Could we use a 9 pocket baseball card holder and put in decorative papers and fill the pockets with various embellishment items? For example, washi tape, fancy paper clips, paper flowers, etc.

@sleepingover2010 as long as it meets the swap requirements feel free to use whatever materials you prefer.

I will join if we can use 9 pocket pages.

Do you include APO addresses as US? It is Armed Forces and a U.S. address, but might require a customs form.

What do you mean when you say "A note".

Rimbar 04/14/2015 #

Does what we mail it in have to be a pocket as well?

@madonnar can APOs be mailed with a first class stamp?

purtie26 04/15/2015 #

APO address have always had to have a customs form and still require one only if it is a letter or "flat mail" then it can use one or two stamps with no customs form

dalbright 04/15/2015 #

Iy looks like Madonnar has a USA address so we shouldn't need to worry about this question in general I guess. Thanks Purtie26! Very helpful! ♥debbie

Is the a you tube video for these?

PurpleButterfly 04/18/2015 #

Oops! Done to late to join.

Letters with APO addresses are always same postage as we use to mail our letters..Custom forms are needed when lthe letter is to big / bulky and overweight...It then becomes a package and needs a customs form...
