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: A romantic Valentine that shouts your love!

  • Valentine Heart Pop-Up Cards - If wearing your heart on your sleeve isn’t your style, make this special Valentine’s Day card instead. This simple heart pop-up is easy enough for children to make and offers enough flexibility for the creativity of teen and adult crafters. The heart pop-ups can also be added to any handmade or commercial card.

  • Wednesday Treat: New templates for heart pop-ups! Add to any card!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a set of printable heart pop-up patterns for use inside of handmade or commercial greeting cards. Just cut them out, fold and glue. See the Valentine Heart Pop-Up Cards craft project for more details.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Make a Valentine's Day flag banner with hearts!

    Valentine Flag Banner - In this craft, simple to cut flags are decorated with hearts, then strung together with string or yarn to create a banner. Hang the banner in a doorway, over the mantel, or in the window, or use it to decorate a Valentine-themed bulletin board. No pattern required—just cut, glue and string!

Featured last week: Custom envelopes for your handmade cards!

  • Envelopes to Make - See how easy it is to make a custom envelope for all of your handmade cards. The envelope can be made from white or colored paper, and can be decorated to match your card. There are printable patterns for three sizes of greeting card envelopes.

  • Wednesday Treat: New envelope templates with hearts for Valentines!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a set of printable envelope patterns with hearts and colorful backgrounds. The templates are in three sizes to fit the cards in the Greeting Card Tutorials, Valentine Pop-up Cards, and Heart-Shaped Cards. See the Envelopes to Make craft project for more details.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Cut chains of hearts for Valentine's Day!

    Paper Heart Chains - Create chains of paper hearts by cutting accordion-folded paper strips. You can easily make paper heart chains for Valentine's Day. It's just like cutting Paper Doll Chains—only easier! Use strips of red paper, plain or patterned, to decorate for a party, in the classroom, around the house or for a special dinner with your loved ones.
