Love your doors!! Where did you come up with the idea for the Tiara? I love it! The Minnie ears and bow are great too! I always decorate our doors....my next cruise is with my BFF's and we're celebrating our 40 something birthdays...and considering changing up the door design to something more adult and birthday related.....Again, great doors!

Ha! I'm not good with any cutting implement : ) I was just thinking that my mickey ears might have jagged edges if I use scissors. But maybe the magnet paper cuts more smoothly than paper. I guess I'll find out!

OMG...Your door is GREAT!!! Love the crown. Would love a pattern of that.
Also love the oval design on one of the other door that has Dumbo and the ship on it. Could I get a copy of that?
Great Job! ;o)

Many of the designs I used came from this thread:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2897587

Milliepie has a ton of blanks in her Photobucket & 4Shared files.

The stateroom ears came from this thread:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2897587

I printed everything on photo paper, laminated it, and then put magnets on the back. For some, I just used old business magnets from my fridge. After I ran out of those, I bought a role of magnetic tape at the craft store.

HTH!

ETA: I downloaded both the Disney and pirate font from the Internet so I could customize the blanks. The DISigners will do this for you but I needed so many that I didn't want to ask them to customize enough for four doors.

From my weekend cruise out of NYC this past weekend...

FYI - all the magnets you see were cut out using scissors... Just take your time and hold the scissors steady, and steer around curves by moving the magnetic paper only... You will get a smoother looking cut!!!

If you don't mind my asking, what kind of magnetic paper did you use. I've heard many horror stories of it ruining the ink cartridges

I actually use adhesive backed magnet sheets. This allows me to print my designs on regular paper and cut them out as needed.. I order mine ffrom Oriental Trading - 12 8x11 sheets for like $10 bucks or so...

They are easy to cut with scissors too!!

Here is the link to the item#

Hope that helps!!

I had printed my Mickey Porthole Ears wrong, so I took them down after the photo, but We did a Toy Story Theme with our door when we went to Alaska on the Wonder in June
