Flannel Friday: Colorful Butterflies

27 May


These butterflies were so easy to make – our Ellison die-cut machine is a wonder with felt, making flannelboards a lot easier when I can find a template for the pieces I need.  And I figured out that a little bit of puffy paint can make your flannelboards just a little more exciting, especially when it has some sparkles to it!

The first to come to the garden bed
is a lovely butterfly of brilliant RED

Then in comes another and that makes two
Fly right in, my friend of BLUE

This garden is fine, the best I’ve seen
says the butterfly of the softest GREEN

Our garden needs a sunny fellow
Fly in butterfly, with wings of YELLOW

Little friend of PURPLE, fly in too
the garden is waiting for a color like you

Hello ORANGE, we’ve waited so long
fly in, right where you belong

Butterflies, Butterflies, you’re such a sight
Flying together with such delight!

    What a cute rhyme and flannel set! I never thought of using the die-cut with my flannels… I will have to try it out. Thanks for sharing!

      It has made creating flannel sets so much easier and I like said in the post, a little puffy paint spices them up!
