paper doll chains!

    Paper Doll Chains - Create a chain of paper dolls by cutting multi-folded paper strips. Learn this basic paper cutting technique with paper dolls, then let your imagination run wild! Cut paper chains with themes for every season and every special event. They make great decorations for parties, classrooms and your home.

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

Featured last week: Finger puppets and a play from Australia!

  • Two-Finger Puppets - Try this "handy" little project to put on a quick, fun and easy puppet show! Your fingers will become the legs of little bird puppets. Then, put on the Australian Aboriginal folktale The Medicine-man to find out how the rooster got his comb!

  • Wednesday Treat: New printable peacock finger puppet patterns!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a set of new printable peacock puppet patterns with finger puppets in three sizes. Make the puppets following the directions in the Two-Finger Puppets craft project, and then put on a play based on a Lao folktale that features a peacock and a crow.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Make a creepy, crawly spider for Halloween!

    Creepy-Crawly Spider Bracelet - Make a creepy, crawly spider that can wiggle and twist about with a few movements of the wrist. Traced fingers are the basis for this animated spider toy, and a paper fastener allows it to swivel around. This is a fun and easy Halloween project that is especially good for mixed-age groups of children.

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 tutorial is Dangler Cards and is the fourth tutorial in Card Class 2! Have fun making these freestanding, novelty cards that feature a dangler that spins and twists. If you are new to card making, review all the tutorials in  the first Card Class to learn many techniques for making beautiful cards and then go on to Card Class 2 for more card-making ideas and techniques.
