Party Decorations: Spring Flower Bouquet

Spring Paper Flower Bouquet - In this project, make flowers from computer paper. Make a daffodil, a tulip and an iris, complete with stems and leaves. Use ribbon to tie them up in a bunch, then give them to someone special. The flowers also make wonderful party favors and gift package decorations.

Wednesday Treat: Wild Purple Dots on Yellow digital paper download

This week's Wednesday treat is a new Wild Dots ePaper. The Wild Purple and Lavendar Dots on Yellow ePaper has the same colors as the flowers in the Colored Paper Iris Patterns and works well on the reverse side of the printed pattern.

Greeting Card Tutorial: Paper Applique Cards

Paper Applique Cards - In this tutorial, you'll learn how to make cards with layered paper cutouts. Basically, these cards mimic the look of cloth applique by "stitching" the cutouts with black markers. To make a special Mother's Day version of the card, add a pop-up for Mom inside the card!

Wednesday Treat: Printables for making Mother's Day pop-up cards!

Last week's Wednesday treat was a set of new Mother's Day popup card elements. Use these printable card elements to make a Pop-Up Card for Mother's Day. You could also use them to decorate gift boxes or bags or make gift tags. They coordinate with the Mother's Day Gift Bags and the Multi-color Stripes for Mother's Day ePaper.

Friday Fun! A special Mother's Day card with a pocket for gifts!

Kids' Pocket Mother's Day Cards - This craft project is a kid version of the grown-up Pocket Greeting Cards Tutorial. These fun and unique cards for Mother's Day feature a pocket on the front that the kids can fill with little gifts for Mom.

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 How to Make Stenciled Cards Tutorial.

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.
