Today I want to share with you one of my latest products and one of my new addictions: making Pocket Letters! Janette Lane created Pocket Letters™ as a new way to send letters to your new or existing penpals. Basically, you fill all the pockets of a 9 Pocket Trading Card Protector and send the whole page to someone who wants to swap with you. This can be a one-time exchange or you can keep exchanging Pocket Letters indefinitely. You fill the pockets with anything you like (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, etc.) A short note or letter is included and tucked into one of the pockets. Then the Pocket Letter is folded up and sent in a standard 10 size envelope. It's the perfect way to send and collect letters from other Pocket Letter Pals (ie people who are sending mail in this format) around the world and a convenient way to store them. They fit perfectly in a binder!
I have created this Pocket Letter with the Noor! Design Seashore collection.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?First find a Pocket Letter Pal on a Pocket Letter Pals network. Once you find someone to swap with, then work out the details about who will write first, deadlines, general info, preferences, etc. After you've arranged your swaps, then purchase your supplies and start filling your pockets with goodness!
This snail mail revolution Janette has kicked off is truly exciting and I'm looking forward to seeing everything you create. Please share your creations with with us in our Noor! Design Pocket Letter Facebook group:
iId LOVE to see what you come up with. Ultimately, just think of Pocket Letters as a collection of scrapbooked letters made with love and being sent and exchanged around the world.
