question for dolphingirl47

dolphingirl47,
I love all of the items that you made. They are gorgeous. What size swivel hooks did you use?
Thanks, Barbara

Thanks for the size. I have been looking at swivel hooks on ebay (for fe gifts) and wasn't sure what size to get. Yours look just perfect.
Thanks again, Barbara

Dolphingirl47, those are some of the most beautiful gifts I've seen to date. I'm going to show all the clay/Fimo stuff to my daughter and she's going to be jealous.

Very nice job!

If its ok to use square shaped post-its, Staples has them on sale this week in their dollar deals. I think its 15 pads 3x3 for $5!

lakeside.com has some too. Not sure how much they are but I remember seeing them there too. Mine are the staples variety. The actual "Post it" brand would be too costly!

I made these for my FE gift in March, I went to Joann Fabrics w/ a coupon and got them 1/2 price. They were 6 for $3.50 or so?

You can usually find the coupons online if you don't already get them.

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.
How did you get the post it's to stay on without drooping down?! I tried one and the pad seemed like it was going to fall right off!

I used the double sided take and used 3-4 strips of the tape. I did have the post it notes on when I packed them and when I got to the ship some of the post-it-notes were coming off. Luckily I had the tape with me.

So glad you liked them! I know what you mean about the postcards. There were a few left that I sent to folks back home...had to contain myself so I would have a couple left for scrapbooking!

I love the Fimo mickey heads. How did you go about "creating" the perfect shaped (and size) head for the hair clips and pins? We have a ton of girls on our upcoming cruise and I would love to try this. Was it a mold?

TIA
