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: Three-dimensional heart-shaped Valentine!

  • 3-D Heart Valentines - Give your whole heart this Valentine’s Day with a three-dimensional heart-shaped Valentine! Hang it up, decorate a box top with it or use it as a pop-up in a card! Little fingers may have trouble with this project, so Aunt Annie provides a kid-friendly craft option.

  • Wednesday Treat: Printable Valentines featuring 3-D honeycomb hearts!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a set of printable Valentines that feature 3-D honeycomb hearts. Make a special Valentine for your sweetheart by just cutting out one of the Valentines and gluing half of a 3-D Heart Valentine in the center. Choose from the plain and colored Valentines in three sizes—the colored Valentines include messages!

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Make air-dry clay jewelry for your Valentine!

    Clay Charms and Pendants - Make charms and pendants for necklaces and bracelets using Homemade Bread Clay or commercial air-dry clay. Make the heart and flower pendants and heart charms for yourself or to give as gifts. When strung on cord or a chain, they make perfect gifts for Valentine's Day.

Featured last week: Woven basket for heart candies or cookies!

  • Valentine Basket - Give your Valentine something sweet! Make this woven paper heart basket and fill it with candy or some other treat. You will weave together red and white paper to make this basket.

  • Wednesday Treat: Woven heart basket patterns with extra hearts!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a set of printable woven heart patterns for making an extra special Valentine Basket. These woven heart baskets feature a vertical line of little hearts.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Make an easy and flexible homemade clay!

    Bread Clay Recipe - This recipe makes a durable and very pliable clay that can be colored vibrantly. This clay is particularly good for making items that will get heavy use, like beads and playing pieces for games. All you do is mix white glue into shredded white bread and add color with a bit of paint.

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 idea is Easy Rubber Stamp Repeat Cards! Learn to make cards using repeats of small rubber stamps arranged in threes or fours and matted. 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.
