Handmade Christmas Bag #2

Howdy Crafters - I did a search at You Tube and found this video - click HERE on how to create a
bag or box with one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock - this is SUPER SUPER EASY. Mine is created with decorative Christmas paper - so it is more of a bag - when using cardstock - it would be like a box.
I took it one step further and turned down the top flaps - hole punched and added Jute for the handle~ Thanks for stopping by!  Gail~

12 x 12 sheet of decorative paper
Follow the tutorial video for scoring and folding - easy peasy lemon squeezy
Crop-a-dile hole punch
Jute Twine for handles
Sizzix Tag - White cardstock scrap
MFP Leaf Branch Stamp - Green Stazon Ink
Sweet & Sassy Coffee Cup stamp - Powderpuff Mocha Mama Chalking Ink
Spectrum Noir Markers - red and gold
Clear Dollar Stamps Sentiment - Rangers Black Archival Ink
Gold Twine
