Welcome to Aunt Annie's Crafts!

Featured this week: Quilling to decorate cards, tags and gifts!

  • Christmas Quilling - Quilling, the art of rolling narrow strips of paper into coils or scrolls, is a wonderful way to decorate boxes, tags, and cards. It can also turn a simple craft item into an elegant gift. This project includes Christmas quilling designs and examples of how to combine quilling with handcrafted items.

  • Wednesday Treat: New template for 12-sided, dodecahedron 2018 calendar!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a printable pattern for making a 2018 calendar in the form of a dodecahedron, a platonic solid with twelve pentagon faces. Follow the instructions in the Platonic Solids craft project to make a 2018 calendar for your desktop or to give as a gift.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Candy canes, snowmen and little tree ornaments!

    Christmas Ornaments, Magnets and Figurines - See how easy it is to use Homemade Modeling Dough to make Christmas-themed ornaments, refrigerator magnets, and figurines. Use your fingers to fashion the modeling dough in fun shapes for Christmas using the ideas in this project, or come up with something new of your own invention!

Featured last week: Recycle last year's cards into new ones!

  • Recycled Greeting Cards - In this tutorial, learn how to make new greeting cards by recycling old cards. A variety of techniques are presented that make it easy to create a card you will be proud to send. Making recycled cards is a terrific group activity and is fun for crafters of all ages.

  • Wednesday Treat: New traceable templates for card making!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a set of new pine tree and bell templates to cut tree- and bell-shaped images, backgrounds, and mats from old cards to make Recycled Greeting Cards. The templates can also be used in other Christmas crafts.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Print and cut Christmas cards for all ages!

    Shaped Cards for Christmas - Make simple and fun holiday cards in the shape of a pine tree, Santa, or an angel. These cards are easy enough for younger children and people with special needs to make. While the cards are very simple to make, they are easily enhanced with glitter, cotton balls, sequins, and other creative touches. Let your imagination soar!
