Featured this week: DIY cards for Easter and spring!

  • Wednesday Treat: Learn to weave on a cardboard loom!

    This week's Wednesday treat is instructions for how to Weave a Pincushion! It's easy to make a pincushion (or dill pillow) in any color you like with a little yarn woven into fabric on a cardboard loom. It's just a matter of forming a tube with the woven fabric, stuffing it and sewing it close.

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  Stenciled Cards. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to make cards using stencils and acrylic paint. You'll also be shown how to make your own stencils using paper punches or a few snips with scissors. 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.
