Why Pocket Letters? Pocket Letters are a way to send happy mail and share creativity all at the same time. It’s a great way to meet others who are inspired to fellowship and share.
From the Janette Lane Blog . .”I created Pocket Letters™ (or pocket mail) as a new way to send letters to your new or existing penpals. Basically, you fill all the pockets of a Pocket Letter™ insert or 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 these types of letters indefinitely. You fill each pocket 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 entire layout 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!”
Here is a link to a quick Pocket Letter Tutorial by the founder Janette Lane. As Janette says, your Pocket Letter doesn’t have to be EXACTLY like this.. This is just a GUIDE. Be creative and have tons of fun!
