Homemade FE Gifts Photos-Part 2

I notice that the previous thread on homemade FE Gifts has been closed for some reason.

I finally have ours ready to post, so I thought I would start a new thread.

If you are on the 4/25/12 Magic cruise to Key West, please do not look.

You can highlight the areas in front of the links to see an item description. Like I said, don't do it if you are on the 4/25 sailing, unless you want to spoil the surprise.

Here is a duct tape wallet my son made http://i798.photobucket.com/albums/y...0414_13149.jpg

Postcards http://i798.photobucket.com/albums/yy267/1153rsmith/Fish%20Extender/DSC_0103_20120414_13157.jpg

First aid kits designed to hook on belt loops or backpacks http://i798.photobucket.com/albums/y...0330_12948.jpg
Paper Star Christmas Ornaments http://i798.photobucket.com/albums/y...0414_13151.jpg
Mickey Mouse Confetti http://i798.photobucket.com/albums/y...0414_13156.jpg
I think they all turned out pretty good. What do you guys think.

Using a rotary blade, I cut the length to 11" and stitched the two sides together 1/4" from the ends. The key fob hardware then clamps to the stitched end covering that stitching. For ease of handling, I worked on sections of 44" at a time.
Does anyone know where you can get the key fob hardware that is not online? I just wanted to give it a try and make a few for the kids before ordering everything. I tried Joann's and michaels and both thought I was nuts, I even pulled a picture up on my phone to show them what I was looking for. TIA.

The only link that worked for me was the one for the postcards. They looked great. All of the other links said the "page couldn't be found".

This is awesome! I may use that.

I have made Disney word finds and found lots of other printable Disney puzzles, coloring sheets and even DCL recipes. I'm ordering postcards from VistaPrint, ordering some magnets and making more, making Mickey Head luggage tags, pirate themed photo frames and photo key chains with a graphic that has our cruise date and itinerary and putting in Disney pens and crayons.

I had no luck at Joann's, hobby lobby or Michael's. Finally found them on Etsy but they are also available on EBay.

We just got back from the Mexican Riviera Cruise a few weeks ago and we had some of the most wonderful FE gifts But now that were back and things have calmed down I just wanted to post my FE gift. My idea came from last thread and after going back and forth trying to decide what to do I'm glad I did this....I just hope everyone else did to

These are the coasters that I made and gave out...of course I had to keep a set for myself

You can see everything and they are really cute. I like the star.

Thanks everyone who answered my question regarding the key fob hardware. I will try ebay.
