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: Valentine with a pop-up heart inside!

  • Valentine Heart Pop-Up Cards - Make a special Valentine's Day card with a pop-up inside. When the card is opened, a heart will spring out! This simple 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.

    Come back on Wednesday for a new craft treat and later in the week for a new Friday Fun craft!

  • Wednesday Treat: Make unique Valentines using printable downloads!

    This week's Wednesday treat is how to make a set of cards for Valentine's Day using Red and Yellow Harlequin Diamonds ePaper and Pen 'n Ink Heart cutouts or other heart cutouts. You can easily make six Valentine's Day cards using the instructions in the Invitation Card Set tutorial.

    Using any of Aunt Annie's Digital Papers for Valentine's Day and heart cutouts to make Valentine's Day cards for family and friends.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Make a chocolate treat for Valentine's Day!

    Chocolate Spoons - It's easy and fast to make these tasty treats, then wrap them up with ribbon and cellophane. Use these fancy spoons to add a special touch to a dinner party, make a unique hostess or Valentine's Day gift, or brighten someone's day! Make mocha coffee in a flash by using a chocolate spoon to stir hot milk into your coffee!

Featured last week: Single-sheet of paper greeting card set!

  • Invitation Card Set - Make a set of six invitations from a single sheet of letter-size, patterned paper! In about the same amount of time that it would take you to make a batch of identical invitations, you can create unique invitations to send to each of your guests!

  • Wednesday Treat: New red and yellow diamond digital paper to download!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a new Red and Yellow Harlequin Diamonds ePaper. Use this ePaper to make a Diamond Box or for any Boxes and Bags craft. This ePaper is part of the series of Harlequin Diamonds ePapers and coordinates with the Red Mixed Dots ePapers.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Rolled paper beads from recycled paper!

    Shiny Paper Beads - See how easy it is to recycle paper scraps and magazines to make colorful paper beads. After winding the paper into beads and varnishing them for a shiny finish and durability, the beads can be strung into bracelets, necklaces and even beaded room dividers!

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  Ribbon Edge Cards. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create a decorative cut edge that is enhanced with a ribbon backing. You'll also learn how to make a stamp from an eraser and use it to make plain and checkered backgrounds.

 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.
