No airline requirement, just as Dazeydawl said, it's more or less to keep things organized in one place rather thna loosley in your OOT bag. Also, I htink the clear bag is great because your guests can get a look inside as to what is in them.
2....then of course, where do you get the clear bags and the toppers? Are the toppers cardstock paper, or something more like cardboard?
I bought my clear plastic bags from the Dollar Tree, They were 1 quart freezer bags. $1.00 for a box of 20. I made my own topper using a template from this website.
Here is mine:
I used white cardstock from Walmart - very inexpensive.
3....what kinds of kits is everyone including? I've seen the survival kits, snack kits, oh sh!t kits...any others I'm missing?
I only made Survival Kits - I did feel like going overkill since I had other items in the actual OOT bag. The items I included were Kleenex, antibacterial gels, personalized lip balms, nail polish remover pads, Advil, safety pins, gum, nail file, Snapple & Crystal Light individual drink mixes for water bottles, Tide handwash detergent packet, shout out wipes, pepto-bismol chews, bandaids.
If anyone has some templates they could pass along, I would greatly appreciate it...I haven't been able to accumulate the 150 posts since I almost a year ago..I read more than post I guess. Emails are appreciated! firstname.lastname@example.org
