Disney Fish Extender Gift Albums
This January I am taking my 10 year old daughter on a Disney Cruise. It is a multi purpose cruise. For her it is a Christmas Present, and for me it is a way to celebrate my 50th in Grand Caymen. I have found that on the cruises they have metal fish mounted on the wall outside each cabin. What people do is sew or make these hanging pouches with all the people in the families names on them that look like the old fashioned shoe bags. You then make gifts to put in them for all the people in your group that joined. So far there are 17 families that have joined my group. I have decided to make photo albums. I used cardboard for the front and back and covered it with cardstock. I then cut out a mini cruise ship with my Cricut machine and labeled it Magic, which is the name of the boat. I then cut out an anchor and put the date of our cruise on it. Along the bottom I put Western Caribbean on with my white pen as that's where the cruise is going. I used Disney paper and plain cardstock and embellished with stickers and chipboard characters. Each page has a pocket for any memorabilia the families have from each port of call and they can put a picture on the opposite page. I tied it all together with different colored ribbon. I have made 14 of these so far, but still have another 4 minimum to make. I am also making bookmarks and giving pencils to the kids. Hope you enjoy them.
