Only one person from each (US) state may join! Please post the state you're representing in the comment section below.

For this swap you will be making a Pocket Letter for your partner with your state as the theme! If this goes well I will host one every month. :)

These are the requirements for the 9 pockets and can be in any order you like, but all must be included! Be creative as many things can be interpreted in different ways by the sender.

  • Shape: One pocket is to be the theme of your state's shape. Can be a picture, cut-out, drawing, etc.

  • State Info: One pocket must include information about your state. Include good tourist destinations.

  • State Flower: One pocket must be decorated with the theme of your state flower. You can include pictures, drawings, color themes, etc.

  • Letter about you: A brief letter talking about yourself, your hobbies, inspriation for the pocket letter, etc.

  • Tea: A tea bag, sender's choice but check partner's preferences if any. A type of tea that represents the culture of your country would be great.

  • Present: A small present. Sender's choice. Ideas are a keychain, magnet, ATC

  • Swap info: One pocket should include the swap name, sender name, recipient name and date.

  • Goodies: Include at least 5 individual pieces of one or more of the following: used stamps, stickers, ephemera, sticky notes, washi tape samples.

  • Sender's Choice: One pocket is sender's choice! Be creative. :)

Things to keep in mind:

  • Be sure to include your state's name (perhaps in the center) of your Pocket Letter in large letters.

  • All decoration is sender's choice, but please make sure you DO decorate somewhat, not just include the contents of each pocket.

  • Only send something you would like to receive!

  • You may represent a state you are from or that you live in. Just be sure you have all required items and post the state you will represent!

Only raters with a rating of 4.9+ or higher. No unrated swappers. I will ban anyone I feel may flake.

This is such a cool idea! I can't wait to see the one I get. Mine is just about ready to send รขโ„ขยฅ

Since so many have not yet sent, I have extended the date one more week, giving a full month from the start time!

thank you for the extension. I really needed it. I have had a rough couple of weeks with my health.
