Not too original, but working on adding some for our Easter 2013 cruise! Thanks to all the great DISigners out there

PS - Does anyone use their magnets from previous cruises? I feel like some of these are too cute to not use again!

It took weeks.
love your fish extender. Love the design.

I had someone print the Mickey Ears for me but they are 11 1/2 by 12. I have 3. Will they fit on the door?

How is everyone cutting some of these intricate shapes out and laminating them? Are you cutting by hand, or using a Cricut or other machine?

I used magnetic paper from Office Depot on my home laser printer. Worked great, no lamination.

Transport tips for the Magnets

The artwork is gorgeous, have printed them out at home but am finding they do scratch easy (used photo paper) and then magnet paper to give them substance, the actual magnet paper won't fit through my printer. Any good tips on getting them to the ship and home again for the next cruise with the least wear? Wax paper between or any other suggestions? We do have to fly so I know they have to go in the checked luggage which will be tossed around. Thanks for any tips or suggestions- anything that has worked well for anyone! I'd be devestated if they arrived dinged and scratched as they are so pretty right now.

Laminate them. I did and it worked very well.

Unfortunately

I already glued a backing onto them to that they would not curl- a thin piece of wood but it makes them to bulky to laminate. I have done about 20 magnets from 4" to 8", just had realized how fragile they would be.

Since they are already stiff how about layering pieces of felt between them. You can purchase the at Wa,Mart or a craft store for around 20 cents each b
