I just discovered pocket letters. Created by janette Lane, they are a very addicting hobby.

The Basics

Take a baseball protector page,the clear kind with 9 pockets and fill them with different things, such as ATC's, tea bags, inspirational quotes,etc. The possibilities are endless.

Please include a letter to your partner, with the swap name included in one of your pockets.

Then fold them up, pop in a standard envelope and mail. The thicker they are--depending on what you put in the pockets- will determine the postage. I would strongly urge you to take to post office to be sure. A great way to share your creativity with someone new. When you receive one, put it in a binder.

This is senders choice, but please check profiles for inspiration.

Please have a well filled out profile so your partner can create something geared to your likes if they wish. I will check and drop if not.

4.8 rating and no recent 1's or 3's.

If this gets a good response I will do themed swaps too, such as colors,seasons,etc.

can the page protector be handmade?

freyja3120 02/28/2015 #

@myshoesdontmatch I don't know the requirements here, but usually it's recommended that people use the standard ones so that they are consistent when they are put in a pocketbook ( the binder they're collected in). Hope that helps!

Oh, and I'd love to see themed ones. Just thought I'd put my vote in :-)

I save ATCs in these page protectors...they fit perfectly! This sounds like a fun swap - never saw one before for pocket letters!

@dragonangel157 Just wanted to mention that usually, one of the pockets contains a letter to your partner ... hence the pocket letter name. Not sure if you missed that or doing something a bit different :)

Janette Lane seems to have started this. She has several YouTube videos about it. This is just one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C551yphwG_o

Just a warning, these are super addicting. I got a friend here into them and there's no stopping! Don't say I didn't warn you ;-)

These are not as new as you seem to think...

dragonangel517 03/ 9/2015 #

Yes, please put a letter if you want, or at least an "about me " card. Sorry I didn't realize there were so many comments! Been busy making letters,lol. And yes, this is Janette Lanes creation,she gets all the credit for this idea.

dragonangel517 03/ 9/2015 #

And please do use a standard pocket protector, @myshoesdontmatch

dragonangel517 03/ 9/2015 #

Edited the swap to include about the letter and credit Janette Lane.

I'm so excited about this one! I love making mini zines and ATC's. I've never seen this before, so glad to be introduced to it!

MiniQuilt 03/12/2015 #

A vegetable/fruits magnets would look most lovely on the fridge.

Please, please host more regional pocket swaps. I love these, but international postage prices make me :(.

This was such a fun swap - both to put together and then to receive. I will look forward to doing another one soon...

Just worked all morning on my PL and I must say it was loads of fun. It's a lot of work but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
