I got the clips at the dollar tree; they were with the laundry stuff. They came 6 in a bag. The flip flops are actually key chains. They are rubber instead of foam, so I thought they'd hold up better. I got them at Party City, but I thought I saw some similar on Oriental Trading company.

We returned last week from our wonderful Dream cruise. I went a little overboard making FE gifts. So here they are:
I made these frames for each family:

These are the necklaces I made for the women (they have hidden mickeys in them but you can't see that very well):

These are the necklaces I made for the girls. I tried to give them their first initial with their favorite princess or character:


I also made a post it note holder for each family and a matching Mickey pen:


I also gave each of the boys a plastic sword for pirate night and the men...well the men received this:


It was so much fun giving gifts and coming "home" to our cabin to find goodies in the FE! I highly encourage everyone to participate if they can.

I am getting some last minute FE gifts together now. We just formed our group for next week's sailing. I don't even have the full list yet.

For young girls I have Little Mermaid activity kits and a Princess pen. For older girls, so far I have nail polish with lip balm and possibly some locker magnets. I don't have any ideas for Moms/Grandmas. For Dads/Grandpas I think I'll put together a little packet with the Starbucks Vias and maybe some chocolate covered espresso beans. I had thought about a little thing of Khalua, but I am worried about leaving that in the halls and getting into the wrong hands (teenagers). What do you think? For teenage boys, I found a thing that you can wrap your earbuds around and clip to your keychain or just use to keep your earbuds from tangling. I would pair it with some theatre candy or gum.

How does all that sound? I would love to make some homemade gifts, but there just isn't time. I hope no one on our sailing is reading this.

Your gifts are all beautiful!
Do you have the link for the supplier of the ribbon cords?
Also, did you make the letter designs yourself for the necklaces or did you find them on line? If you have that link I would appreciate it, too!
Thanks!

Everything is awesome! Can I ask how you did the pens? I have tried to do the same, but the paper always crinkles or twists on me when I tried to slide it in!

You are so thoughtful. I always appreciate the handmade gifts. Your FE group was very fortunate to get so many wonderful gifts from you.

I made the pens for my gift. I wrapped the paper very TIGHT around the ink barrel. Slid it in carefully. Then I used the ink barrel to smooth it out a bit. Definitely took a little trial and error, but finally got it to work. I also tried to get the cut/opening part lined up w/ the pen info so it was 'hidden' a bit. HTH

Now tht my two latest cruises are over, I can post what I made. Bewteen the 2 cruises, I had about 50 cabins to deliver to. My original inspiration was the fact that Hawaii was going to be a 15 night cruise and I thoght maybe some poeple could use some games if they had down time in their rooms!

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.
