I have so many ideas in my head that I can't decide on which one I want to make for the family gift. So my thoughts are either:
a. a memory word book "Dream"
b. an autograph/scrap book
c. a 6x6 calendar that would double as a scrap book. The calendar would be for 2013.

If you were cruising with me which one would you want? I know it's hard to decide without a pic but I have not created one of each yet.

Yes! They are all off Ebay, shipped from China - so it takes a while. Then the bottle caps for the key chains are actually in the scrapping section at craft stores. I removed the sticky part & on the back side stuck a DCL logo (the same as the one on the bows) & covered with an epoxy dome

I can probably trace back the seller name if you are interested?

That would be great. I have a partial idea for the future and they would work in just right.

Hardware & Webbing - sewphisticated stitcher or discount embroidery blanks

As for tools, I started using pliers with a washcloth to protect the hardware from being scratched. Then I found a flat jaw welding clamp from Harbor Freight Tools which worked just as well.

Have fun!

Ebay has someone selling 25 keyfob and hardware kits with either 5 or 10 yards (your choice of like 20 colors) of webing.

I know the 5yd kit is $11+shiping.

It's the DCL theme with either Mickey, Minnie...on it. Is that too cheesy/cheap? Should I try to do something else too? All these gifts look amazing! I don't feel mine is adequate enough...
Luggage tags that you laminate, laminated bookmarks are fairly easy. For bookmarks, you can get a laminating pouches for like $20 that can easily accomodate various bookmarks per letter sheet. You can create it in powerpoint or Photoshop or something.

Also, luggage tags are like 50ct for $15 on Amazon. That includes the loops too.

Or you can buy from amazon or OTC or elsewhere, pens and put a clear label with the dates, or a flashlight with the info, etc.

OTC has this cute treasurebox for like $12 or so and it was for 12. it came with jewels and other decorations. Perfect for a "treasure chest" theme. Too late for me to order it though.

Love them all!

I have never made bottle cap anything before but have been inspired so my plan is to make necklaces and magnets. I found plain bottle caps on Amazon and conveniently, the epoxy coverings and magnets were right there
However looking at your things, I realize I will need to buy jump rings (I think that's what they're called??) to attach the ribbon for the necklaces. However I have no idea what tool is needed to make a hole in the bottle caps! Would you be able to tell me what to purchase (and if you have a link to Amazon, that would be great, too!!)

Of course I have to find someone to make the bottle cap pictures! I have no idea how to do that, either! I did stumble upon someone on the DISigns board but don't remember how I found that board and now can't find it!!

We sail July 8....I think I have enough time!!

Thanks for any advice!

Curious if anyone happens to have a cross stitch pattern for the "Fantasy" logo on the ship? And that they'd be willing to share. I've been trying to design my own, but it just doesn't come out looking right.

Thanks in advance!

Can I have the seller's name? Also do you remember how long it took you to get them? We are leaving in 43 days. Thanks!

Key fob charms

OK - the seller is mr_bead88 - a link is http://myworld.ebay.com/mr_bead88/&_...84.m1423.l2754

I'm not sure I'm supposed to post that? Sorry if not!

You can either buy the bottle caps with a hole punched, or without. The punches are in the jewelry making section at Micheals/JoAnns. I picked out my jump rings first, then got the sized punch to match (they are in mm - of course I have thrown out the packaging so I don';t know the size I bought!) it will probably take a few tries to get them right! Then set yourself up at a table with 2 sets of pliers, jump rings, charms, chain & clips. I found it easier to cut all the chain first, & attach to the clips, then I attached all the charms at the same time. Doesn't take a huge amount of time, if you are organized.

You will also need a 1 inch punch to punch out the bottle cap images. I use a little hot glue to stick them, then carefully (NOT touching the sticky side) put them on top.

I have images if you want me to email them too.

Good luck!

Some came really fast, & honestly, some did not! You could always request that they rush ship?
