If you want to make an ornament that has a more stained glass look to it, print your image on Transparency Film (like used on an overhead projector), it too will roll up and fit into an ornament, just be careful not to scratch the printed side of the film.

I love them. What a cute idea and you did such a great job.

Many people are saying they use the plastic ties to tie on the fish extenders, but if there's ribbon too, can't someone just cut through the ribbon if they want it bad enough?

People are just too callous these days and even on a Dis ship you can't be sure. Just hope none of our gifts mysteriously walk away either.

any other ideas of how to really secure the fe? guess you could put the strap tie through the fabric itself somehow.
Our FE was fine and I didn't zip tie it or anything....and our room was literally just off the mid ship elevators!

However we didn't receive gifts from 2 families in our group (I only know this because our group was very small...10 cabins) and my daughter was excitedly taking pictures as she arrived back to the room and there was a
gift, so I know we didn't get a few things.

Perhaps stolen but we'll never know. I guess if you have a larger group, you wouldn't really notice because who's keeping track, but with a small group it was apparent.

It hadn't occurred to me to be concerned someone would take the actual FE. Ours was personalized so kind of useless for someone else!

My daughter was a little sad to not get all the gifts though, mostly because she helped me make some and deliver and she was surprised some would go missing!

That's too bad. I made quite a few smaller type gifts to give - I have the chalkboards for the kiddos and the notecards for the grown ups but I also made bookmarks last night with pirate riddles on them. I am going to laminate them and add those to the gift - I did a stateroom gift (a paperbag autograph album) for the families w/ kids and s'thing different for the adults but I want to make sure everyone gets a little something in their pocket so I have little gifts for everyone. I want to do a pirate creed but I'm having a hard time finding the paper - ?? I guess I need to try Kinkos - I've tried JoAnne's and Michaels and they don't have what I need. I'll post pics of the albums and the bookmarks when I finish them. I had a Disney book that the binding got completely ruined so I used pages from the book and it turned out really cute!!

For your pirate creed you can try parchment paper. They should have it at staples or office depot. I used it to make ages looking pirate maps for my sons birthday invites. I then tour around all the edges and used distressing ink to make it look aged. Hope this helps

Very helpful! I haven't tried those places yet. I tried the obvious craft stores but not the office supply places. Thanks! I will look.

Another option for aged paper look is to soak it in tea. The paper takes on the brownish color. When it's dry, you can burn the edges slightly. Looks great.

Hi DISsers!
This thread was really important to me in the days/weeks/months that I was deciding what to do for FE gifts, so I wanted to come back and "report"!
We did a one time gift bag for each member of the room, one bag for a "couple". The contents of each bag varied according to the gender and age of the person. Some of what we put in was bought stuff - candy/chips/superballs/gum/notebooks/crayons/pirate necklaces etc. The "special" things were the most fun to figure out and to make. All teens and adults got a lanyard keyring or zipper pull, made by my teens and some by me (only at the end did I agreed to learn to make them, too!). This is the group photo before putting them in bags:



Also, we made up little cups of blue/white/silver sprinkles (Israeli colors) for putting on ice cream. I ordered individual packets of chocolate fudge and tied them together as an ice cream kit of sorts. Here is the "pixie dust" sprinkles:





Adults also got single-serve packets of Turkish/Greek/Mud Coffee - with these instructions on how to make it:



Finally, with the help of the DISsigners and Vistaprint, I had these magnets made:



MOSTLY I had FUN!!!!! It really was!

Hi Laurie,
Love your ideas...the sprinkles are fun....I bet there were jealous passengers at the ice cream station wondering why they didn't have sprinkles, too1!

I agree, it was fun making everything...Zoe was really into it!
