Post 16 – How to Make - Miscellaneous

How To Make - Miscellaneous
By Dolly
How to Make Your Own Sucker Wrappers in Word
Go to http://www.jersgirl.com/temps.html and click on the tab for "free templates", find the "sucker cover" template and save it to your pictures. Here are the instructions for inserting the blank template into a word document:
· First save the image from the 4shared file to your pictures.
· Open up a word document and click on “file” and in the drop down menu click on “setup”. In the “margins” tab set all of the margins to “.3” and make sure the direction is set to "landscape".
· Next insert the image by going to the top of word and click on "insert" then "picture" and "from file". When you find the image click on "insert".
· Then click once on the image so that you can edit it, and click on "format" and in the drop down menu and click on "picture".
· Next go to the "size" tab and set the height to 6.22 inches, then click the “tab” key on your keyboard and the width will automatically correct itself to 2.59 inches.
· Then click "okay".
· If you set your margins correctly, you will be able to get four of these to a page.

Now go to www.disneyclips.com and find some pictures that you want to use on your sucker wrapper. Save them to your pictures. (Do not copy and paste directly into word). Use the rest of the tips on this site to play with your sucker wrapper...then:
· Print out the wrappers on card stock and cut out around each image.
· Then use a hole punch to punch out the marked hole.
· Next fold all three lines, slide your sucker through the hole, wrap the wrapper around the sucker and secure with double sided tape

How to Fill a Word Template (example envelope or candy wrapper) With a Picture –
This can be done as I just did it. This is an advance MS Word design.so you will need to be able to insert pictures into MS Word, use the picture toolbar, and know how to drag and crop images in order to fill a template with a picture.
· Insert the template of the envelope that you want to use into a new MS Word document. Click once on the image to open it up for editing.
· In the "picture toolbar" click once on "set transparent color" (it should be the second icon from the right and looks like a piece of chalk with yellow on it.)
· Then move your mouse over the image and click once on the color you want to remove...which should be white if it is a black and white template for an envelope or candy wrapper.
· Click once on the screen somewhere outside of the envelope so that you can close the picture toolbar.
· Once you closed out the picture toolbar, hit return once.
· Insert the picture that you want to show up in the envelope.
· Click once on the new picture and then click on the "text wrapping" tool in the "picture toolbar" and in the drop down menu click on "in front of text".
· Then click and drag the image on top of the envelope approximately where you want it to be.
· Take a little bit of time to resize and crop the image so that it will fit in the space you want it to go.

Then if you want, you can click on the “text wrapping” tool in the “picture toolbar” and in the drop down menu click on “behind text” and continue to resize and crop the image as needed. But this is not necessary if you are happy with the image and its placement.

If you have any questions on these steps let me know. Dolly’s thread for questions can be found here http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=36014139#post36014139

For a Basic Word Template Design – by Dolly
· Insert the template you want to use into an MS Word document.
· Insert the picture you want to use.
· Click once on the picture and click on "text wrapping" in the picture toolbar and "in front of text".
· Then move, rotate and resize the image until you are happy with its placement over the template.
· Finish off by inserting a textbox to write a few words and voila...you have a fun template design!

Post 18 – What Do You Make For Your Vacation?

THE FOLLOWING LIST IS A CONDENSED VERSION OF THE “WHAT DO YOU MAKE” THREAD. IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TIME, STOP BY THE ORIGINAL THREAD FOR MORE DETAILS ON HOW TO MAKE ALL OF THESE WONDERFUL THINGS: Developed & Organized by Dolly
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2179996

PLANNING JOURNAL:
there are several threads that can help you plan out your trip…here are some links:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2114031 planning pages for Disneyland, Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2116437 art work for sections

http://s143.photobucket.com/albums/r...nning%20Cards/
http://s143.photobucket.com/albums/r.../Photo%20Pass/

COUNTDOWN CALENDAR OR COUNTDOWN CHAIN: Mel makes countdown chains and they can be found in her thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2018621

HEARD YOU WERE COMING TO VISIT DISNEY LETTERS:
All children love to get letters in the mail and what better than to get a letter from their favorite character! Ohana90 has some in her files

TRAVEL BACKPACK:
fill it will all things Disney or travel games. For just $10 you can fill up a backpack at most dollar stores. You can find...playing cards, puzzles, crossword puzzles, coloring books, crayons, pencils, games, squeeze bottles/drink cups...the list goes on. Keep your eyes open and look in the game isle and the office supplies. Then add a luggage tag to the outside of the backpack. Also, www.momsminivan.com is a great place to find travel hints and free printable games like travel bingo, travel battleship, etc. and a long list of games to entertain kids with while you travel. Scroll through this thread to get ideas and see a picture of one mom's travel backpacks...I think on the second page: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....2005108&page=2

T-SHIRTS

INVITATIONS:
Lots of people make invitations for meals or special events like Bippity Boppity Boo Make Over, MNSSHP, or character meals. You can slide them under the hotel room door each night so that everyone has a surprise when they wake up in the morning.

Examples of invites:


Places to find Invites:
Wendy http://www.4shared.com/account/dir/1...ng.html?rnd=41
Natalie (Donatalie): http://www.4shared.com/dir/5978989/a...s_DISigns.html

WELCOME LETTERS:
you can hang these on your hotel room door or leave them in the room for your family to find.

YOU’VE BEEN GOOD TREATS:
you can leave these on the pillows for everyone in the family to find when they get back from a GREAT day at the Disney. These can also be found in Natalie's shared file under "Gift Tags".



For the treats themselves you can make gum wrappers, candy bar wrappers, nugget wrappers, life saver wrappers, mint tin covers...all made by wonderful designers and some of them make the candy look like characters themselves. You don't have to give big treats...just a small piece of candy with the letter will make anyone in your family smile. I made a lot of Telynn's and you can find them in this thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....ghlight=nugget

Here is an example:



You can find more candy treat ideas in Mel’s Candy Pockets thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1980430 OR
http://www.4shared.com/dir/18450324/..._Wrappers.html

PRESSED PENNY TUBE LABELS:
there are two types one for M&M tubes to put quarters and pennies in to buy the pressed pennies and a Mentos tube to put the pressed pennies in. You give them to your children with quarters and pennies inside so they can make press pennies as they find machines all over the park. There is actually a website that lists where the machines are and what the picture is that they make. Then you can use them in scrapbooks or even make bracelets with them for girls.

LAUNDRY TUBE LABELS:
these are similar to pressed penny tubes but instead you can keep laundry money in them.

KIDS JOURNALS:
journals for your kids so that they can write in them at the end of the day so that they can have a record of the wonderful memories. Natalie has elaborate pages that you can use or you can download one that uses less ink and is set up in a Word document here: http://www.4shared.com/dir/21423885/...s_Journal.html

AUTOGRAPH BOOKS:
Penny (Chaoscent): http://s226.photobucket.com/albums/d...1Cent/?start=0

http://share.shutterfly.com/share/re...8AaN2Llq0btXHQ

PILLOWCASES:
If you don't want to carry around a photograph book or you want something fun to have signed at character meals, you can make autograph pillowcases. They are also great to take on a cruise and leave with a CM on the first day and they will have the characters sign them. They are also fun to make to decorate the beds in your hotel room.

EPCOT PASSPORTS:
These are lots of fun to take around to the different countries in Epcot and CM’s from that country will stamp and write a note in their native language. Natalie has some great Epcot Passports that you can make for your family in her file http://s143.photobucket.com/albums/r132/donatalie or here is another thread with a different passport DISign: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2195829

DOOR MAGNETS:
If you ever go on a Disney cruise you will need to make magnets for your door. Milliepie has some wonderful DISigns in her files:
http://www.4shared.com/dir/19077581/...0/sharing.html

FISH EXTENDER:
you will have to make or buy a fish extender and participate in a gift exchange if you go on a Disney cruise. Here is a link to Fish Extender thread so you can find out what it is and how it works: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1219607

here are two places to find them http://www.4shared.com/dir/18428241/...d/sharing.html or http://s387.photobucket.com/albums/o...isney%20Stuff/

DISNEY DOLLARS:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1756989
Make a chore chart for each child and at the end of the week give them "Disney Dollars" to keep in a Disney money envelope (look for DISigners that make these on this site). The "Disney Dollars" represent the money that they have earned and can spend while at the World. It is fun for them to collect and if they loose them...there is no real money lost before the trip. Then right before you go, count and collect the Disney Dollars and trade out for the real thing that you keep in your backpack/purse for spending money while at the World with a personalized disney money envelope. That way each child's money is secure and you can quickly tell each one how much they have left to spend.

PLACEMATS:
these are great if you are staying in a condo

Here is a thread with pictures of gift baskets made by Shirley for disney cruises...I bet you will find some cute ideas for putting one together yourself!:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1723220

COUPONS:
lots of families like to present their kids with coupons for different things like one free Mickey Ice Cream Bar, Balloon, Ornament, etc. You can find some in Natalie’s or Wendypooh’s files or at this link:
http://www.4shared.com/dir/27674250/...-_Tickets.html

Question: The DISigner has posted the images or thumbnails to the thread. What do I do next?

Answer:
Click on the image and open in photosharing site. Be sure you have maximized image and are not looking at a thumbnail.

Look for a download button (middle right hand side on Photobucket) and download image to your PC.

Do NOT right click and save or you will not be retrieving the full resolution image. You MUST download.

Now you have the image(s) and are ready to print!!

Please do not violate Disney copyrights....we expect you to print yourself in most instances.
