we have saved most of our Key to the World Cards... I want to do something to save them all in one place... I thought of getting a wallet... I've thought of getting badge holders and tying them together with ribbon... just wondering what others have done with theirs if they have saved them.

(side note... I just checked on eBay searching under "Cruise Lanyard"... and a Castaway Club Gold Member (or someone who go their hands on them) is selling their lanyards for EIGHT DOLLARS... SERIOUSLY?!?!??!?! just.wow!

I don't do anything with all of our old cards, but we did do an extended family cruise once for New Years, courtesy of my in-laws. My father-in-law, husband, and then-6-year-old DS took a photo one night with DS sitting inside of a life-sized "frame" that DH and FIL are holding. I framed that picture with all three of their specific card keys around them. They are namesakes - Sr., Jr., and III - so it's very cool. I'm sure my son will love having that in his home some day.......he likes it even now!

Ours become part of our scrapbooks. I use everything from luggage tags to napkins to the little covers on the glasses. It all becomes background or accessorizes the main pictures on the page.

The ebayer is TRYING to sell the lanyards -- I wonder what they'll actually go for.

(slightly off-topic) After the first DCL Hawaiian cruise, people were trying to sell a set of four gift napkins with napkin rings on ebay. They're machine-embroidered with the Disney characters and the date of the inaugural cruise, and they are cute, which is why I'd like an additional set, but sellers were trying to get more than $100. for them. They've since dropped to a more realistic price, but they're still more than I'm willing to pay.

I've made wall art with Starbucks gift cards before by gluing them side by side in the shape of a square onto posterboard. Then I used ribbon to hang it onto the wall. If you have enough cards you could do the same thing. Unfortunately I don't have enough yet, I guess that means I need to take more cruises!

Ours are in a pile of things we'll never actually get around to scrapbooking...

I'm interested in seeing this idea. Do you have any pictures! We have tons of KTTW cards, and i'd like to do something other than keep them in a box.

Mine, too. I have a whole box of Disney scrapbooking stuff I've been collecting for years. Spent a small fortune. Never done a thing with any of it. :lmao:

I'm visiting family but when I get home in a few days I'll post a pic for you (if I can figure out how lol).

I took an extra KTTW card on my Dream cruise in June & use it to keep the lights on! That way I had my active one w/me & didn't accidently leave it in the room. :cool1:

I got my DS a guitar pick punch last Christmas, and he made a bunch of picks from his old KTTW cards. :goodvibes

We have all our room keys dating back to 1978 in a business card folder that we purchased at Staples.i think you can also get them at a good camera store. It's nice to look back and remember the trips we have taken

Great idea, I guess you need a special cutter for that?

Yeah, it looks like a big-ish stapler. It's really cool -- he had so many old KTTW cards, arcade cards, etc., that he was able to turn into momento picks. I got it at Think Geek. :goodvibes

I have seen this done with concert tickets:

What about getting a shadow box frame, and making a scrapbook type page for the background of it, then just pile the KTTW cards in the bottom, with a goal to fill it up? Fun memories, but also decoration, and a conversation piece! ;)

We put our KTTW cards from both our cruises and WDW in our scrapbooks. I usually glue them to the inside of the front cover of the scrapbook.

I recently did this with an empty Disney giftcard, but you could do the same with a KTTW card.

I received some luggage tags that were the same card-size from United Airlines. I didn't like the design on them though, so I used E-6000 glue to stick the cute Disney card on the front. My husband used an exacto knife to cut the hole for the strap to go through. It turned out so cute!

As for our KTTW cards... they're in the pile with all the other Disney stuff waiting to be scrapbooked!

They can also be used for self defense.

On our last trip to WDW, we noticed at the Art of Disney stores pictures you could hang that were mattes with cutouts in the shape of Mickey, Cinderella's Castle, and a rose layered over a bunch of pins.

They also sold just the cutouts (although smaller) so that you could layer it over your own pin collage. We bought some of the cutout mattes and are planning to layer them over our old KTW cards from WDW, DL, DL Paris, DCL, and HKDL glued onto a picture frame back and hang it on the wall.

I love all the ideas. I have kept all of our KTTW cards (WDW and Cruise), DLR cards and expired APs in our disney keepsake box.

Well, not really a box anymore. It started as a Disney Keepsake box, then it became a Disney Keepsake Drawer, then it became a Disney Keepsake Storage Container and finally (now) it is a Disney Keepsake Cedar Chest at the end of my bed.

Pretty soon I'm going to have to change that to a Disney Keepsake Room (well, my bedroom may be close to that already with all our ear hats on display around the room). :rotfl2:

love the ideas! a magnetic strip on back sounds like the perfect answer for a lazy person such as myself:rotfl:
