The Oval Handle Bag is the 4th project for my 12 Days of Christmas.

This bag is so quick and easy to make that I bet you can make just one!!!

I used the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper along with the Mixed Medley Hostess Stamp Set.  I Love that stamp set and will be sad when it retires on Jan. 2nd.  (You can earn the Mixed Medley set free with a $150 order.)

I stamped the image with Early Espresso ink and then cut it out with the 1-1/4 Scallop Circle Punch.  I stamped the image again and cut the center piece out with the 3/4 Circle Punch and added it with a Stampin Dimensional.

I used the Oval Punch for the Handle and added the Early Espresso Tulle.

Here’s a free video tutorial on how to make the Oval Handle Bag ….
