    Hi Ladies,
    Just finished my DIY beach and hangover kits for my OOT bags. Figured with such a carppy cool weekend might as well stay in and get a good start on there. So happy with how they turned out. I think they look WAY better then the pics, but it will give you an idea. I used alot of different scrapbooking ideas to get these completed and it took the WHOLE weekend but it was totally worth it.

    For my hangover kit:
    Listerine Strips
    2 Advil pkgs
    (i wanted to put in pepto /immodium - but couldnt find them in Canada)

    For my beach kit:
    Hand Sanitizer
    Body Butter
    SPF chapstick

    I used clear plastic bags ordered from "Stampin Up" for both the hangover and beach kits.

    The beach kits: made tags from regular aqua cardstock, added white glossy paper, stamped with versamark, and brayed across the glossy stamped paper with the coca ink. Used Shell stamps with black ink and embossed them both and cut them out and pasted them on. I punched holes in the top and strung aqua organza ribbon through the holes and tied them into bows. Then I use blue staples to attach the tags to the bags.

    The Hangover kits: made tags from the same aqua cardstock. Used an alphabet stamp and stamped black cardstock with white ink. Then circle punched out all the letters for "hang over" (15x - thank god I have a small wedding! lol). I then used a larger circle punch to punch out the sand colour cardstock to be a backing. Glue all of them together then applied on the aqua card stock. Used dolphin and gecko eyelets on the hangover kits instead of stamps to dress them up a bit due to the small space available.

    Thats the kits for now. I still have to get the rest of the OOT bag done, when I do I will upload the final OOT bag!
    Thank you for all your ideas ladies! I couldnt have done it without you....you gave me my inspiration to do these the way I did.

                      wow I had to look twice to see that you made the labels. It looks like you bought them in a store! Just a question, for the "Beach" tag you said you used white paper, did you print it out first and then glue it to the card stock?
