This is beautiful.

Thanks! I'm hoping the ladies and girls on my cruise will like them as well!

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.
I would have LOVED to have received these. Your coasters are amazing!

I'm still wracking my brain for ideas for the men and teenage girls in my FE. Any thoughts?

Love your coasters!! I have a Cricut as well. I made some for our last cruise-just found some designs and resized them.

I had the same problem with the tackiness! I was upset when I pulled them apart that some of felt fuzz was left behind from the tile above it. I used the tiles.

I used Modge Podge as my top layer. Thought next time I would use the clear spray sealant, but you're saying that didn't help you either. Maybe it's this Florida humidity for me!

Have you heard of a solution? Would love to know.

Thanks

Has anyone ever shipped their FE gifts to port prior to arrival? We're they delivered to your room? How do you send them / address? Worried about weight in luggage.

I looked into shipping ahead, it would have been $45 UPS and $35 US Postal Service to go from California to Florida. I was also worried about receiving the box too late as I read where one person received their box as they were disembarking. It was cheaper to check on the extra bag at $25 on Virgin America so that's what I ended up doing.

Here are the FE Gifts I made. We had over 135 people so it got a little complicated. I also was doing it for two cabins. This was our first Disney Cruise and first cruise in 9 years. It was a lot of fun and I am impressed by all the thoughtful gifts and trinkets we received from everyone. So thank you to everyone who was on our June 29th Eastern Fantasy Cruise FE exchange!

Survival cord Key Fobs for all the adults:

and Hello Kitty -also showing the backside (the light pink survival cord glows in the dark)

IMG_3222 by brendah2, on Flickr

IMG_3242 by brendah2, on Flickr

Cabin gifts - these had a small first aid kit inside (just some bandaids and a first aid booklet) I covered up the company logo with ribbon from Joann's.

IMG_3491 by brendah2, on Flickr

magnets for the adult men and older boys (12 and up)- a blank magnet is also shown for comparison

IMG_3236 by brendah2, on Flickr

Glass Tile/Pebble necklaces (for all the ladies and girls ages 12 and up)

IMG_3232 by brendah2, on Flickr


IMG_3233 by brendah2, on Flickr

Survival Cord Bracelets for the guys ages 8 to 20- I hope they fit ok!

IMG_3229 by brendah2, on Flickr
and some for both girls and boys

IMG_3219 by brendah2, on Flickr

Treasure boxes for 4 to 7 yr olds

IMG_3234 by brendah2, on Flickr

It did get really complicated and I probably gave some people the wrong stuff because I ended up with extra boxes at the end and I couldn't figure out why. We also had some last minute additions that I tried to catch but we left a week early for 5 days at WDW with no internet access so I missed some posts on our cruise meet thread.

These were the handmade gifts, other things I gave were fuzzy socks, knee high socks, plastic binoculars, bubbles, glow sticks, Hannah Montana and High School Musical pens and stampers, a couple of Disney whiteboards and nightlights, a sheet of Sock Monkey magnets, Star Wars Angry Birds erasers and for the 5 yr old girls, a little handbag.

I sent our FE gifts ahead with some other stuff. It arrived with our luggage to the cabin. However, it was clearly opened/box wasn't in great shape. Nothing was missing, but there was also no note or explanation why it was opened (did the dogs hit it for some reason?).
