My version of a pocket letter...


Pocket-letter-by-Yvonne-Yam-for-Maya-Road

Hello friends! Have you heard about the latest craze in happy mail? It's a pocket letter, a term coined by Janette Lane. Basically you fill a pocket page with sweet goodies that the recipient can use or admire. 


Now, I didn't have the 9 pocket trading card protector which folds neatly into 3 to fit a standard 10 size envelope. But I do have lots of 6x8 pocket pages [eh...my failed attempt at Project Life *winks*]...and you know me, I'm a rule-breaker...*LOL*


Fortunately, there was at least ONE pocket I could really go crazy with the embellishments. :) 


I also added chipboard pieces and paper clips the recipient could use. And the pretty trim....it is held together by the two floral paper clips. Gotta love Maya Road embellishments.:)

So who should I send this pocket letter to?

Thanks for informing me about the pocket letter.....haven't seen or heard about it before....cool idea! Maybe the pocket letter will become the new ATC. What a great and beautiful way to exchange crafty goodies and embellishments. Your version is Yvonnelishes!

I participate in Snail mail revival and through this now have 4 penpals. I have started using the Pocket Letter method and love it. It stops me from not stopping , gives me a start and finish point. I find it also helps me from letting my parcel getting to bulky as postage can be a killer , especially sending overseas. Your Pocket Letter is beautiful, I love the bird especially. Rule breakers are great ..... new ideas are created

Omgosh, what a fun idea! I've heard of these.... but have to admit I didn't really know what they were meant for... haha! How super fun and super adorable! I am loving all those pretty Tea Garden papers, and your fun little clips are just the sweetest. Loving that envelope with the bird, too!
