So I wanted to do something different for our Pre-Travel Packets so I had another bridge suggest that I take the luggage box idea that some brides were using for their invitation or save the date.  So I went to work and started making the idea my own.


I used the directions from @MrsWeiss1211 post http://www.bestdesti...ons-and-prices/


Let me tell you, these boxes take time, and what I added to them didn't make them cheap! :)

So I knew from the beginning that the size @MrsWeiss1211 used wasn't going to work for my project, so I searched high and low for the best box for my project.  This is what I ended up with - http://www.staples.c...:ORDCONFRM::SKU Yes, they are white, I folded them backwards so the brown would be showing.


As far as the rest of the supplies, I used what was in the original post.


So inside I added:


Luggage Tags

Trial Size Bath & Body Works Endless Weekend - Body Wash & Body Cream http://www.bathandbo...586965.12587138

Trial Size Sunscreen

Aruba Tourism Information - I contacted the Aruba Tourism Bureau in the USA and they shipped out some info with a map of Aruba

Pre Travel Info Package (templates are below)

Since I had a few single guys coming I didn't think they would like the Endless Weekend from B&BW so I got them the Ocean for Men http://www.bathandbo...37866&cm_vc=200

These were also the talk of the town!  I had several guests post them on Facebook when they received them on their doorstep.  


I hand delivered as many as possible and the rest I sent via USPS.  


I have also attached the template from my Pre Travel Info Sheet

Hope you enjoy!

      @trbutler these are totally amazing! Did you do these instead of a OOT bag?
