    I used the base material for the back of mine. I used bias to finish the edge. I made my own bias, but you can buy it pre-packaged too.

    Just a reminder that one of the guidelines is

    1. FOR SALE For sale ads are strictly prohibited on any of the DISboards. Anyone posting such ads will have their post deleted. This same policy applies to links to your ebay/auction listings . "For sale" posts includes requests for donations. If you are participating in or wish to promote a charitable event, please email the webmaster at webmaster@wdwinfo.com for permission first. (You will be asked to provide proof that the organization is legitimate.) Until your request is approved, we ask that you do not post about it on the boards.


    It is a fine line when others are posting what they bought and where when the orignial item was shown on this site. This is a great thread full of wonderful ideas, however if any more "sale" posts appear it runs the risk of being closed.

    Here's the one we used in July. The "P" "D" "Q" represents the last names of the 3 families that cruised together.

    I understand what the fish extenders are and that they are for mail, but do you have to be part of a certain "group" to participate? how does that aspect work? TIA

    When you use the zip tie to secure your fish extender, to what on the fish to you attach the zip tie to? Looking at the fish itself, I can't see where you would put a zip tie.

    Also, what are some of the things that people give in fish extenders. I think this is a neat idea but I can't think of anything to give that people would like.

    I wrapped the zip tie around the back of the fish, where it is mounted to the wall, and through the hanger on the fish extender. Then either cut it off or wrap the extra around the back of the fish. It worked well and you couldn't really see the tie.

    As far as gifts, we were on the 11 night med cruise and had 27 rooms participating in the fish extender gift swap. Some ideas were custom pens with our cruise logo and cruise date. (see July 28, 2007 Rome...ancing the mouse, on the meet board), a deck of disney playing cards, magnets and pins with our logo but you could also use any Disney character, postcards from hometowns or ports of call, a small package of pasta picked up at one of the ports, A small bag of "pirate" things including stickers and pencils etc.., glow sticks, candy, key rings, pads of paper, sticky notes, mardi gras type necklaces, a british flag, dice, and lanyards.

    It was great fun to check the fish extender as we returned to our room. You never knew what would be in the pockets waiting for you.

    The need for fish extenders happened because groups of DISers on particular sailings included a lot of people/cabins (hence the need for more 'room' for treats). These folks all 'met' on their Cruise Meets thread here on the DISboards and a group of people interested in the treat exchange were formed. Now people who are traveling with their own family/friends group that have multiple cabins do extenders for their group of cabins too.

    So yes, you would need to be part of a group of people who agreed to do an exchange.

    We brought the Magic home last Saturday. The Transatlantic cruise. I signed up somewhere along the line to be in a fish extender contest. It was fun especially since we did place 2nd or 3rd, I can't remember wich. It was really cute. Left in our fish extender was an award certificate that said we "chews" you, with a pack of chewing gum taped to the certificate along with a captain Mickey pen. I was so excited because I never have sewed anything in my life and I did all of this with just a needle, thread, and iron for the patches. I think the kids were so proud of me as well!![​IMG] We also added a couple of high school musical pins which probably helped too.

    Go Me, Go Me!!:cool1: :coffee:

    You would get the most decorated door award! Love all the princesses. What is the significance of the ice cream cones? :)

    the ice cream cones were invitations the girls received for a meet and great ice cream social for girls their ages. It was a cute idea to make them as magnets and put them on the doors of the girls invited.
