Starbucks Mini Pocket Books

What’s lively and balanced in the morning?  That would be me, after I have my cup of coffee.  I love Starbucks coffee but I prefer making it at home, not too strong not too weak but just right.  I have been collecting the coffee bags, because I do not have the heart to throw them out, this is how my house get too cluttered.  Today, I made little pocket books with them.  When I was a kid, I remember folding paper and making them into little wallets.


Have you tried sewing paper?  Instead of gluing paper together just sew them up, it does not only hold them together but it is decorative as well.

It gave me a reason to take out the old sewing machine again.  Of course it wouldn’t be complete without the paper beads holding it together.


It holds, a photo, a credit card and money.  What a neat idea when you want to give someone a gift card, or a Starbucks gift card.


I made a tri-fold and a bifold and little pockets on the side.

I love it!  Another day of turning the ordinary to extraordinary.  Have you done any recycling lately?



  1. This is so neat I would never think you could make something like that out of a coffee bag how cute and creative.

  2. What a cute way to package a gift card!
