To Try: Pocket Letters

Created in early 2015, Pocket Letters are gaining popularity in the crafty community. They are an accessible way to share creative letters and goodies with a penpal. I'll put some more information in this post, but first - inspiration. Each image leads to its source:

Now, what are Pocket Letters?

From Pocket Letter creator Janette Lane's Blog:

Basically it's a new way to write letters to penpals for a one time-swap or permanently. You decorate all the pockets of a trading card sleeve and send the whole page to someone who wants to swap with you. You can fill the pockets with anything you like (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, etc.) Make sure to include a short letter or note and tuck it in one of the pockets. It's the perfect way to collect letters from penpals around the world and a convenient way to store them. They fit perfectly in a binder! :)

I was always intimidated by scrapbooking, which is why I focus more on small projects like cards. These are such a fun idea though, so I will have to give them a shot. Have you tried Pocket Letters yet? Let's be penpals!
