What’s a Pocket Letter?

Hi friends! Viewers have been asking me about pocket letters for a while now. The Pocket Letter trend was founded by Janette Lane as a way to send goodies and notes to current or new pen pals. The notes and goodies are housed in baseball card page protectors. There are swap groups you can join too and the movement is worldwide. I started out having no idea what I was doing but finished with a project I was happy with:

It feels like a cross between cardmaking and project life and artist trading cards. Best of all it is a social craft, you make, swap and collect them. It is easy to store the letters you receive too because they will fit in a standard binder!
