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: Make age specific pop-up birthday cards!

  • Pop-up Age Birthday Cards - Make a birthday card that features the child's (or adult's) age as a pop-up. There's something almost magical about pop-ups that delights both children and adults. After you make this card, you will be able to add a similar V-fold pop-up to any greeting card.

  • Wednesday Treat: Printable number templates for age pop-ups!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a printable pop-up numbers pattern with 3" number templates that you can use to make the age pop-up for your Pop-up Age Birthday Cards. Just cut out and trace the number template for your child's age onto colored cardstock.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Make shiny 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!

    For more family, classroom or group crafts see the Friday Fun Crafts collection!

Featured last week: A self-closing bag for gifts or party favors!

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 tutorial is Dangler Cards and is the fourth tutorial in Card Class 2! Have fun making these freestanding, novelty cards that feature a dangler that spins and twists. If you are new to card making, review all the tutorials in  the first Card Class to learn many techniques for making beautiful cards and then go on to Card Class 2 for more card-making ideas and techniques.
