    Nice to hear they did a good job! You really only hear negative things about TSA. Too bad as most that I've come across have been pretty nice. It's the not-so-nice ones that give them all a bad rap. :(

    Haven't made them myself yet, but someone had cool ear bud cases they made with Mickey fabric and caribiners. (Maybe it was on the FE Facebook group). Anyhoo, she also found cute earbuds in the mickey shape for older boys and girls off ebay.

    Good luck!

    I personalized plastic cups with lids and straws, made personalized luggage tags with their name, favorite color, and favorite character, and bought cheap mickey shaped earbuds from ebay in their favorite color.

    I will post pictures next Friday after we board the Magic for our first ever cruise! :thumbsup2 Hopefully no one from our FE exchange is reading this.

    one of these days I'll go back through the entire thread! I started at page 50 tonight and am amazed at all of the awesome FE gifts. I'll def make something myself bc I do think I'm pretty crafty, but not sure what yet. Thanks for all of the inspirations!!!

    posted to offer to make a lifesaver wrapper, but saw that others had already taken care of that request.

    For those that have made heavier, breakable items (ceramic tile coasters, for instance!), how did you transport them? We are driving, so we could bring them with us, but I'm considering shipping them to the port, since that would be quite a bit to lug around until our stateroom is available. I'm just worried about how a box would be handled (shipped or checked with luggage), and obviously would like to avoid any breakage!!

    Thanks for any advice/experience you can share! :)

    We made 100 ceramic tile coasters for sets of 4. I put them all in a box and stuffed shirts around the box. I then put all of our fish extender stuff in its own suitcase. The suitcase was a bit heavy but it worked!:banana:

    So good to hear!!! I will have 120, so that advice is perfect :) Just to sure, you checked that suitcase, correct?

    Thank you so much for your help :)

    Yes, I am so sorry!:) We live 8 hours away so we drove and I did check it onboard. It was much too heavy of a suitcase to carry around. We got to port at 11:00 and the rooms are not ready until 1:30.

    That is perfect, thank you so much for the info!!!!

    I thought the same thing about lugging it around - we have a PAT of 11:30 and plan on exploring a good bit before the staterooms are ready.

    Thanks again, you rock! :)

    I've been a lurker on this thread for months, but got so much great inspiration from the two homemade FE boards that I wanted to share the gifts I made.

    Originally, we had a fairly small FE group, so I planned for gifts that were a bit more time-consuming. That was a big learning, as there was a big wave of participants that came in at the end. I still had a great time making everything, but there were some long nights in the weeks running up to our departure to make sure I finished.

    So, here's the results-- sorry I couldn't figure out how to actually post the Pictures here:

    Welcome packets for each cabin with personalized magnets, wristlet key chains, shrinky dinks key chains, and a wordle souvenir magnet


    Princess/Minnie tutu bags for the little girls

    Appliqued Backpacks for the the older girls and all the boys

    I've also assembled as many of the pictures as possible from these two threads on my pinterest page: http://pinterest.com/dzhenna/disney-cruise-fe-gift-ideas/

    Hope these are helpful! Happy Sailing!
