Collaborating once again this month with a lovely group of Bloggers to bring you some new craft ideas. For the March Craft Destash we are challenged to create a project using only items currently found in our craft stash. We were to make something new with crafty supplies or re-make an item we’ve been holding on to for a while. For this challenge, hosted by Megan from C’mon Get Crafty,  I decided to make these fun Flannel Board Easter Felt Pieces.

Flannel Board Easter Felt Pieces

When we were visiting our 18 month old granddaughter in the fall she was playing with her flannel board. She had lots of pieces for fall – pumpkins, leaves . . . So when I was trying to figure out some things to put in her Easter basket I decided to make these fun Easter pieces for her. I seem to have lots of felt in my stash so I didn’t have to buy anything!

For this project all you need is some different colored felt, the free cut file and a Cricut. For those of you with a Cricut Maker you can skip the part about bonding your felt. I have a Cricut Explore and therefore don’t have a rotary cutter which makes cutting fabric a little easier. So if you are like me with an older Cricut you will also need some freezer paper or something like heat and bond to stabilize your felt.

Free Cricut cut file for adorable Easter flannel board felt pieces!

Materials:

Felt sheets in the following colors: white, brown, off white, blue, pink, yellow, orange, green
Green Cricut Mat
Blade – rotary for Maker and regular blade for Explore
Cricut Cut File

Freezer Paper (for Cricut Explore)

Directions:

1. Download the free file then upload it to Cricut Design Space.
2. If you are using anything other than a Cricut Maker, cut pieces of freezer paper the size of your felt sheets. Iron the shiny side of the freezer paper to the felt sheet. Make sure it is adhered really well. If you look at the picture of the pieces I made you will notice that the basket does not have a handle like the one in the cut file. That’s because I didn’t have my white felt ironed to the freezer paper good enough and the blade tore my basket handle 😉
3. Put your felt onto your mat. If you used freezer paper, the freezer paper side goes down on the mat. Just be forewarned – anywhere the felt touches the mat, the felt really sticks to the mat!
4. Make sure you have a really sharp blade inserted if you are using Explore. Otherwise it may not cut the felt. 
5. Click the “make it” button. Set your material to custom then click on “show all”. Scroll down and choose either felt or bonded felt if you have freezer paper ironed on.
6. Then just load your mat and let it cut away. When it’s finished, use a spatula to get the pieces off the mat. 
7. Peel any freezer paper from the back of your pieces and you are finished!**
**If you like you can add details with paint or ribbon if they are age appropriate.

  1. These are all so cute! We used to flannel boards together for our pre-school classes at the daycare where I worked and we loved making pieces to go with each of the seasons. Pinned.

  5. These are so cute. I have a letter board that felt sticks to and every month I try to reflect the holiday with a saying and stickers or felt. I’m going to try to make some of these!
