Quick Coffee Break! VIA Pouches for friends...

Pin It Now! I put together a dozen or so of these cute pouches for Starbucks Iced Coffee packets, perfect for giving away in the hot summer months.

The left is Charmed, one of my favorite sets to layer. I used that because it's not retired. However, all my giveaways are the sample on the right, a retired hostess set called A Slice Of Life. There are plenty of substitutes you can use from the new catalog, such as Morning Cup #120489 or Take A Sip #120323. I'm away from home and just using what I grabbed :)

Here's a closer look...

How do you like those adorable mini clothespins? Too cute! Theyre plenty affordable too, $2.95 for 24. Item #112942 if you're interested! The DSP is new and beautiful, it's called Pocketful of Posies.  I love anything with brown!

I was inspired by a sample I saw on SplitCoastStampers, from addinkandstamp's blog, it was a Christmas theme.  If you'd like to make your own, here are the approximate measurements:

Cut cardstock 7" x 5-1/2", makes 2 per sheet of 8.5 x 11.
Fold in 1/2 lengthwise, adhere side and bottom.
Cut bottom DSP 3-1/2" x 6", punch bottom with a scallop punch
Cut top DSP layer at 2-7/8 x 6", layer and adhere to pouch.
Use another 1" x 6" of coordinating DSP to make a paper ribbon.  Attach with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Next, make your focal point.  Any stamps & any circles will do! 
Add your little embellishments, these are Tiny Tags.

Have a blessed & creative day! Erika.


  1. Hope you don't mind if I use this idea for a Workshop, SO COOL! I'm sure mine won't turn out quite as good, tho.

  2. I attempted to make your coffee packet but on the instructions it says to fold the packet lengthwise which I did but what forms the pocket to put the coffee in? Did you cut down the side and over to make the piece shorter in the front to hold the packet? Thank you for clarifying... this is adorable!
