    Okay, I have only been a part of this forum for less than a week and everyone got me so excited about all the cute things that you can do for OOT bags that I decided I want to do it too! Funny thing is, my wedding is less than a month away (February 15th) and now I have ordered all these things that I will have to make right before we leave LOL.
    I ordered the natural canvas bags from cheap totes and I am going to attempt to buy iron on paper and put a design I made onto them. I've never done any sort of iron ons so if anyone has an tips I would really appreciate it! I also decided I wanted to do mugs but I wanted to personalize them. I actually order these cups that have lids from Oriental Trading and you can personalize them on paper and the paper slides in around the cup! They look sort of chinsy but I think they will do the job. I've also decided to make luggage tags - I got the idea from someone else on here and bought them from Oriental Trading as well and plan on making them myself.
    Anyways! I am so happy that I found this site! You ladies and your ideas are so wonderful!! When I get all of my things made I will be sure to post them!

      Very exciting for you! You will definitely have to post pics! I especially want to see how the cups turn out. Sorry, I don't have any tips on the ironing of the totes.
      HIGH FIVE, WE'RE MARRIED!!!

      As far as tips go for iron ons... make sure you FLIP your document before you print it! there is typically an option that will do this in your printer preferences. I am sad to say that previously I have printed about 20 and went to iorn them on... and WHOOPS all of them ironed on backwards! Dang it!

        Oh no! Thank you for the tip! I'm not quite sure what you mean about flipping the document but hopefully when I buy the iron-on paper it will tell me about that!

              That sounds so great! and I like the idea of the paper in the outside of the cup - you can put photos, etc., as well as a logo. Even customize for individual people... okay, the creative side of my brain is going. I have to go look at what Oriental Trading has!!

                If you go to Oriental Tradings website and just type in travel mug you will see what I am talking about. They sent me a shipping message today - I can't wait to get them!! I will definitly post pictures when I am done!

                  One more tip regarding iron-ons...
                  Make sure to put something with a hard surface under the fabric you are ironing otherwise the print will be light and not all of it will transfer. I'd recommend a baking sheet or cutting board..something that won't melt with heat.
