I am SOOO excited I just finished my OOT bags. BIG shout out to all the wonderful ladies out there who I begged, borrowed and stole ideas from. We made 40 of them and are bringing the following over from the States:
1.) 40 reusable coral red grocery sacks that fold into a strawberry (Amazon.com for $18 for 10)
2.) 40 Welcome Books using color copies cut to fit into Photo Brag Books ($1.00 each at Dollar Tree, $10 for 40 wallet-sized photo reprints for the cover, $95 for color copies at 4 to a page, 24 pages total, 10 copies of each page- more detailed post on this later)
3.) 40 Soduko Puzzle Books ($1.00 each at Dollar Tree)
4.) 40 Hangover Kits (contents for each include 5 packs Exedrin, 2 packs Pepto Bismo, 1 pack gum, 2 packs Gatorade Mix, 2 ginger chews, total was about $150 from Amazon.com, Costco and Trader Joes)
5.) CD of Music from the Week ($30 for the CDs and CD Labels at Office Max, $8.00 for the CD cases at Dollar Tree)
6.) 40 bottles of Hand Sanitzer ($20 for 2-packs at Dollar Tree)
7.) Key Card Holders w/Lanyards (completely forgot what website, but super cheap, less than 50 cents each)
Total spent on OOT bags for 80 guests (40 bags, assuming 2 to a room) = 465...so about $11.60 a bag. Not bad, huh?
PM me if you have questions, these were so much fun to make! But, seriously, if I didn't have summer vacation being a public school employee, I have no idea how anyone does all this cute stuff. It takes WORK! Start early!!!

Good Luck to all other OOT-Bag-Making Brides!!!
