Make It Monday | Tag Topper Chocolate Pockets

Make It Monday with Stampin' Up!

Hello! Wow, where did last week go?! Oh, well, it’s Monday again – time for Make It Monday!

I spent the weekend with a group of awesome women; crafting, eating and having heaps of fun! I have rambled for hours about how much I LOVE Stampin’ Up! and this weekend was a prime example of why I love it. This weekend wasn’t a Stampin’ Up! organised event, but a team event, organised by one of my lovely Stampin’ friends. Someone I would NEVER have met without this company, and I spend the whole weekend crafting (how often to we get to do that!), it was great to reset, take time for me, and I am so ready for what the next few weeks will bring!

Pop of Paradise Tag Topper Team Swap using Stampin' Up! UK productsHow cute are these! One of the things that we do when we get together is share and swap projects – we call them swaps, and its a massive part of any Stampin’ Up! event. Now, when I go to Stampin’ Up! organised events I make maybe 50 swaps, but because this was a smaller team event I made a swap for each person – so this time I made 22 of these. Actually I made 24, but that meant that I could leave a couple to say Thank You to the housekeepers / receptionist etc at the Hotel we stayed at.

Aren’t they super cute! Each pocket contains a bar of children’s chocolate (the same brand as those eggs with the toy in the middle!) – because chocolate / sweeties are another BIG theme at these events. James laughs at me, he always knows when I’m prepping for a crafty weekend away (he never remembers, no matter how many times I tell him I’m going!) when he sees the bags and bags of sweets sat in the office!

These pockets use the Pop of Pink Speciality Designer Series Paper and coordinating Pop of Paradise Stamp set. I did also make some using the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper too, seeing as I managed to cut enough paper for 18 pockets and then ran out of paper – Math isn’t my strong point!


Designer Series Paper – 4 x 4 1/2″ (10 x 12 cm)

Score on the long side at 2 and 4″ (5 and 10 cm)

Tag Topper Punch Chocolate Pocket using Stampin' Up! UK products

The pockets are super simple to put together (as you can tell, a 5 minute Make It Monday video! even with my rambling is a miracle!). They are finished with the Tag Topper Punch at the top, and a staple at the bottom. Like I said I made 24 of these and it took me about an hour, from start to finish.
