OK so I entered a swap that had about 20 options that the sender could pick from to send and 1 of them was a mini pocket letter. I had never heard of these before so went on youtube to see what this is. And decided it would be fun to try it.

So this is a full size pocket letter... 3*3 (9 atc size pockets) atc single sheet size. The theme is open to the sender but I would really like mostly handmade elements. From what I gather on how these are done they have lots of bits and bobs and whatnots in them so please be mindful that all items are contained no one wants to open a glitter bomb so seal when approperate.

Also aparently these include a letter or card so include a note to your partner in one of the pockets.

Please do a good job and send lots of veriety and full pockets no one wants to get only minimal effort. Please make all pockets coehesive in design.

I'm hoping that some pros at pocket letters join and that I can learn a lot but its OK to be new to these like I am but please make sure if you have never done one that you watch some youtube tutorials before entering.

These are bulky so this one will be usa only but newbies are welvome.

Enjoy and have fun be creative and think handmade

I'm brand new to pocket letters(I'm always late to trends) but I've been watching quite a few videos and have been practicing making these. These are SO fun to make and I can't wait to see another artist's work! 😊

Most of the time on pocket letters you put little small items in the back of pockets like, embellishments, ribbon, buttons, washi samples, stickers, ATCs, etc would we be doing this on this swap?

I would imagine goodies should be included as for a lot of them that is the main purpose. I don't think I've made one with out goodies yet.
