One more “unique” part of the Disney fan community subculture is the phenomena of decorating your stateroom door. I knew I wanted to get in on the action, but I’m not terribly artistic. Here’s how I made mine, your mileage may vary.
Step 1: Get Designs. Both the Creative DISigns and Disney Cruise section of the DIS have wonderful people who have great designs that can be personalized. I sincerely hope my readers are not stupid enough to try to profit from other people’s designs.
Step 3: Print your pictures. I originally bought the magnetic paper from Staples, but decided I did not want to waste that much printer ink. I opted to print my pictures out using Snapfish, and pick them up at my local Walgreens.
Step 4: Assemble your materials. In addition to your pictures, you will need a few things: Something to laminate your photos with, this step is optional, but I like the extra sturdiness insurance. You can buy self-laminating sheets at Staples. However, I opted to pick up clear contact paper at that exclusive crafting boutique, Dollar Tree. One is a dollar, one is a lot more. For glue, I went with “craft glue” from aforementioned crafting boutique. Magnet wise, I used a couple of old advertising magnets and cut up my magnet sheets. I had bought little “locker” magnets at Dollar Tree as well. (Why is it called Dollar Tree if I never spend just a dollar there?)
Step 6: Place now-laminated picture face down. Cover back with craft glue. Place on magnet.
Step 7: Let dry. Voila, you have door magnets!
Yes, I know I am an utter hypocrite for decorating my door. C’est la vie.
