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: Make a greeting card with a bookmark!

  • Bookmark Cards - This greeting card tutorial features a design element that is also a gift. See how to create a beautiful and functional bookmark that is the focal point for the card, while learning a simple decorative technique using markers.  This tutorial also introduces colored card blanks and tips for using them successfully in your card making.

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

  • Wednesday Treat: Printable patterns for a variation on Board Solitaire!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a set of printable patterns for a variation on Triangle Board Solitaire called Triangle-plus. The plus refers to the additional six spaces which makes the game a bit more interesting and harder to solve. A printable for a perfect solution is included.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Make a paper chain snake!

    Circly Paper Chain Snake - Link rings of construction paper together to form a long multi-colored snake that makes a terrific decoration hung from the ceiling, draped around the room, or framing a bulletin board. Turn the activity into a contest to see who can make the longest snake, create the funniest (or scariest) snake, or the most creative snake.

Featured last week: Make a board solitaire game board!

  • Triangle Board Solitaire - Solitaire isn't just a card game! In this project, you'll make a board game for one player called board solitaire or peg solitaire. The board in this project is designed for marble playing pieces, but can also be made as a "simple print, cut, and play" game board.

  • Wednesday Treat: Printable pattern with templates for cardboard looms!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a printable pattern with templates for pincushion looms. Use a template as an aid in making the cardboard loom used in the Weave a Pincushion craft project.

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

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Classic summertime craft—God's Eye!

    God's Eye - If you are looking for a craft that kids love and is great for groups, look no further. God’s Eyes are made with just a few supplies and even small children get wonderful results.
