    Before I joined this forum I had never heard of an OOT Bag; its just not a term we use here in the UK.  Then I looked at everyones photos and ideas and said to myself; ' I wanna do that...'


    Well after starting my OOT Bags very enthusiastically in March / April time; I then did nothing with them until today.  If I ever see a piece of turquoise or gold paper or ink ever again it will be too soon.  I mean what else is there to do on New Years Day!!!!


    Everything was on a budget and purchased from the 99p store or Free from Vistaprint, I did one bag per couple and one each for the single people, I only had to do 9 in total.  I opted for the paper bags due to the budget and I knew if I got nice bags they would just be disregarded. 


    Please enjoy and thank you for all your inspiration fellow brides 2 be :-))







    Each bag will contain:

    • A magnet saying ; I travelled all the way to Mexico for Jo & Busters wedding & all I got was this lousy magnet! (Vistaprint)

            Are you giving these to your guests before you go or when you get there?
