Don't know how to ask here according to rules. I know there are trades or people selling points but no self advertising. But can you ask if anyone has any item to sell or trade, etc. ?

Sure I would love them. I don't think anyone has offered platinum yet. I will pm you also.

Thanks a million to everyone. I hope all enjoy the wristlets that I make and send in return as a thank you.

Thanks but compared to the people on these boards I am a preschooler with a glue stick. lol This is just fun for me. I love the homemade FE thread. Now there is some talent!! I saw keychains and wanted to order the DCL sailor mouse ribbon to make them but it was suddenly no longer listed on ebay. So -bam- the idea hit me- why not use all those unused lanyards (none of us like things around our necks). Now I am so glad the ribbon was no longer available.

It is like when something happens that is disappointing and then something better comes along.

Like we were suppose to go a a 4 night cruise this September. We picked that cruise for several special reasons. Suddenly our cruise disappeared from booking. We all tried to find out what was going on. It was not official yet at the time but it looked like it was going to become a DVC members only cruise(which it did). Instead of waiting or pouting (too much I started researching. Turns out we were able to go on a 7 night cruise on the Fantasy last month for less than we were paying for the 4 night on the Dream. And then everything just fell into place quite miraculously. We had an amazing trip.

My niece just posted on face book "What if Cinderella made it to the ball in the pink dress? Be encouraged. When the world tears down what we build up ourselves, God is preparing us for something more wonderful than we could ever imagine or hope for."

That is so true. It may be a simple example for what many our going through but I would have never dreamed that we could go on a 7 night cruise much less only 6 weeks away. But it was the best blessing for our family after a rough year.

Sorry to go so off topic but hopefully it is to encourage someone out there

Looks like I've got a new craft! As a PP said about being a preschooler with a glue stick..,I'm the same way! Would someone be willing to PM me step by step directions. I think I might add these to our FE gifts for our next cruise . Thanks!!

I don't have a sewing machine so I'll have to go with heat bond and glue I guess.

I don't have a sewing machine so I'll have to go with heat bond and glue I guess.

-Cut the lanyards into strips (12 inches works nice).
-Cut 7/8 inch satin ribbon for the back. Red looks nice with most designs of lanyards (however I used silver on the back of most silver and platinum lanyards). You can use webbing but since the lanyards are so strong it isn't necessary. It would be a personal preference. I like the feel of ribbon on skin.
-Iron 7/8 inch Heat-n-Bond on back of the ribbon.
-Peel the paper off and iron ribbon onto the lanyard.
-Make a loop. I like to do this while it is still warm, rubbing the top of loop to make sure it stays "bonded" at the curve. I added a glue square or E6000 to give ends for added security since clamp hooks the outsides of lanyard.
-Squeeze metal clamp closed with pliers but with an old towel or t-shirt to protect the metal.
-Put to key ring on the clamp loop.

You now have an amazing keychain and given a lanyard a new purpose in life

You will want to order 1 inch key fob hardware from ebay or amazon. Ribbon and Heat-n-bond from fabric or craft store. Also at fabric/craft store pick up adhesive squares.

Make sure you don't sew with Heat-n-Bond. I made that mistake. I had to take everything apart to clean glue off parts. I also tried just sewing first and didn't like the how there was a "gap" between two surfaces of ribbon and lanyard.

These are the steps that I followed. A more experienced crafter might be able to clean up the directions or add more tips.

Enjoy

I had used all of ours to make FE gifts so I brought heat-n-bond, key fob hardware, glue squares, scissors and pliers with me to the cruise to make them out of the new ones they gave us. You might want to put pliers in bag that you are not carrying on. Security to stop bag in x-ray. Just explained and he decided I wasn't going to take the ship apart. Lol. I was out of ribbon so I made the wristlets double sided lanyards. I like them better with ribbon on the back

Of course I also brought duck tape and little jewel Mickey sticker ons and made an adorable holder for the wave phone and attached to my wristlet. I don't go anywhere without some duct tape!!!

Drink holders I designed with duct tape.

I gave a few of these out too. I added portholes to all though.
And so you see how much I like to repurpose unused things. I had purchased a 40th anniversary reusable shopping bag from Disney store online. When it arrived it was huge but very narrow. Useless until I used it and gold duct tape to make our FE

Ok, the duct taped drink holder is amazing!
You have a real flair for the duct tape, eh? My Girl Scout troop is currently saving for a Disney cruise, if we make it, I'm totally going to have them try and make the drink holders (they are 12 and LOVE duct tape!) lol
