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 paper airplane that glides and loops!

Featured last week: Make cards with printed images or photos!

  • Matted Clip-art and Photo Cards - Learn matting techniques and color combining concepts to use with clip-art and photos to make stylish greeting cards.

  • Wednesday Treat: New colorful frames for matting photos on greeting cards!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a new printable with Frames for Clip-art or Photos. Print on cardstock and cutout the colorful frame of your choice to mat clip-art or a photo. This is an especially nice matting alternative for adding photos to a greeting card. See the Matted Clip-art and Photo Card tutorial for more matting ideas.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Turn any drawing, picture or photo into a puzzle!

    Picture Puzzles - Turn drawings, photographs or any image you love into a picture puzzle. This is a simple craft for groups of children. The puzzles make great gifts, so make one to keep and another to give away.

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 tutorial is  Matted Clip-art and Photo Cards, the second in a series of twelve card tutorials.  This tutorial is all about combining colors. You'll learn how to select a mat color that suits the clip-art or photo that you've chosen as the central theme of your greeting card. 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.
