1. cut 16"-18" piece and burn the 2 ends together(that the center cord)
2. cut a 36" piece or (2) 18" if you want a 2 color....and watch the many video to show u how to do a cobra braid.

I got the idea from my son who got a paracord braclet from boy scouts also.

If you really want them to be the best, then you should use fabric markers. I have pillow cases signed with sharpies and ones signed with fabric markers and the fabric markers "wear" MUCH better!! JMHO
Oh, and I 'think' that they look better with multiple colors. You don't have to use a bunch of colors but two or three colors on a white pillow case looks SO much better than just Black. Well at least IMO.

I am super excited. I showed my DH some of the FE gifts I had been working on today and he asked me where I bought them I guess they have turned out good. I would tell you all but we don't sail until September (of next year). Ok yes I am starting a little early maybe but it keeps the magic alive.

Y'all are so creative. I wasn't thinking of doing anything then I looked at this thread. Would it be dumb if I made deck of card sized first aide kits? I'm graduating nursing school and figure that would be really practical (people on a ship with kids, clumsy people, drunk people, etc). Fit it with a couple Mickey bandaides, alcohol wipes, maybe some gauze? For scrapes really...

Nothing wrong with that idea. That would be nice to have.

I think it's a perfect idea! Target has Mickey and Muppet band-aids right now!

I did something like this for our first FE, I bought the 1.00 first aid kits that are in the travel size section of the pharmacy, and then I added pooh stickers and with a sharpie wrote Oh bother. People seemed to really like them, they had commented on our meet thread after we got back. You could get favor boxes at the craft store and dress them up with disney stickers, or quotes. Watch for 1/2 off coupons for your local stores, (I have a Michael's and AC Moore) and get a disney scrap book kit, you could use the paper stickers etc to make the little boxes personal. Its really easy even for those who are craft challenged like me! Good luck!

I think it is a great idea. I plan on doing something similar, an Alaskan shore excursion emergency kit with disney klenex, hand warmers, bug repelent wipes and maybe Life Saver candies or something. Still working on the details. And congratulations on nursing school. It is a challenge, having done it myself (16 years ago). Can't imagine it has gotten any easier.
