In a 9 clear pocket page make a completed pocket letter for your 1 partner.
THE FRONT OF THE POCKET LETTER WILL BE A Completed coloring page by you!!!!
Sender's Choice of theme ;-)
Cut it into 9 pieces to fit the front pockets of the pocket letter â˜º
Decorate the back of pockets with anything you desire just so it is not plain or white pages showing on the back when all the goodies and the letter are removed....
BE SURE TO WRITE THIS SWAP NAME & YOUR USER NAME ON ONE OF THE BACK PAGES (I like to put it on the bottom right corner like a painting signature ;-)
You may use printed scrapbooking paper or graphics or ATCs or Fabric or a collage or Painted/colored/decorated papers or whatever just so it is not plain when goodies are taken out.
Many people collect these in a 3 ring binder so you want it to look nice in a collection book â˜º on the front & on the back.
INCLUDE a little letter in 1 pocket so it will be a true pocket letter.
INCLUDE AT LEAST 8 GOODIES in all the rest of the pockets on the back side of the page....
Here are some examples that fit nicely into the pockets:
A small package or bundle of crayons or small colored pencils ;-)
ERASER CARVED TO BE A RUBBER STAMP â˜º
A FLAT RUBBER STAMP
TEA BAG (Sealed in it's wrapper)
WASHI TAPE SAMPLES
CARD OF BUTTONS
An EMBROIDERY FLOSS pkg
SAMPLER OF ribbons or twine/fibers/trims/lace/RicRak
EARRINGS (IF they like them)(I DO!)
SM pocket sized PAGE OF STICKERS
BAGGIE OF EMBELLISHMENTS
FOREVER STAMPS (Always appreciated by USA swappers! ;-)
These are just a few things I could think of... IF you have some different IDEAS for Goodies PLEASE share in the comments below! ;-)
My helpful hints that i hope may help you too....
I look at my partner's profile and take notes on likes/dislikes/favorite colors ;-)
For this swap I will start by completing a coloring page ...
then cutting it to fit into the front of the pocket letter...
I have a nice collection book with extra blank pages in the back and i work on the PL swaps I am in there... in the back of that book..
I slip a little note in the bottom right front pocket of what swap it is and what the theme is , partners likes /dislikes note and an address label to put on the envie â˜º
I will then put different coordinating papers in the back sides of the pockets.
Then I start building from there with things that go with the THEME I PICKED and things I think my partner will like...
