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: Techniques for making pop-up cards!

  • Step Pop-Up Cards - Make a pop-up greeting card for a variety of occasions. 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.

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

  • Wednesday Treat: New tall pentagon box patterns!

    This week's Wednesday Treat is a new set of Pentagon Box printable patterns. The patterns are for a tall box with colored, plain and patterned options. The patterned box pattern features Adinkra Mate Masie, an Asante symbol of wisdom with prudence.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Recipe for homemade air-dry clay made with bread!

    Bread Clay Recipe - This recipe makes a durable and very pliable clay that can be colored vibrantly. This clay is particularly good for making items that will get heavy use, like beads and playing pieces for games. All you do is mix white glue into shredded white bread and add color with a bit of paint.

Featured last week: Make a pentagon-shaped box in three sizes!

  • Pentagon Box - Make a pentagonal-shaped box with an attached lid in various sizes using printable patterns. The boxes range in size from 3" to 1¾" and nest together for storage. Use the boxes individually, or stacked, as gift boxes, favors or for storing jewelry and other trinkets. Also included are boxes decorated with stars & stripes or with shamrocks.

  • Wednesday Treat: Digital paper in red, white and blue with stars and stripes!

    Last week's Wednesday Treat is a new digital paper download featuring Stars and Stripes. Use this digital paper to decorate Fourth of July Crackers or in any of the Fourth of July Crafts. You could also print it on heavy paper to make a quick flag banner following instructions in the Easter Pennant Banner.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Make red strawberries from walnuts and felt!

    Sweet Strawberries - Make strawberries from walnuts in the shell that are painted red. This is a quick and easy project that both kids and adults will have fun doing! The strawberries can be used as decorations on gifts or around the house and make a wonderful gift to brighten anyone's day!
