    I just wanted to share with everyone what I've been working on to include in my OOT bags. It's very time consuming but worth it. If you have any questions please feel free to email me!!!

      Wow! These are great!! Very creative! Did you make the photo albums or did you buy them somewhere? They are super cute, and would LOVE to know where I can get them!

      Are most people doing "brochures" of some sort for their guests?? I didn't think to do this, but it seems that a lot of people are putting together itinerarys and brochures to hand out to guests. Is it awful if I don't?

              OOT means "Out of Town." People put together little care packages for their guests who have come from out of town to attend their wedding. In the case of DWs, most of the guests are traveling so DW brides like to make little OOT or Welcome Bags for their guests when they arrive at the resort.

                  These look fantastic! I had the same exact idea! I have many guests that have never met each other before and so I was going to send out a welcome package about a month before the wedding with the same idea! I am going to include a who's who in mine so people can sorta get to know each other before hand! These look beautiful and I can tell you have put a tremendous amount of time and love in each one!

                    I was lucky to have a cousin who does the stampin up and all kinds of awesome scrapbooking ideas. I came up with the idea because she made me an address book and thought it would be more fun to create a personal welcome/photo book. We started with mat board or some type of sturdy card board for the cover and back. Then went to a crafting store (JoAnn's or Michael's) and found some really fun paper/cardstock that is double sided patterns. Then I used a fun crafting machine called: Xyron 900. You feed the fun paper/cardstock through the contraption and it makes it a very durable sticker. I put it on the card board and then cut to fit it. I did the same with the inside of the cover and back. Then with the left over card stock I made pages for the inside to put whatever kind of information you want to put in there for your guests.

                    The photo slips, OMG, what a pain. We ended up finding a bunch of photo albums on sale and had to take them apart manually for them to fit in the books.

                    To bind the books together I used another contraption called: Zutter.

                    Then I bought a bunch of fun stickers to dress the pages up a little bit.

                    This probably sounds easy and really it wasn't too bad, I just didn't have a huge paper cutter that would of been very very helpful and saved a lot of time. But it was fun to be creative!!

                    I'm sure you can find pre-made photobooks or journals at the craft store that would work as well. They have all kinds of stuff out there these days!!
