O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Race

This weekend, Beasley went on a grand adventure to Texas Motor Speedway to watch the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 race! With windchills in the low 40s, she brought along her new handmade coat to stay warm while exploring the many speedway sights. First, was a photo on the Texas Motor Speedway sign, just outside of Gate 6. After spinning countless prize wheels and winning all kinds of free goodies from the sponsor booths that lined the outside of the speedway, Beasley posed for a photo in front of the merchandise trailer for the Penske drivers! Drivers were signing autographs, answering questions from fans but the best part of all was when Beasley got to sit on Joey Logano’s AAA race car!

Although much warmer weather was expected, Beasley still brought along her ItsMadeCreatively “Cool” Racing Fans! If you missed the blog post that announced these innovative paper fans, check it out here. These three cleverly-designed  paper fans let fellow race spectators know that not only are you cool (i.e. awesome) but when using these fans, you’re also much cooler (I.e. temperature ) than they are! Assembly instructions are included. All you’ll need is card stock paper, scissors and large self-adhesive tip craft sticks. We recommend laminating the fan for added durability before attaching to the craft stick. Get your “Cool” Racing Fans today for the next NASCAR race you attend!

Racing’s Coolest Fan

This week, Beasley is here to showcase the newest product in ItsMadeCreatively’s growing collection of easy-to-do crafts, “Cool” Race Fans! Here’s the inside scoop…

Picture this… You’re sitting in the stands under a blazing sun watching your favorite stock car driver zoom around the track. There isn’t a breath of wind and you’re pretty sure you’re slowly melting into a puddle of sweat. But wait, what’s this? The NASCAR fan next to you is barely sweating and doesn’t smell like a 3-day-old pair of socks! How can this be? What secret to staying cool do they know that you have yet to uncover? Then you see it. In their hand is a punny paper fan that claims they are cool – both in temperature and in awesomeness! Desperate for relief, you inquire as to where they came by such a desirable item and learn it’s the newest product from ItsMadeCreatively. They go on to say that printing and assembling the fan was a breeze – no pun intended. Just when you think you’re doomed to perennial perspiration beside this refreshed race fan, they pull a second fan out of their bag and give it to you! Suddenly, a cool breeze floats across your moist brow bringing relief from the sweltering heat like jumping into a swimming pool. Visiting ItsMadeCreatively’s website and getting these paper fans for yourself quickly jumps to the top of your To-Do list before next week’s race! And maybe bring a few extras – just in case you find yourself sitting next to a sweaty spectator that reminds you of your former self before owning some of ItsMadeCreatively’s “Cool” Race Fans!

Disclaimer: While our paper fans are indeed awesome, they are not guaranteed to make you stop sweating or smell better! Also, we cannot guarantee that the race fan next to you will have an extra ItsMadeCreatively paper fan to share with you. Be that person who shares with others!

So what’s included in our “Cool” Race Fans? Three cleverly-designed paper fans that let fellow spectators know that not only are you cool (i.e. awesome) but when using these fans, you’re also much cooler than they are. Assembly instructions are included! All you’ll need is card stock paper, scissors and large self-adhesive tip craft sticks. We recommend laminating the fan for added durability before attaching to the craft stick. Visit the product page now!

Get yours today and be as cool as Beasley!

Paper Wedding Cake Card Box

Introducing ItsMadeCreatively’s Paper Wedding Cake Card Box!

The perfect way to collect cards from your wedding guests is with this Wedding Cake Card Box! Made out of paper, the three tier round cake consists of paper mache boxes covered with embossed paper sides which look as if it has been iced, just like a real cake. Lace trim lines the edges of each tier with numerous delicate paper flowers spilling over the sides. The flowers can be created in any color to match the color scheme of your wedding! On top of the cake is a paper bride with lace dress and pearl necklace next to a groom with a sign that reads “Place Cards Here”. When cards are dropped into the opening, they fall down and collect in the bottom tier. To remove the cards, simply lift the cake up by the second tier and retrieve them. From bottom to top of the paper bride and groom, the cake stands 20″ tall and measures 12″ in diameter at the base and can easily hold 50 cards. For added durability, a plastic edge was 3D-printed and inserted into the opening to protect the cake top from the wear and tear of the cards passing through. From elegant to casual, this cake can be easily transformed into a perfect match for your wedding’s color scheme and theme!

Who would be your Disney sidekick?

Picture this… you’re sitting at the seat reserved for you at your friend’s party with seven complete strangers around the table. Each is too shy to strike up a conversation with the rest of the table, leading to awkward silence and polite smiles. You look down and notice a small card with a question on it resting next to the place card. Suddenly, the guy sitting to your left says “Zazu”. Seven stunned faces turn toward him, wondering what they just heard. “The card says ‘Who would be your Disney sidekick?’ and mine would be Zazu” he explains. Soon each person at the table is offering who would be their ultimate sidekick and asking others what question is on the card at their place setting. Laughter ensues at some of the responses to the questions which sparks stories and tales of adventure had in Disney Parks. Gone is the awkward silence, now replaced with stress-free chit-chat with those former strangers! ItsMadeCreatively’s Conversation Cards saved the day!

Download each set of 8 cards for FREE today! Instructions for 3 gameplay variations and ideas for non-gameplay uses are included. More variations of this icebreaker are on the way, so check back often!

Our Collection Center Journal

MadeCreativelyCollectionCenterJournal

If you are an Operation Christmas Child Collection Center Co-ordinator, you have to remember countless numbers, names, dates and stats. What were the destination countries for your center in 2013? When Aunt Sue drops off shoeboxes from her packing party and asks how many she gave last year – will you remember? Why can’t you remember the name of the contact person for your newest Relay Center? To help you remember all of those important details, we designed this handy Collection Center Journal. Easily find stats and notes using the provided 5 tab dividers and 52 journal pages that were designed to help you record the vast amount of information that Collection Week brings (more on that below). While NOT meant to replace official Collection Center logs/reports/forms, this journal is a great way to record memories and notes for your personal use!

MadeCreativelyCollectionCenterJournal2
MadeCreativelyCollectionCenterJournal4

The journal is easy to assemble too! Simply print as many pages as you need/want, cut them out and bind together.
For our example journal, we laminated the cover pages and all 5 tab dividers. Then we purchased 2 clear check-size poly envelopes at the office supply store and some 18 gauge silver craft wire. We cut off both ends of the poly envelopes, hole-punched the pages, tabs and envelopes and then sliced the bottom edge of one poly envelope into two pieces. After wrapping the craft wire around a wooden dowel rod to form a spiral, we threaded it through the holes to bind the pages and envelopes together. Now our journal is protected from rain and random beverage spills with a velcro-secured cover!

MadeCreativelyCollectionCenterJournal3

For the second poly envelope, we trimmed the ends to match the size of the journal pages and had placed it between the last page and the envelope cover. With a needle and red embroidery thread, we stitched both sides of the envelope to form an enclosed pouch. It’s perfect for holding business cards, Post-It notes, paperclips, small pens or pencils and more!

Using green embroidery thread, we stitched the leftover poly envelope pieces to the back cover to form two pouches to hold items that we might need quick access to!

Needless to say, we can’t wait for National Collection Week to begin! We hope you find this journal helpful and remember, all profits from its sales go to shipping shoeboxes! Click here to purchase it!

Here’s a list of the pages included in the Collection Center Journal:

  • 1 Front Cover and 1 Back Cover
  • 1 Collection Center Info tab
    • 1 Collection Center page
    • 1 Processing Center page
    • 2 Things to Remember pages
