Paula, of Party Like Paula, calls this collection her “Christmas Memories” collection- but it was the chevron print that jumped out at me when she showed me the photos!  I love the fresh spin with Christmas classics thrown in~like Grandma’s Kisses!  I was definitely not expecting the wreath that Paula made- it is one crafty confection!  Enjoy!

I love how Paula wrapped the chevron paper around inexpensive jars and candles to create a centerpiece~

And here is that wreath…at first glance, I thought it was fabric rosettes.  Not so, those are cupcakes!

I especially love the shirt that she designed to match the paper party goods!

Thank you for sharing your fun ideas, Paula!

You can find Paula’s Christmas Memories Collection in her NEW Shop

Party Like Paula also offers a tutorial on that wild wreath!  Find it here~
