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: Easy card making with double-sided paper!

  • Double-sided Paper Window Card - See how quick and easy it is to make a window card with double-sided paper or cardstock. Just cut, fold and glue and then decorate with stamps and cutouts. Since the two sides of double-sided paper are meant to go together, you'll always get a color coordinated card!

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

  • Wednesday Treat: New circles in browns digital paper!

    This week's Wednesday Treat is a new Minimalist Circles in Browns digital paper, which is the second digital paper in the Minimalist Circles ePaper series.  This digital paper coordinates with the Aboriginal Dot Painting ePapers and is great for making Tube-shaped gift bags or a Card for Him.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Make funny faces with this set of  silly cards!

    Silly Faces Mix-and-Match Cards - Just a few simple materials and a little instruction is all it takes to make a set of mix-and-match cards. Cut all the cards into three pieces and mix them up to make silly faces. Giggles are a sure thing!

Featured last week: Simple cat, rabbit and bear puppets!

  • Simple Mitt Hand Puppets - What did one mitt say to the other? That’s up to you with this easily customized puppet made of paper. Facial features and your own custom cutouts transform a basic mitt shape into funny characters, adorable animals, monsters, and anything else you can imagine. Start with Aunt Annie's cat, rabbit and bear patterns, then try a design of your own!

  • Wednesday Treat: New flower and quad-heart design digital paper!

    Last week's Wednesday Treat was a new Flowers and Quad-Hearts on Yellow digital paper, which completes the Flower and Quad-Heart ePaper series.  Use these downloadable papers to make Appliqué Heart Valentines or any of the Valentine's Day projects.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Fun to make custom picture puzzles!

    Picture Puzzles - Turn drawings, photographs or any image you love into a picture puzzle. This is a simple craft for groups of children. The puzzles make great gifts, so make one to keep and another to give away.
