FE Gifts are too big for the extender

I was so inspired by the gift ideas posted on the boards I probably got a little carried away! I ended up making scrapbooks, autograph books, drink holders, key fobs, coasters, cups, photo albums journals, Hidden Mickey cards, shake recipe cards, pirate scrolls plus several bought items! So now they won't fit in the holder. I bought the mesh laundry bags and put each families gifts in the bags. My concern is how should I distribute them? My idea is to hag the bag from the doorknob. Is theft a problem though? Another option might be to strip tie them to the fish. Would they be able to get them off if they do not have scissors? Would the steward cut it off for them?

Whenever we've received a gift that was too large for the FE, it was either hanging on the door handle or propped against the door on the floor.

Yes, there could be a problem with thievery, but if any of our gifts went missing how would we know? I know I've read of magnets, even FEs going missing (a couple of our magnets from our Med cruise disappeared, but as I had wayyyyyy too many anyway, according to DH), I didn't really stress about it.

We tended to return to our room frequently during the cruise, and kept our FE empty to the best of our ability. That's really all anyone can do.

I would split the bag up, give 2 separate gifts away on separate days. If it all has to go into the mesh bag, and it's all already in the bag, can you just hang it on the Fish Extender?
