    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.

    Stamps: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/64710627 ,  http://www.etsy.com/transaction/64710628 , http://www.etsy.com/transaction/64710629

    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/...live-wood-stamp)

      Fonts: Milk & Cereal (http://www.searchfre...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.
