Ok, the coasters were chipboard 4" coasters puchased online, I think they were $15 for 100 and I think that included shipping. Chipboard is like a hard cardboard. They were white on both sides.

I used the blue "water paper" on each side, applying with Mod Podge. I used my Cricut and shapes from both Mickey And Friends and Mickey Font to cut out the shapes. I know the Mickey letter heads were cut at 3" and the others you just have to experiment with. Once everything was glued down with the Mod Podge, then it was a matter of two more coats of Mod Podge to each side.

Then they seemed sticky, so I read up on them at it said you should spray with a clear coat. So, I sprayed both sides. Waited a few days and put them into plastic gift bags. Guess what? A week later they were still sticking, so I took them all out and layed them around my dining room floor for almost a month. Sadly, they were still sticking on the cruise, so I took them out of the bags and pulled them all apart. At least they could be pulled apart and no damage done, I guess it's from humidity and heat?

They really were simple to make although time consuming with all the steps and drying time. If anyone knows of tricks to keep them from sticking, please post!

I was thrilled on the bus back to the car when one person said her favorite FE gifts were my coasters and the fabric holder I made for them as well.
Thanks so much, and yes, if anyone has any suggestions to prevent sticking, I'd love to know. We don't cruise until December, but I am thinking of trying to do most of our FE gifts while on summer break from school.

My husband is bothering to ask you if it is possible to find out where you got the decal. Any help will be appreciated.

Hahahahahaha, that's funny!

Hi-2 questions: where did you get the beautiful pillowcase and is that a regular photo mat that you got? Thanks

The photo mat is from Michael's and came with the silver pen.

I made the pillowcase myself.

I can't wait to share my FE gifts! But I can't yet - we sail May 4th... I don't want to ruin the surprise if anyone from that cruise is checking out this thread

I'm excited to pass them out!

I can share mine now!


Each cabin got a frame-the 2 shown are just samples-I had several designs. Younger girls got the duct tape bows and headband. Boys got autograph books and pens. Magnets with our cruise dates, some kids got custom zipper pulls and 1 teen boy got a funky wind up metal toy(sounds babyish, but it was REALLY cool!) I also gave each cabin Buttered RUm lifesavers and each child a "Design your own Pirate scene" sticker page with stickers.

oooh, I love the idea of the butter rum lifesavers. Did you have to find each package seperately, or were they in the larger packages for you?

I am also " borrowing" your idea for the Butter Rum lifesavers ! I wrote it down in my little notebook I have by the computer as my head is filled with FE ideas!

I found the buttered rum lifesavers at MICHAELS! The first batch I got they had the box out and there were 10 rolls, so I bought them all. A few weeks later, after they had restocked, I got 4 more rolls to finish off our FE group so each cabin got a roll. Each roll was $1 and has 14 candies.

thanks for the info, and it would've been great on my recent Caribbean cruise. Next cruise though will be Wonder to Alaska, maybe a "wintergreen" life saver?

I know we don't have much time...I'm glad you started the process going and hope we can get enough. I think with what ever we get would be good, just to get into the spirit of giving...you know the "Aloha".

Hey PM me your name b/c we have so many relatives on Maui that we may even be related....lol
