Welcome to Aunt Annie's Crafts!

Featured this week: Make a gift of flexagons for a puzzler!

  • Flexagon Boxed Set - Make a gift that will fascinate puzzle-minded kids and adults. In this project, you'll make a set of hexaflexagons and a matching hexagonal box for storage. Flexagons are folded paper polygons that have the neat feature of changing faces as they are flexed.

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 Dangler Cards!  Like America, this 3-dimensional card stands on its own. A rotating patriotic dangle makes a red, white and blue craft for kids or adults into a special Memorial Day or Independence Day card that doubles as a centerpiece! 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.
