My DIY Chapstick Labels for OOT Bag *With Pics and Template!*

Recommended Posts

HI ladies!

 

Even though I have already done a lot of DIY things for my wedding in June 2013, this is the first thing I have started a thread on so bare with me....

 

I mentioned in the thread for my resort (Azul Sensatori) that I made these and there was a lot of interest.. so here goes:

 

I bought the chapstick from a website called Bulk Apothecary for .14 cents/chapstick with NO MINIMUM! Whooo! I ordered 50. Talk about cheap! These are the ones I bought: http://www.bulkapothecary.com/containers/lip-balm-tubes-jars-and-tins/white-stick-standard-15-oz-lip-balm-tube/

 

The picture shows a blue chapstick but it is clear (and tastes like regular chapstick). I am very happy with the quality. 

 

They also have flavors for .19 cents/chapstick. These: http://www.bulkapothecary.com/lip-balm/white-stick-lip-balm-comes-in-6-great-flavors-starting-at-19-unit/

 

The website also offers the labels you need in order to make your chapsticks personalized. The sheets are only $1 per sheet and there are 15 labels/sheet.

 

Once my items came in the mail I got to work designing my label. I dabble in graphic design and find it very fun! 

 

When I was ready to print my labels I was able to find a template for them online here: (You can also ask Bulk Apothecary and they will email you a template)

http://www.onlinelabels.com/Templates/OL421-template-pdf.htm 

 

At first I messed up because I thought the orientation of the label was top to bottom, but its left to right (sideways) so I had to tweek my design and upload the design into the template sideways.

 

Once I got that straightened out I was good to go and all I had to do was put the stickers on my chapstick tubes. I have to say I am so pleased with how they came out and I think they will really be a hit!

 

One side says MEXICO Wedding Week June 2013 Azul Sensatori Riviera Maya, MX

and the other says Besos! Meg & Dan

 

Sorry for the kind of crappy picture quality. I was trying to get the stick from all angles and I tried some with flash and some without.

Happy Planning everyone! Let me know if you have any questions :)

I love your design!

 

Quick Question....

 

I think the first link you posted (http://www.bulkapothecary.com/containers/lip-balm-tubes-jars-and-tins/white-stick-standard-15-oz-lip-balm-tube/) is just for the empty tubes of chapstick. If I'm not mistaken, the actually chapsticks are at this link http://www.bulkapothecary.com/lip-balm/white-stick-lip-balm-comes-in-6-great-flavors-starting-at-19-unit/ and are .28 cents per chapstick (still an amazing deal!)

 

I just wanted to clarify b/c I almost made the mistake of ordering the empty ones!

 

Someone please correct me if I'm looking at this wrong!

Interesting you read the product description that way. I understood it as the first link being cheaper due to the fact that you couldn't choose from the 6 flavors. Also, they do have this product which says right across the picture "empty tubes" http://www.bulkapothecary.com/lip-balm/empty-lip-balm-tubes-available-in-black-white-or-clear-stick-starting-at-06-unit/ Because of this I ordered the ones that were .14 cents each that I linked to. BUT they did come empty. I was convinced that the wording was poor and since the other tubes said "empty" that I hadn't ordered the wrong thing. I emailed them and politely explained my confusion. They immediately sent me tubes that were not empty for free- no questions asked. They never really clarified if those ones for .14 cents are. MEANT to be empty or not. :/

I agree. The description is VERY poorly written. The only reason I realized it is because it says "Empty" on my internet tab when I clicked on the link. Also in the description it says "tubes hold .15 oz". And the other ones that are .28 cents say "pre-filled." Very poorly written and I'm sure people have made this mistake before so I'm glad we were able to clarify this! Very nice of them to send you the correct ones at no additional charge.  They should really fix their description and write EMPTY across the picture on that link!

    • we are a Karisma wedding specialist...Do you have any questions you need answered?   you can email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
