    Hermosahoops,

    I got 4"x2" metal boxes with lids from papermart.com, they were about $17 for 24 pieces. I've seen girls use a lot of different containers for their emergency kits, but I liked the idea of having a cute box that could be reused again so I went with metal. They are sturdy, but not heavy at all, so that is good. I bought labels at Staples and printed them today, super easy. Papermart has lots of great stuff that might come in handy to you, prices are good too, and they had tons of boxes to choose from, sure you'll find something on that site.

    Also, my aunt was looking for tulle fabric for my bridal shower and she found a website that has the craziest prices that I have seen yet. www.gifts-us.com. She ordered satin ribbon for me, 1/4" ribbon 100 yards for $2.00. They also have bags and wedding favors, suggest everyone check them out, most competitive prices I have seen yet.

      Ouch! Our final deposit for accommodations is Monday so I'm filling out the credit card authorization forms right now. We're currently 46% over my super optimistic budget I had set when we first got engaged.   We are paying both 100% of my sister and FI's brother's travel/hotel costs, which we didn't originally plan on, but it is worth it to have them there. I guess I really do need to stop buying more OOT stuff!  :(   It looks like parchment envelopes are going to be the way to go for me!

        Thanks for the suggestions though! If I find some extra cash under the couch cushions I'll check out that papermart site!

          Hermosahoops,

          Check out the other forums, there is a thread somewhere for OOT bags. I saw one girl made an emergency kit just using clear plastic cillo bags, you can get those super cheap at the gifts-us website I gave you. She than made custom header cards for the tops, filled the bags, top with the headers and stapled them together. They looked very cute. I'll see if I can find the post and will come back to give you the link.

              Great thread. Thanks uninspired! Sorry for going so off topic. It's been a weird week and I'm all over the place. I appreciate the tips and kind words though. They make a big difference in everything.
