Flannel Friday: Flannelboard Kit!

As this past week at the library was super busy, and I didn’t get a chance to make a flannelboard, I thought I would take some pictures of my kit and what it looks like.

I keep all of my flannelboard making supplies in this kit so that I can grab it and move to any area of the library (or home…as many of my flannels are created while watching TV — I need to keep my hands busy!) without worrying about missing a pair of scissors or a certain felt color.

Some of the contents:
– Tacky Glue
– Tape on a roll!
– Scissors (And a back-up pair)
– Googly eyes (black and white/colored)
– Paint (white and black), Paperclips, and Paint Cup
– Ribbon
– Paint Pens
– Embroidery Floss & Needles

I also keep a file folder filled with flannel templates and ideas — most of that is FULL of Flannel Friday!

Anna has the round-up this week. Melissa started this. Anne has the archive. And you can also follow the Flannel Friday Pinterest account. (Also, Melissa has a new button if you want to link to Flannel Friday and it’s up at her blog here.)

    Good to know what’s in your kit! I haven’t truly gotten too creative with my flannel boards yet but maybe this will inspire me!

    my-o-my that is one organized little kit you got there. so much better than my system, which is more like scavanger hunt crossed with a felt salad on the side.

      I listed all of the contents of my kit on the blog entry. I’m not sure if you want brand specifics or what else you might need.
