Pocket Letters

Recently I was introduced to Pocket Letter Pals by a friend of mine.  Basically it’s a fun way to send someone a letter.  You get one of those plastic sheets that hold trading cards, and each little pocket is decorated, and there’s a little treat inside. There is a great group on Facebook that helps you find trading partners and/or get inspiration for your own creations.

The first one I attempted was at a monthly crafty night I’m part of.  I chose to do a nature theme and use a much neglected paper pad I had in my stash.

This letter is on it’s way to a gal in North Carolina.  It included lots of fun treats:  A wooden moose tag, wooden embellies, a “Five things about me” note, 3 little stamped images of birds for her to colour and use on her own creations, washi tape, metal charms. ribbon. my favourite Tazo Tea, and some cute post-it notes.

The second letter I did was a tea theme:

This one is on it’s way to New Jersey.  I included: “Five things about me”, washi tape, a Tazo Zen tea with a cute gold bobbypin, gold tea charms, a Twinnings Ginger Lemon tea, butterfly post-its, 2 pockets contain 6 monthly calendars each with birthstones, and the last one contains tea images for her to colour in and use on projects.

I am eagerly awaiting replies in the mail, and I’ll make sure to post them when they arrive.

Have you made a pocket letter yet?  I’d love to see your projects!  Please post links to your creations in the comments section!
