Hi Bees…I just saw the blog regarding the Out of Town bags and I am really excited to put mine together but my question for you is…Where did you purchase your Out of Town bags and can you share a picture with me 🙂 I am really curious to see where everyone got them from. Thanks and look forward to seeing all the Out of Town bags.

I don’t have any pictures, but I got mine from Michael’s. They came in packs of 8 or 10, and they have different colors. Mine were pink 🙂

I got 10 by 10 by 5.5 white boxes from papermart and will be trying them with green ribbon from costco.

We purchased 9x9x6 white gable boxes from papermart.com. I created labels for the outside of the box based on something I saw on project wedding’s website and we’ll tie the top of the gable box with ribbon. Since the wedding isn’t until this summer though, I haven’t put anything together…but if I can buy non-perishable supplies ahead of time I do!

We bought ours off of papermart.com and they were really cheap – not fancy or anything. Then I put stickers on the outside from Vistaprint!

Here’s a pic I took of mine. I just used some spare ribbon on this one, so in “real life” it will hae a slightly better looking bow. I don’t have time to mess with designing a welcome label, so we are just using the same tags we used on our invites. After shippin the boxes were 68 cents each. The big roll of ribbon was $6.

I would have loved to do something really cute like a gable box. However, I am on a very tight budget and wont have the time to put them all together down there so I went the easy route and got Kraft Paper gift bags from Michael’s. I got a pack of 13 with a 40% off coupon and they came out to about 30 cents a bag. I want to be able to spend the money on the filler stuff instead of a bag/box that will get trashed. This is not mine but the general look we will prob go for.

Mine was very similar to the PP. Just a brown paper bag that was filled with goodies. We stapled a note to the front, tied the top with ribbon and used bright tissue paper.
Michaels has other colors too! Save your coupons to buy them!
