What is the best method for making my own flannel or felt story board and story pieces?

I've searched online, and while there are prepackaged sets that look fairly nice, I'd rather have the flexibility of creating my own. It looks pretty easy to adhere flannel or felt to a board, but I'm wondering what is the best way to create pieces.
It looks like for basic shapes, you can use felt directly and draw on it. However, for more detailed figures, I'd like to print it out in color and find a way to adhere to the flannel board.
Here are ways I've seen so far:
*print on cardstock, laminate, then attach velcro
*print on iron-on transfer paper then attach to felt
*print on paper and glue to felt
I'm afraid that attaching to a small piece of felt may be too heavy and not stick well to the flannel board. I'm afraid that using velcro will damage the surface after multiple uses.
What do you recommend?
