My newest swap with my FB group was one of the new things, pocket letters. OK, I have to start by saying how incredibly fun this swap was! It was so stress free. I mean, sometimes when I join a swap I feel stressed to outdo others...my type A personality I guess. This was so not like that. So, check it out....
First we started with a page map...this really took a lot of the struggle of what to put out of the swap.
Next, I added paper squares to each pocket so my "letter" would look pretty from both sides. I used a summer print from BoBunny...perfect for the theme of Summer Fun.
Now, all the fun stuff....stickers, tags, rhinestones, flowers, a handmade quote tag, and my letter. I do have to point out that quote tag....I love it and had a really hard time including it! I found a free clip art frame, added my sentiment and then printed out. I printed an extra frame to add dimension to parts of the card. I then added pearls, stickles and glitter pen to make it really stand out.
My finished product. Best thing, when folded up it fits in a regular legal size envelope!
I hope my partner likes her pocket letter as much as I liked putting it together!
Have you tried the latest thing, pocket letters?
