This swap is for Pocket letter newbies, who want a chance to try out this new penpal craze, in a safe, judgment free swap. No stress, no worries. For this swap there is no wrong way of doing a Pocket Letter.

You will have one partner. Basically, you fill up a 9 pocket trading card sleeve with 2.5 X 3.5 scrapbook paper, decorated with things like quotes, stickers, ribbon, ect. And, inside the pockets you tuck in the back little goodies. They might be washi tape samples , ribbon, stickers, buttons, embellishments, tea bag, sequins, etc, The first pocket holds a nice letter from you, about a 1/2 page, and include a few things your grateful for and how you plan on celebrating Thanksgiving.

This pocket letter has a Thanksgiving theme Theme. .
Get creative! you can do it!! You do not have to decorate the back of the pocket, only the front.

Make sure the swap name and your Swapbot name is on there somewhere.

Remember: this swap is for people who are new at pocket letters, so if your picky, this may not be the swap for you

Try to keep things relatively flat, when you fold this letter into thirds, you can mail it in a long envelope. Open to swappers with at least a rating of 4.97, and has at least 5 type 3 swaps. I will be checking profiles carefully. If you have recent or unexplained 1's or 3's please Pm me.

Send your swap on time, and don't forget to rate your partner. Think of your rating as a thank you note, its very nice to thank the person who took time to create something for you. Rate a 5 if it was sent on time ,even if you didn't like it. If you don't receive your swap please let me and your partner know before rating a 1 or 3.

I have had interest in a series of pocket letter newbie swaps , so Im setting up a monthly swap for at least through September: Here are the themes
* July - Red, White and Blue
* August- Make it Sparkle
* September- Fall Leaves/ Colors
* October- Halloween * November - Thanksgiving
* December- Christmas

check out my alphabet pocket letter swap also

So join one or join all, If anyone has ideas for future pocket letters or themes, I'm open to suggestions. There is lots of Youtube videos and Pintrest boards out there if you need ideas.

This is a US swap only, but if anyone is interested in hosting an international one, please PM me.

Before partners are assigned, I will check profiles, and ban if you dont meet the requirements of the swap.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my swap, I hope you join i

EEP! Some newbies with no ratings in here...

How the heck do you join a swap when no one gives you a chance to get rated??? I have been making pocket letters for almost a year. I have no problem doing many swaps on Facebook, but can never get a chance to prove my work in any of the swaps.

I guess this site is off limits for newbies....

Thanks Brighteyes
