My DIY Survival Kit Label for OOT Bag with Pics and List of Items with Price Breakdown

Recommended Posts

My OOT bags are almost complete, but I figured I'd go ahead and share the Survival Kit that will go in the OOT bag! 

 

This project was a lot of fun and thanks to the frugal brides OOT bag info thread... super cheap! That thread is here:

http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/80079/frugal-brides-found-a-new-website

 

I bought my items at the Dollar Store, Wal-Mart, and minimus.com.

 

Here is a list of what's in the Survival Kit:

1. DIY Personalized Chapstick - BulkApothecary.com - .14 cents/each (my DIY thread is here: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/84966/my-diy-chapstick-labels-for-oot-bag-with-pics-and-template)

 

2. Easy Mending Kit (thread, needle, safety pin) - Minimus.com- .27 cents/each

3. Shout Wipes - Minimus.com- .43 cents/each

4. Nail Polish Remover Pads - Minimus.com - .07 cents/each

5. Nail File - Dollar Store- bought a pack and it came to .03 cents/each

6. Cocoa Butter - Wal-Mart - .87 cents/each

7. Sunscreen - Wal-Mart - .97 cents/each

8. Wet Wipes - Dollar Store- .33 cents/each

9. Emergen-C - Minimus.com - .43 cents/each

10.Razors - Wal-Mart- .17 cents/each

 

The bag has 2 or 3 of certain items so the total for each bag is only $5.04 and it's for 2 people b/c each couple will share one bag and that is why there are 2 of certain items like the chapstick, razors, etc. I prob could have gotten certain things cheaper but I had already purchased certain things when I found out about minimus.com. That site is seriously awesome!

 

(The OOT bag will also have a few more fun items! This is just the Survival Kit that goes IN the OOT bag)

 

Once I had my items, I was so excited to put a bag together and make a label for the top of the bag. I used zip lock baggies for the bag.

 

I designed a label, and then just saved it as  a .jpg and used Word to format 3 labels/page. I then printed them on my printer at home, and trimmed them to the right size with a paper cutter. 

 

Here is my design:

Here is the bag all put together:

Happy Planning, ladies!!

Let me know if you have any questions :)

What program did you use to design your labels? And did you have them professionally printed by Vista print like your cards? They look awesome! You've done a great job!!

thank you very much! I designed them using a program online: pcikmonkey.com. Then I saved the "picture" that I designed and inserted it into a Word document and printed them at home on my printer. :) Hope this helps! If you have never used picmonkey.com... you have to try it out... it's awesome!!
