I purchased totes from cheaptotes.com for my OOT bags and iron on transfer paper. I was just wondering how everyone created their designs for their bags. Do you have a good website that you found your graphics on? Does anyone have a template to share? Did you buy a design from someone and then print and iron yourself? I'm struggling with creating my own design and I'm ready to get started on these bags! Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!

@@MeredithLynne Hi I'm shopping around for tote bags. What size did you buy? Also where did you find transfer paper in bulk? How many bags did you do ? Im so not the crafty type.

@JRodz  I found this in one of the threads that came up when I did a search. It might be of some help. Definitely do a search. I had a ton of stuff come up that I think would be helpful.

I did the same thing. I bought the cheaptotes bc they were literally the cheapest! Then I used coupons at Michaels to get transfers ( I only made around 25 bags, one per couple or one per single). I made my own template... A knockoff of the Hola Amigo bag ( so ended up spending like 1.50$ per bag instead of 5 or whatever) Everyone loved it

Hey! These are the totes I got for $0.89: http://www.cheaptotes.com//canvas-tote-bag-8.html

 

I am not sure how many I will need yet, but I bought 35 since they were so cheap and to have some extras for mistakes, etc. 

 

I bought the iron on paper on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Avery-Transfers-Printers-light-colored-08938/dp/B0006HV2ZE?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 

 

I bought two of these. They seemed to be the best deal to me. I did a little research of prices at walmart, staples, etc. You may be able to do better with coupons somewhere, but I lost interest in searching. lol

 

I ended up finding good clip art on http://www.clker.comI will post a picture of what I came up with later. I just used the avery website to design my logo with the clipart that I found on this site. 

 

Congrats and good luck!
