For this swap you will send one Cat themed pocket letter to one partner. The image is from a goggle image search.


There are different ways pocket letters can be done, so I will delineate the expectations for this swap here.

Front: Fill each pocket of a 9 slot plastic card protectors with a decorated 2.5 X 3.5 piece of cardstock. Think of it like making 9 ATCs without the sturdy backs except each ‘card’ does not have to be a breath-taking work of art. You definitely can use stickers!! Please however, do more than slap a single sticker on each piece of paper and call it done. Layers different elements and mix your media. Remember the emphasis is on the overall aesthetic of the entire page and not the artistry of any one single pocket.

Back: You don't have to embellish this side but make sure it looks pretty. Double sided cardstock works well for these letters. You can also insert another sheet of decorated paper on the backside if the paper you use for the front is one sided.

In the first pocket back insert a small letter to your partner about your cat. The other 8 pockets are yours to fill with goodies for your partner. Goodies do not have to be theme or profile specific, but it never hurts. Ideas for things that can be inserted into the back pockets include, but are not limited:


Washi Tape



Bling dots



Punch outs

paper ephemera

paper clips



Really anything you can think of that is flattish! Make sure you have enough postage as these can get heavier.

Fun swap! I've been wanting to do a pocket letter swap and I like your swap rules. One question, will you angel if we're flaked on? It's always a risk, especially with type 3 swaps.

It's my hope that with so many rules and such a high rating requirement that it will keep ify flakers at bay. But I will angel.

Awww could you make this international pls

naturenerd3 09/ 2/2017 #

@darkxangel84 I'm keeping this one US only due to cost, but you are welcome to set up an international version, and I might even join. I just can't afford to angel international swaps

Just an FYI I generally I wait until assigning partners to go through profiles and ban as needed
