I need help...

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

I'm starting to get geared up for the big event coming up. I need to make swag bags for my guests. It's a destination event, so the  "out of town bags" are really for everyone. I am trying to be creative and budget conscious at the same time. It is my specialty and I love the challenge.

Only one of my guests reads my blog (my sister) so maybe I will run some ideas by you. I am open to all ideas. I need bulk pricing on canvas totes (nautical yet chic looking) and I am looking for canvas toiletry kits (sort of like the ones they hand out on international flights) but ones that are blank.

I pinned this from a website. I'd like it to look like this but more macho (it is for my son's party)

Anyone have any ideas where to get  a canvas pouch like this one for a good price?

I'm also trying to come up with cool things that my traveling friends and family would actually want to use during the trip. I'm going for chic (not tacky) and I'm good at the personalizing/branding

Please let me know any ideas that you have. Maybe if I get enough help from the blogging world, I can hold a contest and give one of the bags away to one of my readers.

Many many many years ago I use to buy plain canvas bags, aprons and totes at Tall Mouse Craft Store. The best store ever... You could check out Joanns, Michaels or Arron Brothers for the tote and small canvas "art or pencil" bag.
Hope this helps.

I would toss in postcard kit, or make them up your self. Put a printed photo from the party and you have something to mail. Although that many seem very alien to the text messaging people of today. A stamps what is a stamp ?

cheers, parsnip

Take a look at these and see if they are worth looking at!

I think this is the site that our school ordered from for some giveaways.

Good luck finding things~ xo Diana

If you have a Hobby Lobby I know they have sacks that can be personalized. As far as stuff to go in it...snacks...I think those candy bars where people make the wrapper personal are so cute....and you can do the same on water bottles. Looks like fun!
