        i bought everything except for the advil pouches and listerine strips at Walmart in the travel section. The advil I got from work as we get them for our patients and the listerine strips I got from Dollarama. Everything ranged in price from $1-$2 each. The sunscreen and body butter were $2.00 everything else was $1.00.
        The kit items worked out to be $6.00 per couple but with the cardstock supplies, etc. for the kit, Im guessing about $9.00.
        I found that I had to keep going back to walmart to get what I wanted bc the baskets for travel size stuff empties quickly. So it may take you a few trips to get everything you want.

        Good Luck!

              I used white glossy paper from Michaels. I cut out each label based on the size of the bag. Then took my "beach" letter stamps and stamped them in the clear "versamark" ink. (this makes it kinda hard to see on the paper) Then I took a brayer (it looks like a little roller) and ran the roller over my coca ink pad. Then rolled over the glossy paper with the cocao inked brayer. In turn it allows the clear "versamark" ink to go kinda white and everything else goes the cocoa colour. Its a bit of work, but the end result is great! Once it had dried, (the next day preferably) I actually used double sided crafting tape and secured it to the aqua card stock.

              I hope this helps, if you need any more info or clarification, let me know!
              Thanks for looking!

                I know the feeling! I couldnt find the immodium or pepto or anything like that so I gave up. I figured my guests wouldn't no any better of what they're missing so I went with just the advil.
                As for the advil, I actually got it from work. We get little packages from a distributer that only sells to Dental and Medical Clinics for our patients so my boss let me take them as we had an overflow at the time.
                Sorry!
