I ordered the chapstick from LipBalmExpress.com and I love it! I ordered the watermelon flavor and it smells great. The cost was around $57.00 for 100 lip balms and shipping. You pick the color of the cap and the text and you get three lines to type in your info...it was SO easy.

You probably will have to use super glue or rubber cement or one of those multisurface glues in the hardware section to get it to stick to the plastic.

Goodluck!!

I purchased the books from Oriental Trading (DYO! HARD COVER SPIRAL NOTEBOOK) they were 8 for $9.95. I then designed each of the pages, printed in color, cut them out. I pasted three pages of the notebook together to make the pages more sturdy and make the notebook appear more full. Finally, I pasted in the 19 pages I designed into the notebook. I used a sticker for the front cover.

On the inside cover I used a self adhesive business card holder from Office Supplies | Buy Discount Office Supplies, Office Furniture, Chairs, Breakroom Supplies, School Supplies, Ink And Toner (Vinyl Holder, 2"x3-1/2", 10/PK, Clear). I purchased 50 for 13.45 including shipping. I printed the photoshare cards through Vista Print and stuffed a couple in each book.

I will try to get the templates for the pages soon. I had a friend design them in publisher and he is going to convert them to adobe for me. I asked him to do it earlier in the week because I just knew someone would ask for them!

By the way, the books are amazing, but they are SO much work. I am not sure if you have a big group or not, but it is a serious time commitment.

If I had to do it again I would take it to kinkos or print it on card stock myself and then have them cut it and put in a spiral binding. With 19 pages it would have been worth it considering the amount of ink and cutting and the minor cost of the binding at kinkos it might even have been cheaper.

Good luck!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
