      Oh, I do think we're doing paper bags for the single guys so I can put all of their goodies in there. I just don't see them carrying around our canvas bags!

        What type of iron on paper did you buy? I bought my bags at hobby lobby and are thicker material. I also bought paper that did not seem to transfer very well. Any recommendations?

          I bought some at the Dollar Store that were a very, very thick paper. Then Hobby Lobby had a sale on their canvas ones and they ended up only being a dollar also...so, I switched!

          I am keeping the paper ones and will use them for gifts at my Bridal Shower and they will also be the OOT bags for the kiddos!

            I like the idea of doing a canvas bag with a monogram that says the place and date. Because the place and date will be meaningful to all your attending guests I think they will continue to use these items. If however your names are very large then I'm not so sure if people will use them past the weekend.

              We got canvas bags (red and white) and are fastening a tag with our monogram on one side and "welcome to paradise" on the other side. That way the bag is plain if they choose to use it again.

                I am probably going to do canvas with a logo that does not include our names, but the same logo as used for other items that do ahve our names.

                I am trying to find canvas backpacks for the guys... I did find them some where... I cannot find them now!

                Tammy(host) I really like your tees and bag logo!!! I had not come across it before :)

                    Great idea to not make the name the main focal point. I might put our names on there small. So I need to make a 3rd version of our logo now.

                    Did people put their names on the other personalized gifts like cups, etc.?

                      We are putting "I heart Muzzafoos" on koozies, tshirts, and lip balm. That's a combo of our last names - so sort of!
