I am glad that I was able to sew a little seed. This is such a wonderful hobby.

You can either buy the bottle caps with a hole punched, or without. The punches are in the jewelry making section at Micheals/JoAnns. I picked out my jump rings first, then got the sized punch to match (they are in mm - of course I have thrown out the packaging so I don';t know the size I bought!) it will probably take a few tries to get them right! Then set yourself up at a table with 2 sets of pliers, jump rings, charms, chain & clips. I found it easier to cut all the chain first, & attach to the clips, then I attached all the charms at the same time. Doesn't take a huge amount of time, if you are organized.

You will also need a 1 inch punch to punch out the bottle cap images. I use a little hot glue to stick them, then carefully (NOT touching the sticky side) put them on top.

I have images if you want me to email them too.

Good luck!
Was wondering if I could get them emailed to me?! I am in love with that whole idea! SOOO doing this!

Start with it folded. I believe for two cup I did red row of duct tape o bottom, then gold row starting at top edge of cup part, then black strip over leaving a bit of red and gold showing,(go all the way around) I then did a red strip at top folding over (so half strip) then covered top with a couple rows of white. (For top part i did one side at a time instead of going all the way around)

I used an exacto knife to cut through at the right spots. It helps to look at is unfolded to see where you need to cut. I found using the sheets of duct tape from craft store easier for making the circles. Fantasy I just printed, laminated and glue dotted.
The main difference for four cup was an extra black row and the cutting was a bit awkward. It might be easier with a different type holder. I had Chick-fil-a holders and the 4 cup curved at top of cup part.
Hmmm... Maybe I will get a couple more and take pictures of the process.

I found this online doing a search if OP doesn't respond. It was a PERFECT photo step by step. If you PM your email address, I'm quite certain I have the file.

This is one of the gifts we gave out for our Alaskan cruise. We passed them out before we got to Tracy's Arm on July 4th, so that they could be used during the cool day going through the fjord and glacier viewing.

My son loved his beenie and still wears it

Chalkboard art FE for my upcoming cruise. This is my first homemade FE and I think I'm hooked! I have so many more ideas running around in my head

Very nice! So when are you going to post the step by step instructions?

MnMzMoMi4LiFe, I'm happy to post the instructions. I posted them on the DCL FE Facebook group page so as far as I'm concerned they're public domain

Chalkboard Art How-To
1. In a photo editing program such as Photoshop Elements, open up a jpg file of the chalkboard background. I found mine by Googling chalkboard art backgrounds and then I right-clicked and saved it to my computer to use.
2. All of the fonts I used are free online to download, most of them I think I found at dafont.com.
3. Use the font Newport Classic for the words, "Disney Cruise Line'.
4. Open up a file containing the image of the name of the Disney ship and copy that name over to the chalkboard background and resize it to your liking. Again, I found my image by Googling DCL ship logos and looking at Images until I found one that I could right-click and save.
5. Here are a list of fonts that work well as chalk-style writing fonts or images: Grutch Shaded, Bergamot Ornaments, Birmingham, KR Down by the Sea, Handy George, Lucida Handwriting.
6. For my chalkboard art I used Wingdings 2 and Mickey Mousebats for some of the images.
7. For my chalkboard art I used the following fonts for the various words/images:
• Grutch Shaded - Cruise date, "Grand Cayman"
• Bergamot Ornaments - "To" image, the swirls on both sides of "To", the scrolls on the sides, and the divider above and below "Magic"
• Newport Classic - "Disney Cruise Line"
• Wingdings2 - Hand image
• Birmingham - "Key West"
• KR Down by the Sea - Shell image
• Handy George - "Cozumel"
• Lucida Handwriting - "Castaway Cay"
• Mickey Mousebats - Mickey head image
8. Once you have your chalkboard the way you want it, print it out in the size you wish to use. Just print it on a regular printer using regular copy paper.
9. Cut out the chalkboard art image, then adhere onto surface of your liking. Spray adhesive works best because it doesn’t get the paper wet which will make it wrinkle or bubble up. I adhered my chalkboard image on canvas board, but blocked canvas or wood can be used as well. You may want to paint the edges of your background surface black.
10. Once the image has dried on the background surface, spray it with a few coats of matte sealant to seal it.

I'm sure there are other ways to do it but that's how I made mine. Hope that helps!

Magnet question.... When you print magnets on card stock and then put them on the stick-on magnet sheets, do you laminate before sticking? Or just do clear contact paper on top?

I have decided I am doing the FE exchange on my December cruise.
I am not crafty but I do have a hot glue gun which I think is half the battle?

Anyway, for anyone that is really in the know, is it really that much more cost effective to buy one made than make your own? I am up to do both so whatever you think, I will end up doing

Thanks.

Doing something similar, but my cruise won't be 'til 2015.
I L O V E this idea and since I am not crafty it could work.
I could make a label that says Castaway Cay and our cruise date and give it
out and people could fill it. Would that be okay for a FE gift?
Also, have to fly and doing 3 nights at Disney and then cruise so my luggage will be at the weight limit.

Also, do we put a note on our FE on who it came from?
Thank you.
