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: A fun and unique greeting card!

  • Pocket Cards - In this tutorial, you'll learn how to make greeting cards with pockets that can be filled with little pieces of your creative art. They are also ideal for presents of money or gift cards. The pocket cards are very versatile, make several cards in a variety of colors to have on hand to decorate for any occasion.

  • Wednesday Treat: Happy Mother's Day printable with stickers and tags!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a special Mother's Day download! Use Aunt Annie's printable Mother's Day stickers and tags to make Pocket Cards for Mother's Day, in your Mother's Day gift wrapping or to decorate for Mother's Day. You could even make a mini-banner for Mother's Day by printing on cardstock and stringing the "Happy Mother's Day" medallions on yarn or string.
