We thought the rolled piece of paper inside made it look like it was a message in a bottle and looked cute.


We also had a coupon for free business cards so made up those with a little saying on them and the details about the cruise listed on the front. On the back we put our names and our stateroom number. We hole punched the cards and added them by attaching to the ribbon when we tied the ribbon on.

Wow! So creative! I LOVE it!!

Hello!

Now that we are back from our June 6 cruise on the Dream, I can post my FE gifts! Forgive me if someone has already used this idea (I haven't seen one posted), but my favorite gift was a Mickey bar xmas ornament! I think they turned out pretty cute, and I had a ball making them!

I also included a personalized bookmark, goodies from our state, special treats for the kiddos, and a little poem/map to go along with each gift!


I think I will do it again for our cruise next summer too!

I went with a luggage theme - so there's a canvas bag to help cart things around on the trip (or organize your cabin or carry whatever at home)


There is a set of four luggage handle covers to help find your suitcases amid the maze in the port or airport (and to help soften the load of your overstuffed souvenir bag)



There are also keychains (Not as fancy as some of those I've seen on this board...) to keep the memory of your cruise with you throughout the year.

Everything is bundled nicely with a card & poem describing the gift:



I hope that everyone likes them. Credit to the creative geniuses on this board who provided the ideas that led to this FE gift!
Love the luggage handle doohickeys. I'm thinking of doing them next time too!

Many thanks!
These are the instructions that I followed.

Would I use the same basic instructions if I use the chipboard coasters? I'm making for FE gifts and I have to fly, so this would be really heavy with ceramic tiles. Thanks for the link.

I've only done the tile coasters so I can't answer your question. Do a web search on chipboard coasters & see what you find.

Hi guys!

Sorry I am so slow...we are moving in a week, and I am swamped with packing and boxes. I needed a good excuse for a break!

I am happy to share, as long as you are not on the Fantasy May 25, 2013 cruise! Lol! If you are, I guess you know what I am making!

The Mickey Bars are super easy!!! I bought the large pieces of dark brown craft foam from Hobby Lobby. I used a Mickey head cookie cutter and pressed the shape into the foam (this is way easier than tracing). After I cut them out, I glued a popsicle stick between two heads. I bought clear wrapping paper from Big Lots to put over them, and added the ribbon to finish it off. I also printed some small stickers with our cruise info. to place on the bottom of the stick. They were so easy and SO MUCH FUN to make! I love how they turned out!

The only downside I have found is that they are top heavy. They can probably be made to hang straight on a tree, but they definitely want to flip upside down. Because of this, I have considered adding a magnet to the back instead. I think it would be easy to turn them into a variety of things!

Hope this helps and makes sense!

Awesome! And I have some of the supplies already (Mickey cookie cutter!) I think a magnet on the back would be great or punch a small hole in the top for string. Thank for sharing.

Now that the cruise has ended, I will post up our FE gifts that we made for other cruisers. I believe we handed our one to everyone, about 140 of them.





Took me awhile to remember how to sew lol, I hadn't done it since home ec class in junior high!
