This is the fourth in what will hopefully be a regular series of themed mini pocket letter swaps! I'm aiming to have one swap per month in this series, so keep an eye out. :)

You will have one partner. Create one mini pocket letter in the appropriate theme.

This month's theme - Black and white +1 color. Each of the three cards in your pocket letter must be black and white, plus one color of your choosing. NO other colors can be used, just black and white plus the one color of your choice - use the same color for all three cards. (Yes, you can use different tones of the same one color; light blue, medium blue and dark blue, for example.) Beyond that, create whatever your muse desires! Please don't just stick an image on a blank card and call it good - put love into your work and send your partner something you're proud of.

A mini pocket letter is a horizontal strip of three pockets, cut down from a nine-pocket plastic card protector binder sheet. There are oodles of tutorials on YouTube and such - inspiration is always a good thing!

Each pocket must have a decorated card in the appropriate theme.

The back of the pockets should be filled as well. One pocket should contain a note to your partner, and the remaining two pockets should be filled with goodies for your partner. There are tons of things you could include: stickers, flat embellishments, stamped images, washi tape samples on a playing card, individually sealed tea bags, punchies, die cuts, and so on. The additional goodies do NOT have to be on-theme.

(Alternatively, you can make one pocket a shaker pocket if so desired - that just means you'll have to squash your letter into one of the two pockets with the goodies.)

You can decorate the outer plastic of the pocket letter (with stickers, washi tape, tying pretty fibers to the holes on the left side, etc) but it is not necessary.

This should be mailed flat in a business-size envelope.

Upcoming themes:

  • Christmas
  • Receiver's choice (list 5-10 themes you'd like, and your partner will choose ONE of those themes to base their creation on)

If you have any questions, please just ask!
