Out of Town Bags

Jared and I were at a local Cleveland craft store and happened upon a bin of nice organic cotton canvas bags for under $2 a piece. We snagged all of them (about 16) and took them home. We spent an evening sketching out a design together. It was important to me that it would be a design that people would actually want to use after the wedding (as opposed to our monogram or wedding date) so we went a long with our bird theme and came up with a pair of birds hanging out on a Peony bush.

I took silk screening in college and Jared has dabbled with it a little as well so it was pretty easy for me to paint this thing into a screen and print them all in an afternoon. I love the way they came out and I think they will be so cute as beach bags for our guests. I hope there is one left for me after we fill them all for guests.

I love these! I would love to learn how to do screen printing. My college taught it and I kick myself for not taking it. I'd love it if you would check out my maps, they would be a great addition to your out of town bags!

Very cute Nikki! I've already put together a map for our bags but thanks for sharing! I'm sure there are plenty of brides around here who are in need of a cute map! :)
