This is a project I begun 4 years ago. And now it is finished. Don’t let that scare you, I just went way overboard. You may have heard of this method to make your own flannel figures, though I’m not sure where I heard it 4 years ago. I didn’t look at blogs then. But it is an easy and adaptable way to make any flannel figure or story you would like to.

I found a copy of all these scripture pictures 4 years ago on the website. I’m sorry I can’t link you right to them, I was having a hard time finding them again. You could print out virtually anything you want. Color them if they are not already colored. This is what took me 4 years to do. I could only handle coloring so much in one day.

Then you need some Iron-on Transfer paper, which you can find at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Staples, or anywhere for that matter. Copy your picture onto the transfer paper on an ink jet printer. Next get a piece of white felt, and iron on the transfer paper. Cut the figures out, and there you have it.

Check out my flannel board to make an easy fold up one for your new figures.

To store my figures I put them in a ziplock bag with the story.
