Flannel Friday: Five Little Chickadees Flannelboard

July 1, 2011

Inspired by Lisa Monet’s calypso version of Five Little Chickadees that Katie at Storytime Secrets introduced me to, I made five chickadees on milk filters. A Google image search led me to the chickadee template.

Five Little Chickadees
I think ilk filters are awesome for flannelboards. They are thin, cheap and easy to trace over. You can purchase them at a farm supply store like Thiesen’s. I don’t have an Accucut machine or large milk filters, but have heard from This Happy Stuff that they work with them and can be run through a printer if you cut them to 8 1/2 x 11.

  1. Oh, they’re so dear! Interfacing from the fabric store works the same as milk filters too 🙂

    So do I understand correctly that you can PRINT directly on them? Do you know more about that — inkjet or laser?
