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: Game board for an ancient game of  strategy!

  • Alquerque Game Board - In this project, make an Alquerque game board designed for use with marbles as playing pieces. Alquerque is a classic war or battle game with equal sides and complex strategy. Included in the project are rules for playing Alquerque and some history about the game.

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

  • Wednesday Treat: New Hawaiian orchid dots ePapers!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a new set of dotted ePapers for the Hawaiian Orchid digital paper collection! Use two of the coordinating ePapers printed on opposite sides of a sheet of paper to make a Double-sided Paper Window Card.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Print colorful bubbles on paper!

    Bubble Print Paper - Use paint and bubble blowing liquid to make this kid-safe alternative for marbled paper. With this technique you will make pastel prints of soap bubbles on paper that then can be used for other craft projects.

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

Featured last week: Make window cards with double-sided paper!

  • Double-sided Paper Window Card - See how quick and easy it is to make a window card with double-sided paper or cardstock. Just cut, fold and glue and then decorate with stamps and cutouts. Since the two sides of double-sided paper are meant to go together, you'll always get a color coordinated card!

  • Wednesday Treat: New seahorse and shark printable bookmarks!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a new set of printable patterns for Seahorse and Shark Bookmarks—easy to make, fun to give as gifts!   Follow the instructions in the Cardstock Animal Bookmarks craft project for making the bookmarks and for more animal bookmark choices.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: A fun summertime craft for camp or a lazy day!

    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.
