More Minute To Win It Party Pictures!

I wanted to post a few more pictures that I received from moms that did a GREAT job making Paper Perfection's party printables for their children's birthday parties.  Here is a picture that I received from a party stylist.

I love how Levi's mom used the cupcake topper image by placing it below the cake pops for his party. The cake pops look so yummy...I wish I could pop one into my mouth right now! Levi's mom did a great job making all of the printables for his party and she used my tip for laminating the water bottles so that she could put them in a tub of ice to keep them cool.

I had to show off Chance & Brice's bag topper to show that you can throw a Minute to Win It party for more than one person. Chance and Brice are brothers who happen to have birthdays that are pretty close in dates, so they share a party each year. Their mom sent me this great picture of the bag topper that she used to make party favors for their guests.

Olly's Paintball Party - Camouflage Party Printables

I couldn't resist showing off the items that Julie made for her son's Paintball Birthday Party using Paper Perfection's Army Party Printable Collection. The boys all wore camouflage army gear for the paintball party so Paper Perfection's Army Party Printables were a great fit for the event! Julie did an AMAZING job assembling all of the items. She owns her own bakery and the confections that she whipped up to go with the printables are an absolute delight for the eyes! I wish I lived closer to her so that she could whip up sweet treats for my parties!!! Here is a link to her bakery on facebook:

Carnival - Circus Birthday Party Printables

Throwing a Carnival or Circus party in your backyard, a gymnasium or at home can be a lot of fun! You can set up stations with lots of different carnival games, pass out tickets that your guests can turn in for prizes at the end of the party and have lots of yummy carnival food like popcorn and cotton candy. Here are a few party printables that I designed for a carnival party, but the wording can easily be changed out for a circus party.

Rachael, one of my best clients, inspired me to finish making my carnival party printable collection so that she could help out her sister who was planning a carnival birthday party for her child. Rachael is always up for new and fun ideas for party things so I sent her a few pictures of "popcorn" cupcakes that she could make to go with the carnival theme. She was so excited about making them...I think she made the cupcakes the same night that I sent her the idea. Here are a few pictures she sent me of the amazing "popcorn" cupcakes she made using mini marshmallows and Paper Perfection's cupcake wrapper. She also included some pictures of water bottles with the "Carnival Restorative Elixir" water bottle wrapper that comes with Paper Perfection's carnival party printable collection.

If you are interested in this party collection or one of the invitations contact Paper Perfection at for pricing and details.

Here are a few "Carnival Game Ideas" in case you need a little inspiration for your carnival party:

Fish Out of Water:
Kids fish with a homemade pole: Tie a magnet to one end of a piece of string, and a yardstick to the other. The magnet catches construction paper fish fitted with metal paper clips. The challenge? Kids are blindfolded. They get three turns to win: three tickets for a shark, two for a red fish, one for a boot. For a splash of color, add blue pieces of paper "water."

Spray-Away Game:
Kids get one ticket for each ping-pong ball they knock off a golf tee with spray from a water gun. The target table: a white box decorated with blue construction paper waves and topped with red contact paper. We covered a strip of foam board with the same paper, inserted the golf tees into it, and secured it to the box with double-sided tape.

Clothespin Drop Game:
Kids need good aim, a steady arm, and nerves of steel to succeed at this game: dropping a clothespin into the mouth of a glass bottle. The prize: one ticket. At this or any of the activities, contestants can get back in line for another turn.

Ball-Toss Bonanza:
Tossing ping-pong balls into tumblers takes skill. Set up drinking glasses in a triangle formation on a low table. Inside each glass, place a cutout (easily made with a craft punch) in one of four colors: blue (worth four tickets), yellow (three), red (two), and white (one). A backboard (cardboard covered in paper) makes scoring easier; a ball can bounce off it into a glass.

• Photo Booth – either have a plywood painted with something cute and holes for their face or just a neat setting
• Bobbing for Apples
• Bean Bag Toss
• Hoopla – throw a ring around a bottle
• Horseshoes
• Miniature Golf
• Dart throw at cork board with balloons
• Treasure Dig
• Ping Pong blow with Teams – Have kids blow ping pong balls using a straw across a table
• Pop Balloons – have kids sit on balloons to pop them…whoever pops the most wins. This could be a team race with chairs.
• Donut Race – tie hang donuts from a clothesline and have a contest to see who can eat one without using their hands the fastest
• Water Sponge Toss – have them throw a sponge at a plywood cutout with someone peaking through
• Muffin pan toss – toss pennies into muffin pan. Put numbers at the bottom of each tin and put felt in each tin to keep pennies from bouncing out.
• Knock it off – Use squirt guns to knock ping pong balls off the top of empty cola bottles. Put sand in bottles to keep them from blowing over.
• Penny Splash – put 3 different sizes of glasses in an aquarium filled with water and have them try to drop pennies into the cups.
• Tower of pennies – have 200 pennies and see which child can build the tallest tower of pennies. Keep a running total and the winner gets the pennies.
• Move the marbles…using chopsticks to move marbles from one bowl to another
• Fishing
• Face Painting & Tattoos
• Flying Disk Toss – cover a box in wrapping paper and cut out holes. Have the children using the flying disk gun to get the disks into the holes
• Pick a Duck from a baby pool
• Bowling
• Tin Can Toss
• Basketball Shooting
• Rent a big bounce castle or other style of inflatable bounce house

Prize Table:
They can either get prizes at each game or they can collect tickets throughout the day. When the day is over, it's time for kids to empty their pockets of all those tickets. Each one is good for an item from one of the jars: a kazoo, yo-yo, ball, lollipop, gumball, or sunglasses. You can find prizes like these in party-supply stores or in the party section of supermarkets.

Melanie's Wedding Monograms

Melanie is another one of my Disney brides that I have so much fun working with! The signature colors for her wedding are silver and plum. Below are two of the monograms that I designed for her wedding. The first monogram will be used before the wedding on Melanie's personal stationary and the second monogram will be used on items for her wedding event including her invitation. I even made the second image 30 x 30 inches so that it can be used on her isle runner.

It is fun to hide images in a monogram that are special to the wedding couple. See if you can find the hidden images in Melanie's monograms.

Sarah's Welcome Bag (sarah took the image and printed it on 8.5 x 11 sticker paper then trimmed it down and placed the sticker on the gift bag):

Wedding Cake Topper with Paper Perfections Monogram

I couldn't resist showing off this wonderful wedding cake topper that Amy, one of Paper Perfection's clients, made using a monogram that I designed for her.

Here is how Amy said that she made the topper, "I've made up a new cake topper that I am in LOVE with! I sent the monogram that Dolly made for us to an Etsy seller who cut it out in acrylic for us. Then I added the Swarovski crystals to it in our colors. The Etsy seller is called AffordableCakeTopper. I used their custom option and they cut the topper from silver mirrored acrylic. Their Etsy shop says on vacation, but it looks like you can also order from their website: I bought mine plain and added the crystals myself, but I believe they also offer toppers completely covered in crystals if you want."

If you would like a monogram designed that you can use throughout printables and other wonderful items like a cake topper for your wedding or vow renewal, click here to see stock monograms that you can choose from or a custom design can be made as well. You can also contact Paper Perfection at

Here is another picture with a different style of monogram that I made for Amy and she used it for her reception napkins.

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner Invitation and Matching Printable Collection

I love creating collections for a special event! I have a potential client that is interested in a whimsical wedding rehearsal dinner invitation and I couldn't resist creating an entire collection to go with it! The bride is using apple green for one of her signature colors, and the family wanted an invitation with a picture of a bride and groom. If you are going to have a special dinner whether it's for a wedding rehearsal or any special occasion consider incorporating the invitation design elements throughout your event in things like a menu, place cards and favors.

Paper Perfection can design a collection for your next event using your signature colors, a unique background design and whatever style of font fits your whimsy. If you are looking for a special collection or just an invitation, contact Paper Perfection at

Treanne's Bridal Shower Invitations and Favors

I enjoyed working on several items for Treanne's upcoming bridal shower. The signature colors for her wedding are persimmon and apple green. I sent several invitation options using these colors to the shower hostesses for the invite and this is the one they selected. I also made matching gift tags, a favor box and food labels for the bridal shower to help tie her signature colors and invitation into the event. The hostesses are excited about having a "coffee bar" at the event and will be giving out chocolate covered coffee beans as a party favor.

These are the rest of the invitations that I designed as options for Treanne's bridal shower. I thought I would post them for everyone to see in case any of my blog followers is looking for unique invitation designs. You can click on the image to get a larger view then click the magnifying glass on the invite you would like to see.

Kerry's Wedding Candy Buffet Labels & Signs

I had so much fun making Kirk and Kerry's Candy Buffet Signs and Labels for their upcoming wedding. Kerry's personality really shows through in her wedding colors of hot pink and lemon yellow, and thoughtful favors from the candy buffet to the flip flops she is going to leave in the restroom for her female guests. I know her wedding is going to be so much fun!

Take a look at the designs I made for her candy buffet from the "Sweet Shop" sign to poem that directs her guests what to do and labels for her candy jars. You can click on the image and then click on an area of the picture with the magnifying glass to get a larger view.

Kerry came up with a great idea for leaving "flip flops" in the women's restroom for her female guests with aching feet from wearing heels. I have worked on signs for things left in restrooms for guests like aspirin, shout wipes, etc. but this is a first for flip flops and I love it!

If you are planning on setting up a candy buffet or fun treats for your guests in the restroom at your next event and need personalized signs and labels, contact Paper Perfection at
