OOT Bags + Welcome Booklet Punta Cana DR (PICS)

Recommended Posts

First I want to thank all the ladies whose pictures, posts and templates inspired and helped me create my OOT bags. I couldn't have done it without you!

 

BAGS:

We used a natural cotton shopping bag that we stamped with some starfish rubber stamps we bought from Etsy. We varied the design so everyone's bag's were unique.

Ribbon and name tags were from PaperSource. Name tags were actually business cards (in Peacock color) that I hole punched. I hand wrote and stamped each card. Used the small starfish stamp.

WELCOME BOOKLETS:

I used a few templates you wonderful ladies had posted on here both for inspiration and as a starting point. It seemed so overwhelming at first!  I wish I had started the early because it was a total rush the week before I left to get it all finished. I wished I had started earlier to make sure I had enough time to test out printing (took me awhile to find a printer at work that liked printing on heavier shimmer stock)

 

PHOTO SHARING: One learning I wanted to share -- I decided to have give the guests the option to upload pictures for a Shutterfly account I created so everyone could see the pics. I didn't realize until after the wedding that you can't download hires pics from Shutterfly very easily. Your options are either order a DVD or move photos to a 'Share site' where you can download a 8x10 (but not full res). So, not saying that Shutterfly isn't the way to go but I might have set up a Shutterfly Share site that people could upload to in advance or explored other options.

 

SUPPLIES:

Cover Paper: Shimmer paper in Cover weight from PaperSource.

Back Paper: Linen Sea Blue textured paper 8 1/2x11 140g from PaperSource

Inside Paper: Found some white matte paper at Staples, weighted around 200 or so.

Ribbon: Ivory ribbon form PaperSource

Starfish stamps are from Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67258959/large-mosaic-starfish-olive-wood-stamp)

Fonts: Milk & Cereal (http://www.searchfreefonts.com/free/milk-cereal.htm), American Typewriter Light

Hole punch

Paper cutter

 

 

The spacing is off now but here's my template:

I used regular ziplock bags. The paper was the same Shimmer paper in Cover weight from PaperSource that I used for the booklets. I was able to print 2 per page using the a template from another BDW bride then used a paper cutter to cut them down.
