    I have not had a problem with any other image, just this Liberty one. As a matter of fact, I downloaded the Sailor Hat ears at the same time and that one looks fine.

    Just throwing in possibly relevant detail.

    ETA: It's very strange - the Liberty Ears file downloaded smooshed and weird. I uploaded it to Flickr to link and show the difference, but when I uploaded it, the dimensions got fixed/changed and it looks fine now. Here's a screenshot of the two thumbnails. The original downloaded file is on the right.

    I was having the same problem. So instead of saving the image to my computer - I just printed it instead.

    (open the link, right clicked then selected print picture)

    Printed out perfectly

    LOVE the ears!!! Ever think about doing gloves, shorts and shoes?

    I saw a picture someone posted of their door and I have been trying (without much luck) to duplicate that idea.
    Here's the picture

    For one of the days of our cruise, we did a muppet theme on our door:

    Hey Chris,

    Any chance in the Grumpy being designed before November? We are going on the Fantasy with Geoffrey's family and his stepfather name is Grumpy.

    If you can't we completely understand! Hope all is well.

    Fantastic! We found the magnetic paper & your instructions were spot-on! We made some for us & some for or cruise buddies, too. This will really enhance our Hawaii cruise! Thank you so much for making them available to all!!

    You can duplicate it if you had a Cricut Machine and the Disney cartridge. Those cutouts are on one of them I think.

    I was having trouble with various programs resizing the pictures, so I ended up just using the simple "paint" program that comes with all windows machines. That didn't resize them at all. I won't find out til Sunday if they fit though but they measured correctly so that is a good sign.

    Thank you for your designs. We used them on our cruise we are just back from. Just a note for everyone else when printing them out....I noticed that the ones we did on magnet paper didn't stick to the door well (too many layer of paint?) but the ones we did with the magnetic tape were great. Happy sailing!!

    Love all of the magnets!!

    Quick question: I am going to make my magnets from my Cricut using the Mickey body parts. Just wondering how I would make the ears? I am going to do Mickey's hands, feet and pants and put them around my door as I've seen on other auction sites. Just not sure how to go about cutting the ears? Plus I only have the smaller Cricut....so I cannot make them too large. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

    You can just print out the "Plain Ears" from post #1 to use as your ears. You can use as is or laminate. I used clear contact paper to laminate some of my ears - we rotated through four different "ears" during our cruise.
