I've not made any pocket letters for a long time. I thought it would be fun to do a Mini Pocket Letter version.

Know what a Mini Pocket Letter is?

Instead of a normal pocket letter that is 9 sleeves with a mini pocket letter you only use three of the sleeves or a single row.

(see the picture above)

I am going to try and make the requirements easy so that everyone gets a nice PL in return. If we all make them the same way then we should all get one in return that is nice :)


Any theme, color or texture is fine. Senders choice.

The middle pocket should be a shaker pocket.

The first pocket should contain your letter to your partner.

The third pocket should include the goodies you are sending to your partner.

This should be easy to mail because it will fit in a standard envelope. Depending on what you include you may need to add an additional stamp to the envelope. Make sure that you have enough postage on your envelope so that your partner doesn't get hit with "not enough postage" when they get the envie from you.


We all have different skill levels. As long as you get a three sleeve pocket letter with some kind of decorated inserts and the three requirements, then please rate your partner a "5". ♥s are up to you.

what is a "shaker pocket"?

KathleenHope 07/22/2017 #

A shaker pocket is filled with glitter or sequins, confetti, or small beads and sealed with tape or sewn so the stuff doesn't fall out when shaken.

What a great idea for those of us new to pocket letters. Thank you for organizing this swap KathleenHope!

Thank you @KathleenHope for answering this question. I answered her in PM but didn't think of putting it here too for others 😁

Where do you buy the actual pocket sleeve to make this?

drgngirl 08/18/2017 #

@lchase if you have the 9 pocket baseball card holders all you have to do is cut it into 3 strips of 3 pockets each. You can buy the pockets are Walmart, craft stores, etc. Anywhere that sells some sort of trading card should have them, too.

Anyone been assigned their partner yet?

lockerelf 08/21/2017 #

No, @MawBella I've been waiting because I wanted to send out a pocket letter that matched their tastes, and now I'm worrying that I won't have enough time to make a really good one.

MawBella 08/21/2017 #

Same here. I may have to just make a random one 😔 @lockerelf

I hope all is well with her.

I've been waiting on a swap from another person since June, but her activity on swap-bot also ceased in June. It seems people just fall of the map sometimes.

lockerelf 08/21/2017 #

@MawBella I think I'm going to leave the swap. I just won't have enough time to make something that great without a weekend. :/

Sorry everyone, I've been on bed rest the last week because I hurt my back really bad and can't move hardly and when I do try to walk I look like the hunchback of Notre Dame. I've moved the send by date to Aug 31 to give everyone time to create snd msil.

Butterfly1974 08/22/2017 #

@aligurl75 so sorry to hear about your back pain. Thank you for moving the date for us. I hope you make a full and speedy recovery!
