Have you ever heard of Pocket Letters??
I just recently heard about it, looked into it and it is really awesome. I haven't had a chance to do one yet but it is definitely in the works. With that said, I was just to excited not to share it with all of you. I have added picture through out the post of inspirations of other peoples pocket letters.
Janette is the created of Pocket Letters, she came up with a brilliant idea of a new way to send letters through snail mail. Basically, you fill all the pockets of a 9 pocket trading card protector and send the whole page to someone who wants to swap with you. this can be a one time exchange or you can keep exchanging pocket letters indefinitely.
What to Include in Your Letter!!
For me I think I am nervous about what to include in my letter. I am here to tell you, you can fill the pockets with anything you like. But you need to make sure to include a short note or letter and tuck it into one of the pockets. The decorating part I think will come pretty easy to me, but I am still wondering what kinds of goodies I should include for my partner. I have created list of some of the items I am thinking of including into my future pocket letters.
- Silver and Gold Anything - I mean really who doesn't like a litte sparkle in there life!
- Stickers – As a planner addict I love to include stickers as little goodies inside the pockets.
- Clips Washi and Twine – need I say more!
- Mini sticky notes
