How many of you, have hear of Pocket Letter's?
When I had first seen them I thought….oh these are ATC's
But when I watched some videos, I realized they are and they aren't.
They are the same size as an ATC and each one is hand made.
But (to me) they are more simply made and the idea is to send them in their pocket pages.
Here are the ones I made today.
The first thing you will need are these page protectors, which are hockey or baseball card holders.
I have been keeping my ATC's in these for a while now, so I already had them on hand.
I picked mine up from Dollarama…..which is a dollar store here in Canada.
Then I went through my scrap file and cut some papers to 2.5 x 3.5.
I love the idea of using up some of my paper scraps :)
The papers I had in my scrap file were pretty thin.
So I backed them up with some card stock, also from my scraps.
I didn't have enough of the same colour of card stock to back all of the 9 cards, so I had to use a lighter pink and then inked the edges in a darker pink ink so they would look similar.
I had this heart and "love" die cut on my desk, so I figured I would use it on one of my cards :)
One other thing that is fun about these pocket letters, is that you are to slip in some goodies into the pockets.
I am planning to add some washi tape samples, twine, tags I will cut out, die cuts, and some chocolate ;)
Many of the other ladies have added special tea, but I am not a big tea drinker, but chocolate…I would be all over that, lol.
Oh ya, another great thing about these pocket letters…once they are folded in the 3 sections, they should fit in a #10 envelope.
I tried to keep all of my embellishments thin, so I could just use a regular stamp on these.
I haven't signed up for any swaps and I don't have any pen pals, but I still wanted to try my hand at these, so I am going to mail them out to some of my friends :)
Here is a link to Janette Lane's video explaining how these pocket letters work "Pocket Letters"
I hope you all had a very Creative Thursday :)
