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: Printable patterns for elephant puppets!

  • Elephant Finger Puppets - Make elephant finger puppets that are animated with three of your fingers—two fingers for the legs and another finger for the head. These puppets are easy to make—just cut, fold and glue. These puppets go with lion, rabbit and sheep puppets in the Three-Finger Puppets craft project.

  • Wednesday Treat: New digital papers with purple triangles!

    This week's Wednesday Treat is a new set of purple triangle digital paper downloads for you to print and use in any of your crafts or card making. These ePapers feature triangles in plum to lavender and coordinate with last week's Plum and Lavender Checks digital paper download.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: A summertime craft for everyone—God's Eye!

    God's Eye - If you are looking for a craft that kids love and is great for groups, look no further. God’s Eyes are made with just a few supplies and even small children get wonderful results.

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  Step Pop-Up Cards. In this tutorial, see how easy it is to make a step pop-up mechanism, also sometimes called a platform or double-slit pop-up. Once you learn this technique it's a simple matter to create pop-up cards of your own design. 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.
