Free "Amazing Race" Birthday Party Invitation

Paper Perfection's "Minute to Win It" Party Collection has been such a success, I thought I would post printables that I made for my niece's "AMAZING RACE" birthday party. Since a trademarked image from Amazing Race was used on the invitation, Paper Perfection can not profit from its sale, so I'm giving it away for free. All you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of the post with your email to receive the free invite!

If you have never watched the show...take an evening to watch it to get ideas for your party. You can even find episode information online. If you get a chance, send me pictures that I can post on my blog with the printables and your party!

The Amazing Race printables can be used for lots of things in addition to parties. I have had a client use them to get engaged as he sent his girlfriend all over New York City. I have also had lots of families use them on trips to Walt Disney World. (Most of the families used them during their day at Epcot.) Several churches have used them with their youth programs, and I have even had a teacher use them to teach her kids about social studies and geography.

The badges look great laminated and hung on a lanyard
and the car tags should also be laminated and hung from
the review mirror of each car/taxi in the race.

If you want to purchase the Amazing Race Party Collection (pdf printable set) that matches the invitation, it is available for $25.00. Here is what you get:

• 1 set of blank clue cards
• 1 set of envelope labels
• 1 set of badges with five different team colors
• 1 set of car tags with five different team colors (to be placed on review mirror)
• candy bar wrapper
• personalized water bottle wrapper
• personalized gift tag
• route marker flags (two styles)
• Amazing Race Rules Example Sheet
• Amazing Race Symbols and Explanation Sheet
• a few game ideas for things you can do on your race

Contact Paper Perfection at for the Amazing Race Party Collection or to purchase individual items.  If you would like this free invitation, please leave a comment below with your email address.

Here is a link to a blog post from one AMAZING mom and dad that used my printables to throw an Amazing Race birthday party for their daughter.  Audrey's mom posted lots of pictures and including the clue cards they made for each stage of her race. 

I couldn't resist posting this picture from a "TUK TUK Amazing Race" that was held in India by the Canadian Embassy and they used my printables...SO EXCITING!

Lisa's Disney Dream Cruise Wedding Printables

I had so much fun working with Lisa on a few printables for her Disney Cruise Line Dreams Wedding that I couldn't wait to post them! She knew that she wanted her wedding colors of tangerine and green and a round logo with a ship in it to represent the cruise. From there she decided that she wanted to use her wedding logo on a candy bar wrapper and box for playing cards so that her guests would have something fun to do in their cabin, on the deck or hanging out at the beach on Castaway Cay! Here is the wedding logo and printable candy bar wrapper and playing card box that I designed for her wedding:

Here is what Lisa emailed me when she saw her wedding logo, "The logo you made is so perfect. (I almost cried when I saw it) I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!" It is a wonderful feeling knowing that you can make a bride something special for her wedding!

We are also working on another fun favor in honor of her fiance! I will post a picture of it once we finish. If you would like a logo or mongram for your wedding and a few fun matching favors, contact Paper Perfection at for pricing.
