ooooo...on sale Thanks for that!
I stopped into Officeworks today and got some cheap matte photo paper (I don't get it...it is 50cents for a pack of 25 a4 sheets and it ain't half bad even just as nicer paper for images) as well as some stick on magnets.
I also bought a pack of 5 magnetic A4 sheets (they also had the 6x4 but the A4 was better value...even at $20 a pack)
I know my family don't go for this sort of thing really but I'll give it a shot and add some cheer to our door :D

Those are the Fish Extenders. The one displayed in my photo was made by my DH. He made 3 of them for the 3 families that traveled together. The P.D.Q. represented the first initial of the last name of each of the families.

Fabulous door decorations everyone!

We only had a couple magnets for our first cruise, but I intend to go all out next year!

You can buy celebration packages from DCL (for example - "Bon Voyage" and "Happy Birthday") which include a cake, room decorations and a large magnet. DCL also provide Castaway Cay and DVC magnets.

If you haven't opened them...At woolworths, the Kodak A4 (5 sheets) was only about $11-12!!!! I did a trial print on the 4X6 of my own crappy designs, and the quality was quite good.

Everything we did was on plain paper. We then cut up old magnets, like the ones with advertisements on them, and attached them to the corners. We had no problem with them staying attached to our door and it was a LOT cheaper. Our Mickeys were also attached with old recycled magnets.

They were on clearance for $6

I know it is still more expensive then plain paper but it is partially an experiment for the future as well.

Here are our doors from the August 15, 2009 cruise on the Magic. This was after I started giving away magnets so there are a few gaps where magnets were taken...unfortunately someone also took my Mickey Ears. I probably gave away 3000+ magnets on this cruise. I had created about 190 peace magnets (I printed at least 5 of each), 100 or so Mickey magnets (I printed at least 5 of each), and three different styles of letters...nautical, rainbow mickey head, and mickey characters (I printed between 4 and 50 of each letter). You can see an example of the letters on the door on the right. In the end, I came home with maybe 1 lb. of magnets...I brought 50 lbs. Almost everything I put out on the door was given away, but I just got tired of putting out more magnets and so had a few to take home. I started using any surface to put out magnets...all of the panels between cabin doors are metal, so I was able to spread out and put magnets all over.

I also gave away about 50 pairs of black Mickey Ears to the cabins around me...unfortunately after a couple days somebody stole one ear from each of the doors. It was sad.

The Fish Extenders were made by my sister who is amazing with a sewing machine. The dowel ends are antenna toppers.

I have powerpoint files of all the images of the magnets I gave away...let me know if you want one with a PM including your email address and what you want...I can't send the files via PM. All of the images were downloaded from the internet, manipulated in paint or photoshop, and fit into a circle in powerpoint. I have four files....ears (black or rainbow), letters, peace circles, and mickey circles. Forgive me if I don't get back to you right away....I only check my PMs a couple times a week.

Yes, my DW made them on a cricut for our last cruise. She made 4 -- a different Mickey one for each of our three boys and the Minnie/Mickey one for our door. She plans to do some more this cruise for my DSIL/DBIL's stateroom door.

Hi! Sorry my reply is so delayed...I haven't been on the boards in a couple of days... The pirate stitch magnet was created by BabaBear (Mel) over on the DISigns board. She created it for me back in February...not sure if she is still DISigning, but you could check....
