Using a rotary blade, I cut the length to 11" and stitched the two sides together 1/4" from the ends. The key fob hardware then clamps to the stitched end covering that stitching. For ease of handling, I worked on sections of 44" at a time.

These are amazing!!! I wish I even had a half a brain to do these. My cruise is in 2 weeks and I don't have that much time

Thanks!

I did, in fact, get the ribbon from ribbon scraps. My search on eBay was just "cruise ribbon". I think I used multiple sources overseas for the mouse split rings, though. I will have to check.

Someone (not sure who) on the old thread (I believe), made kits with the phrase 'minnie' emergency kits and an image of minnie.. thought that was really cute.

OK, it's not homemade, but I thought I'd share this bit of insight. My DD15 wanted to decorate her pocket on the FE with a note and an arrow saying "Candy Goes Here"! Guess what she thinks the ideal FE gift is?

After months of reading off and on I finally made it to the end of this thread, after the first one of course!

Thanks for all of the great ideas! I really didn't know where to start since this is our first cruise. I've bought supplies, not sure what I'm going to do with everything yet but I need to get started!

I spend some time this morning taking photos of my Fish Extender gifts. When I am back from my vacation, I can post them here.

For those of you that laminate your homemade gifts, I have a question. Do you use pouches or pockets? For example, I have bookmarks that are 4 to an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper. Can I laminate them together, then cut them apart? Do I need to cut them first and place them in separate things? I have not purchased my laminator yet. I am trying to gather info first, but it is cheaper to buy one than to pay to have my stuff done. TIA.

I did lanyards for everybody on my last cruise and I laminated the name tags just in case they mistakenly end up in the pool. I used my Xyron Creative Station and laminated them with that 3 at a time and then just cut them out.

I would advise that you cut the bookmarks to the size you want them and then put them in the laminator pockets leaving a reasonable amount of space between them.

You want to make sure that each bookmark is laminated on all four sides so they dont peal apart. If you were to put a 8x11 piece of paper into the laminator and then cut the bookmarks once you are done you end up with unsealed sides. Either way works, I have just seen better results with all four sides sealed. You may get one less bookmard per laminator page.

Good Luck!
