As a follow-up to my post introducing How to Create Felt Pages Without Sewing, I thought I would share some other pages I have created.  While these pages do not include instructions, I hope these at least inspire you and show the large number of activities you can make for your book without sewing.

Keep in mind, some pages do include the use of more advanced tools (as noted in my Felt Quiet Books page), like a Crop-A-Dile Eyelet and Snap Punch.  These items will be listed in the supplies needed for each page.

Example Pages

Please keep in mind that my son was “helping” me photograph the pages and they are definitely in “played with” condition!  I also have a cat and two indoor bunnies – please pardon any stray fur you may see.

Zippers

Supplies needed:

  1. Stiffened felt backing (9×12″ in example)
  2. 3 zippers
  3. Glue gun and glue sticks
  4. Scissors
  5. Optional:  Felt sticker letters (still use glue gun!)

Note:  Make sure to only glue the two sides of the zipper without getting any glue in the “teeth” of the zipper.

Velcro Alphabet

Supplies needed:

  1. Stiffened felt backing (9×12″ in example)
  2. Felt sticker alphabet letters
  3. 26 sets of velcro dots (glue your velcro)
  4. Scissors
  5. Glue gun and glue sticks
  6. Optional:  Stiffened felt circles (if you want precut – otherwise use your scissors to cut circles around your letters)

Velcro Fruit Tree

Supplies needed:

  1. Stiffened felt backing (9×12″ in example)
  2. Stiffened felt for fruit (in this example, die cutting was used and the fruit)
  3. Velcro dots (number depends on how many fruit items you create
  4. Felt for the tree (stiffened or non-stiffened), tree trunk and baskets (baskets glued on the lower three edges only)
  5. Scissors
  6. Glue gun and glue sticks

Note:  This page was not created by KrisBeeMama – it is an example of a page received at a page swap (see this post for details on how a swap may work).

Seasons Pretend Play

Supplies needed:

  1. Stiffened felt backing (9×12″ in example)
  2. Additional felt (stiffened or non-stiffened) for the tree, ground, season decoration pockets and season decorations (snow, rain, sun, etc)
  3. Felt sticker letters (make sure you glue them even though they may have a sticky back!)
  4. Scissors
  5. Glue gun and glue sticks

Decorated with Spring items:

While I used eyelets and a couple binder rings to connect two pages, you can put the season pockets on the backside of your activity page.

5 Bears on the Bed

This is a play on the “Ten Little Monkeys” song/book.

Supplies needed:

  1. Stiffened felt backing (9×12″ in example)
  2. Felt (stiffened or non-stiffened) for the bed and, if desired, 5 handmade monkeys (or bears in this example).  I used a small strip of felt behind the animals to hold the bears on the string (not glued in the middle so they slide on the string)
  3. Felt numbers 1-5 (remember to still glue the numbers even if they have a sticky back!)
  4. String (I sewed the string on at the top of the bed and below the bed, but you can also just use a dab of glue)
  5. Scissors
  6. Glue gun and glue sticks
  7. Optional:  Premade monkey or other animal to “fall” off the bed

Potato Head

Note that most of the decoration items were created using die cuts at a local craft store (call around to see if anywhere close to you offers die cuts – these are amazing time savers!)

  1. Stiffened felt backing (9×12″ in example)
  2. Felt (I suggest stiffened for the decoration items, but you can use stiffened or non-stiffened for the body and arms on the page backing for decoration)
  3. Optional:  Permanent sharpie markers to add details to your decoration items
  4. Optional:  Zipper pencil bag for the back of the page to hold decoration items (these can be found at the dollar store!).  If you do not use a zipper bag, you can make a simple pocket on the back of the page with a flap of felt glued on only 3 sides.
  5. Scissors
  6. Glue gun and glue sticks

I’ll stop there, even though I have MANY more to share (maybe another time!). Feel free to contact me (or comment) if you have any questions!!
