    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.bestdesti...d-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.bestdesti...cs-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:

    Back:

     

     

    Happy Planning, ladies!!

    Let me know if you have any questions :)

    -Megan

    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!!
