    we have saved most of our Key to the World Cards... I want to do something to save them all in one place... I thought of getting a wallet... I've thought of getting badge holders and tying them together with ribbon... just wondering what others have done with theirs if they have saved them.

    I don't do anything with all of our old cards, but we did do an extended family cruise once for New Years, courtesy of my in-laws. My father-in-law, husband, and then-6-year-old DS took a photo one night with DS sitting inside of a life-sized "frame" that DH and FIL are holding. I framed that picture with all three of their specific card keys around them. They are namesakes - Sr., Jr., and III - so it's very cool. I'm sure my son will love having that in his home some day.......he likes it even now!

    Ours become part of our scrapbooks. I use everything from luggage tags to napkins to the little covers on the glasses. It all becomes background or accessorizes the main pictures on the page.

    The ebayer is TRYING to sell the lanyards -- I wonder what they'll actually go for.

    (slightly off-topic) After the first DCL Hawaiian cruise, people were trying to sell a set of four gift napkins with napkin rings on ebay. They're machine-embroidered with the Disney characters and the date of the inaugural cruise, and they are cute, which is why I'd like an additional set, but sellers were trying to get more than $100. for them. They've since dropped to a more realistic price, but they're still more than I'm willing to pay.

    I've made wall art with Starbucks gift cards before by gluing them side by side in the shape of a square onto posterboard. Then I used ribbon to hang it onto the wall. If you have enough cards you could do the same thing. Unfortunately I don't have enough yet, I guess that means I need to take more cruises!

    I'm interested in seeing this idea. Do you have any pictures! We have tons of KTTW cards, and i'd like to do something other than keep them in a box.

    Mine, too. I have a whole box of Disney scrapbooking stuff I've been collecting for years. Spent a small fortune. Never done a thing with any of it. :lmao:

    I took an extra KTTW card on my Dream cruise in June & use it to keep the lights on! That way I had my active one w/me & didn't accidently leave it in the room. :cool1:

    I got my DS a guitar pick punch last Christmas, and he made a bunch of picks from his old KTTW cards. :goodvibes

    We have all our room keys dating back to 1978 in a business card folder that we purchased at Staples.i think you can also get them at a good camera store. It's nice to look back and remember the trips we have taken

    Great idea, I guess you need a special cutter for that?

    Yeah, it looks like a big-ish stapler. It's really cool -- he had so many old KTTW cards, arcade cards, etc., that he was able to turn into momento picks. I got it at Think Geek. :goodvibes
