Oh $h!t K!t Wedding Favors

I’m sharing the emergency kits that I made for all of the guests that attended my destination wedding in Jamaica. I came up with the idea from bestdestinationwedding.com and become fond of the name Oh $h!t K!t 🙂 I put these into the Destination Wedding Welcome Bags that I gave my guests, click the link to see how I made those.

The biggest thing about these kits is I started gathering all of the contents very early on, so I had time to shop around until I found a deal, I got several of the items on clearance or with coupons.

I ended up finding chapstick that came in 4 packs at Walmart for the most reasonable price. I used regular white address labels that I printed on myself (using the same ‘Harrington’ font in Word) and just stuck them onto the chapstick barrel. I did have to trim just a tiny bit so that you could still twist the chapstick up to use it. To make sure the label wouldn’t get ruined once the chapstick started being used I used clear shipping tape to cover it. No trimming needed for that and they turned out much cuter than I expected!

I wanted the tags for my kits to look real so I used Word to play around with text boxes. I used the font ‘Harrington’ and I adjusted the page setup to 4″ x 6″ and then flipped the text boxes around so that when I folded the tag over you would be able to read it on both sides. On the back it reads: ‘Included in this kit: Chapstick, Hand Sanitizer, Sunscreen, Band-aids, Wet Wipes, Gauze, Motrin’

I used my bone folder and guide to put straight creases into the tags and then just stapled them onto the ZipLoc bag.

I really love how they turned out (just wish my pictures were nicer) and I was excited to hear my guests loved them too. One suggestion I got was to add travel-sized aloe, which was actually something I intended on adding, but decided to nix because I didn’t have anymore room.

  2. Very cute! Well, the ideas for these are endless, shower caps, breath mints or hard candies, mini hairspray or deoderant, toothbrushes. Anything your guests really may have forgotten. I do a similar thing with baskets on my companion site jeanetteseasycreations.wordpress.com. I LOVE THE NAME OF YOUR KIT! So very cute!
