A while back, I debated on what sort of out-of-town bags we should use. Well, to bring that story arc to a close, I decided to order the Hawaiian print totes.
They were cheap, cute, and I’m under the belief that one can never have too many bags.
Just for fun, we blinged them out a bit with some more buttons. Beachy-themed, of course.
Kudos to you if you “get” the very obscure reference on the bottom right button!
I put three buttons to the corner of each bag. Does that fill the flair-quota for the day?
Inside the bag we’ll include our welcome cards, in which we thanked our guests for coming.
And inside the welcome card I threw in this little bit of folded card stock:
I recycled an image I doodled for the blog a while back for the front. Doesn’t it look like I just scribbled it on with a big, fat marker? Hehe. Mr. Sew didn’t understand why this little scrap made me so happy. I think I’ve just been in planning-mode far too long. I’m losing my mind.
Sadly, our bags come to an abrupt end for now, as we plan to fill them in Hawaii. On the list of things to include, however:
- A bottle of sunscreen
- A bamboo beach mat
- A box of Hawaiian shortbread cookies
(source) If only I could afford these most amazing cookies. Maybe if I buy in bulk?
- A package of ultra-strong-soy-sauce-infused rice crackers
- Various pamphlets to Oahu attractions
- Some water bottles
Now, water bottles. I’ve had the water-bottle label on the pet-project list since day one. And luckily, there was still had time for it! First, I created an 8.5×2″ design.
We had it laser printed at Kinko’s, and then we cut them out!
I’ll just tape them onto some Hawaiian water bottles once we’re there, like this:
Anything else I should add to our goodie bags? What’s in yours, if you’re assembling any?
