[QUOTE="Dzhenna"]I've been a lurker on this thread for months, but got so much great inspiration from the two homemade FE boards that I wanted to share the gifts I made.

Originally, we had a fairly small FE group, so I planned for gifts that were a bit more time-consuming. That was a big learning, as there was a big wave of participants that came in at the end. I still had a great time making everything, but there were some long nights in the weeks running up to our departure to make sure I finished.

So, here's the results-- sorry I couldn't figure out how to actually post the Pictures here:

I've also assembled as many of the pictures as possible from these two threads on my pinterest page]

Wow! Thanks for sharing your Pinterest page! So many great ideas!

For those who asked for the drink carrier tutorial-

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....4#post47467774

It is my first tutorial. My DD is going to make it user friendly but while we wait for that you will have to put up with my oversized poorly colored photos.

Just keep in mind that whatever you do/give away will be very much appreciated-- especially by the kids! DD LOVED checking the FE and it was the first thing she did every morning. So, don't stress yourself out and have fun with it.

And if handmaking something stresses you out , buy little gifts instead. I'd say that in our exchange, there was about a 60/40 split of purchased/homemade items-- and they were ALL loved!

That is such a unique idea!!!! If I wasn't leaving in three days, I would make some of these! Oh well....next cruise!

I hand pianted (not so well on some) mickey heads on the side of the dice with 1 dot, decorated the dice holder and then included some games along with balnk paper that could be played with the dice. I also made pens to match.








Love, love, love this idea. I would love to know what games you included and what you used for the cups.

For my last cruise I gave a CD of cruise-style music and an 8 1/2 x 11" plastic pouch with a velcro closure with a cruise or Disney-themed sticker on the front. I put a note on the inside indicating that the pouch was for them to fill with cruise memories such as Navigators, photos and more. I got the pouches at an office supply store and the stickers came from eBay. It was easy and hopefully useful for all.

what did you use to personalize the mugs? Cricut vinyl?

for lighterwieght projects like tags you can use cereal boxes. It is also pretty green!
