If you're like me, you love to create pockets to send paper goodies to your penpals! PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a pocket letter swap.

For this swap, you will send a paper pocket filled with ephemera. The theme is botanical and flowers so please keep this in mind when putting your swap together. The contents you enclose can be sender's choice but it's always nice to receive something you know your partner will like. Here are some ideas of goodies I like to enclose: stickers, tags, book pages, washi tape samples, bookmarks, labels, vintage ephemera, tickets, notecards, journaling cards, photos, postcards, etc. I personally like to make my own diy ephemera as well. Please be sure to look at their profile to see their likes and dislikes. This is a flat mail swap however, it is pretty easy to get carried away and fill these pockets up quickly and it can get bulky.

Now, on to the pocket. Be creative! Decorate it however you'd like, but really put forth some effort. You can draw, paint, stamp, paste... Pick a theme, or be totally random. The possibilities are endless! And don't feel intimidated... This is for beginners, after all! :)

Here are some quick pocket tutorials and inspiration videos:

When mailing out swaps please be sure to package it securely to avoid getting damaged in the mail. Also please include a note with your swap.

NOTE: This is an International Swap. *Newbies welcome but must have a completed profile filled out. No recent 1 ratings within the past 3 months. **NO FLAKERS OR NO SENDS!!!. All bad swappers will be reported.

If you have any questions please message me. Thank you!!! Happy Swapping!!!
