I really like these. Did you make them or order them?

Thanks! I made them. They look way better than the photo in person. I ordered the graphics on etsy, edited the names/ sayings in Paint, printed them in my printer, used a xyron machine to make it have sticky backs, and used a one inch hole punch to cut the images. Then I used epoxy dots on top on the images and stuck them to the bottlecaps. I punched holes in the caps & used jump rings to attach the 3 parts together.
Not too hard. I do make my own jewelry & am somewhat crafty but they were pretty easy to do.

Ok for anyone who has made the key fobs....what type of "webbing" for lack of a better word I'm guessing...do you use and where did you buy it? I want to make these for our upcoming cruise and I'm lost on where to start! Help!!! I only have a few weeks until our cruise.

[QUOTE=asmith1113;45488570]In the past, my husband did small individual watercolors; this time there were too many, so he did a watercolor and had professional prints made and then matted them. I think it was just as nice. We gave one to each family, in addition to Disney-themed gifts for all those under 21.

We received tons of lovely gifts, but in terms of very unique and noteworthy, we got a group of plastic items made with a makerbot machine that I had never even heard of, but my son had and was thrilled with the items. We also received locally-made soap from one family; that was something we had not received before.

What a talented artist he is. I may have to stalk you so I can be on a trip with you guys one day!!

It is called webbing and you can buy it here along with the metal key fobs. There may be other sites online but I have purchased them here before and have been happy...

Sorry it took me a few days to answer you. Too busy with Christmas to get online for a while

The ornaments are glitter cardstock on a wooden circle. Rather easy and nice and sparkly

These are the coasters that I made and gave out...of course I had to keep a set for myself
What are your coasters made out of? I usually use tile when I make mine but they would be so heavy! Also do u use midge lodge to seal? I made a few sets months ago and they still seem tacky.

I am so glad I have 11 months before our cruise! I went through all 300 pages of FE ideas and my mind is spinning! So excited!

I put "key fob hardware" into a search on Amazon to find the hardware and the webbing showed up as other products I might be interested in. One stop shopping for me.

Found decorative grosgrain on bestribbons.com, lots of Disney designs on there!

I'm only just starting to read this new Handmade FE gifts thread, but I saw your comment and wanted to mention something that I received on my last cruise that wasn't too difficult and I loved. It was a solid colored Mickey head silhouette that was laminated and cut out, then someone took a permanent marker and wrote my and my husband's name on it and glued a magnet on the back. Not to technical and wonderfully personalized. I still have these on my fridge now! Just another idea for those afraid to make anything terribly difficult.

My Joann has webbing in thier ribbon section. You can buy it by the yard. I would check Hobby Lobby too if you have one.

FE and gifts

I don't think I ever got around to sharing my Fish Extender and the gifts I gave for my Fantasy cruise last May.

Here is my FE:



Link to blog post: http://www.kraftingkreations.com/201...-tutorial.html

Luggage Handle Covers:

Link to blog post with link to tutorial: http://www.kraftingkreations.com/201...search-results

Bottle Cap Magnets:

Link to blog post: http://www.kraftingkreations.com/201...p-magnets.html

Mickey boxes to hold one magnet and some chocolate for each person:

Link to blog post: http://www.kraftingkreations.com/201...ndy-boxes.html


We had a really large group, 48 cabins and approximately 250 people. (yes, I am completely crazy). I made 2 luggage handle covers per adult, and one per child. It was so nice seeing many of them in use when we picked up our luggage!

I ended up having a few of the Mickey boxes left with chocolates and a magnet in them. So I gave one to each of the dining staff, and the remaining two to our room hostess. They were all so appreciative of such a small gift! Our room hostess even left us one each of the lotion, shampoo, condition, body wash, and sun gel in return! I just had to make sure I moved them to my checked luggage before we got to the airport. So on my next cruise I will make sure to have a special little package for the staff, maybe including a bit of a cash tip as well as some goodies.
