Required items:

A letter -in the first pocket that includes Name, your location, Name of swap and why this is your favorite color. It can be typed or written longhand, then folded to put into first pocket. The remaining pockets can be filled with paper, stamps, stickers, ATC, beads, brads or things in your favorite color.

So, this PL doesn't have to be decorated? Just has goodies in the pockets for our partner? After the goodies are pick-pocketed out, should the PL have anything left? I ask because there seems to be two camps of PL-makers: those who keep them in a binder and thus desire wonderfully-decorated PLs; and those who don't keep them and thus expect goodies in all the pockets and nothing/not much else. Thanks!

That really is a good question I feel the pockets should be decorated in your favorite color and have a few goodies scatter for the partner. I believe that is most cost effective for swappers and then there is something left. However I am getting many mixed messages from folks. So for this one, it will be sender's choice.
Just remember to make something you would love to have.

I want to keep mine in a binder so I hope it's decorated...I'm new to PLs but have done my 1st one and thoroughly enjoyed doing it. I did mine on both sides just because that looks better and I hope my partner appreciates the extra effort and goodies I put in it. Just sayin'....

I keep mine in a binder too, so only will join "decorated" PL swaps. Thanks for answering though, Lynn.

Also I'd be worried I'd get a pink PL and pink's the worst, haha. :)

If you "fill" front and back does that mean that you decorate both sides and put the "goodies" in between the pocket panels? What constitutes decorated? The outside of the plastic, or just a pretty insert? I am enjoying PLs but some of the terms are confusing.

I am very new to this. But here is what I do now after many trials. The front is decorated ...something that could be put in a binder and look nice. Then I cover the back of each pocket with some decorative paper and then I place the goodies. This way a person has a pretty front PL, a "clean looking" back and can also see the goodies given to them. But to be truthful, people do it so many different ways. I like the decorative ones that I may keep. This is just one way.
