    There is a whole post on koozies (insulators) somewhere on the site. Tons of people are doing them - including me!

I am going to put ; jamaica brochures, a little 25 cent tropical calendar from Micheal's craft store and a mini rum cake from Rum Cake Fairy bakes gourmet dessert cakes nestled in a hand-crafted keepsake hatbox for all occasions and gift giving that will be decorated in my welcome package.
      Did you find a good price for clear luggage tags. I've been looking and the est I've found is for approx $8 for 5

        Hi , I picked up the tags from Staples. I only got 25 pack instead of the 50 pack , so it was a little less. Here is the link that I found.Staples.com®. that was easy®. . I think the tags that you are refering to are self sealing tags which I think I am going to buy next because it will be a pain in the butt to go to staples and get the original tags that I bought laminated for .99 for a letter size page, or like 8 tags. The self sealing tags make it easier for me to do the tags one by one as people rsvp instead of having to do batches. Please let me know if I can be of further help.

            Ann I had stumbled upon this website a couple of months ago. I was planning on buying the flip flop candles ($0.89 each pair) and instead of giving them out as favors, I am going to ask the resort to fill a martini glass with water at each setting and let the candles float in the water. Then I plan to tie a ribbon around the glass that says "The Perfect Pair". I just think it will look cute and give some color to my table.

              Wow Kay. Thanks for the link to staples... So are the kind that you led me to the kind that you have to laminate yourself? How hard is that. I didn't quite understand. Or are these the easy ones? Thats a great price.

                  That really is a cute idea - I'm adding it to my list of stolen ideas!

I think I will do favors just beacuse I like this one and my fiance does too.

                    Those are cute. I am getting those for our favors, but I am putting them in the OOT bag so people dont forget them!

                      Ditto on the reco for My Wedding Favors - great site! Someone mentioned Two Hearts Wedding Favors also - I took a quick peek and can't wait to check it all out! The prices seemed lower at Two Hearts . . . I've been bargian shopping for a few different favors, so this will be a huge help!

                      BTW, I am so impressed with everyone's creativity!
