    I finally finished my bags & books. Was hoping to not wait until the last minute but with moving into a new house & wedding planning things didnt go my way! lol!

    I borrowed ideas from everyone on this site so I will also post the templates I used. If anyone has any questions or needs help with anything else just let me know.

    I bought white drawstring bags from Amazon. $2 something a piece. Most items were from Targets travel section.

    Inside I put in a zip lock bag:

     

    Travel Advil bottle w/10 pills a pack pepto band aid pack  mini lint roller  sunscreen  aloe  gum chap stick Custom Koozies bottle opener keychains crystal light individaul packs  Welcome Books w/ itinerary, map of resort & thank you letter   (excuse FIs feet, he was messy with tv equipment!) stuff.JPG   Name Tag for Bags nametags.JPG   Templates - 

    Name tags:

     

     

     

     

     

    Oh sh*tlabel:

     

     

     

     

    Welcome Book:

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I didnt have time to get better bags & my label was too big to put over the top so I shoved it in the bag. Don't think anyone will care seeing as they will just rip off the oh shit label anyways...plus at this point I am over with the wedding details and just wanna get there!!

    On to the welcome books. I believe I used Mandys template (thank you!)

    The cover & last page are on a thicker cardstock and all the inside pages are on regular paper. I just punched 2 holes & tied ribbon.

        Great job on the bags!!  I love the white bags. I was thinking of doing something similar to that.  It's great to see them finished.  They look so nice!

            I like how you included a map of the resort.  How were you able to get one?  Your travel agent or did you contact the resort?  Great Bag!!!!  Your guests will love them!


            Blissfully married since April 2, 2013.
