    Hi Everyone-

    I'm working on my FE gifts and I need some advice on magnets for the bottle cap magnets I'm making.

    Does anyone have advice on a type of magnet to apply to the back of the bottle cap and where to purchase? Also, how did you attach them?

    Thanks so much for the help!!

    If you go on Etsy and search for Magnets you will find the ones people use for the bottle caps. I have seen them for about $7 for 25 magnets

    Our AC Moore also carries them. If you have a coupon they are relatively inexpensive.

    Those of you that posted pics of your gifts and FE are so talented! I kinda envy that, because I feel like mine are far from imaginative.

    Hi, a newbie here with a quick question...There are 57 adults and 46 kids in our FE group. I was going to just make the gifts for just the kids unless there wasn't any kids in their cabin and then I was going to make them for the adults. Is this appropriate? I was just worried that I would need 2 more suitcases just for just the FE & I just found out that our budget airline charges $26 for each carry-on! ACK!!! Also has anyone had any good/bad luck with shipping things to the boat ahead of time? I am really nervous that I will make all of these and then they will be lost. Thanks so much in advance for your expertise!

    I shipped my stuff ahead of time for the last cruise and it worked out great. As I always thought, FE is for everyone, not just kids. There are many who cruise without kids, me being one lol. :)

    Yes, we were really lucky! I must say that this was the best FE so far; just so many wonderful gifts.:artist: I am using one of the coasters right now, thank you.

    I'm honoured! I enjoyed participating and couldn't imagine taking a cruise without doing the FE. I loved all the gifts we got and my sons reaction when we would return to our room and find gifts!

    Not all Disney-themed. Some folks do things from their hometowns and lots of people do pirate things or cruise survival items. Whatever suits your fancy really! Have fun!

    okay, love LOVE the key chain idea. we have several of them and I just yesterday put most of them out to good will, but that would be the best idea so we can always remember but not have to use a lanyard. any chance you would share with me how you did it? I tried looking close at your photo but I can't get in close enough.
    dh would think this is the best.......
    your brilliant!

    Ok, my DH sewed our FE (yes, I did say DH!!):rotfl2: but he doesn't know how to add the names.

    I thought I'd ask for suggestions -- we leave in 5 days so it has to be super quick. Should we just try to find a pin with our names on it (maybe somewhere at WDW) or do you have another idea?

    Worst case, if we don't have names at all, would it be that bad? There are 4 of us (Darth Vadar, Ariel, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty pockets) but really, most of the stuff would be for the kids anyway...

    Other suggestions?

    Thanks guys!!

    Do you have a printer? I use dark fabric printable iron on transfer paper for my FE's!

    OOh, I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the idea! I can stop by ACMoore/Michaels/Joanns and see if they have some. I even have a 50% off coupon for tomorrow!
