I got my chipboard from Michaels. I would scan the paper aisle for any of the sold out stuff beacuse all that is left is the chipboard. I'd just take it up to the cash with my other purchases and ask if it was ok to take it. I'm sure you could talk to a local scrapbook store for the to keep their chipboards that come with their paper for ya.

I don't know why scrapbook stores haven't clued in to sell the stuff.

There is a closed thread that you might be able to still print a design off of. Go to the Just For Fun section, then Creative Designs (near the bottom of the list) and scroll about halfway down the first page to Mel's Candy Pockets/Bag Toppers.

They didn't have them at my Michael's but I got them off Ebay, around $5 for 50. You can also just pick them up from restaurants, maybe in the bar area. I got a bunch from Islands that are round, but I preferred the square shape for my project.

You guys are all crafty geniuses!!!!! I love everything from the survivial kits (which are perfect for my type A personality lol) to the whimsical scrapbooks, and everything in between! It would be an honor to be in any of your FE groups!

I'm going to have to come up with something lightweight as I'll be flying over from Europe, but you've all given me great inspiration!

Here's an idea that I keep coming back to, we've got a couple of them as FE gifts and use them a lot. Disney music CDs. They are inexpensive to make, can personalize with your selected music, small and lightweight to pack. If I ever have to fly again to cruise, I think I'm going that route.

Nothing made, but if you are going on one of the ships with an arcade, arcade cards were mentioned and I thought that was a good idea. I was also thinking itunes gift cards for the tweens.
Autograph books?

I also made coasters for our FE gifts. I packed about 75 of them in my suitcase. I first packed them in shoeboxes and then filled in the voids in the box with packing paper and then bubblewrap where i could. It took two shoeboxes and our suitcase has straps on the inside so i was able to buckle them down tight to the frame of the suitcase. I then filled in the areas around the boxes with clothing. All said and done it was about 45 lbs, but none broken or damage. The only thing is to expect the TSA to inspect the boxes. I had them taped shut and the opened it, but they retaped it better than I had and their tape is super strong stuff.
