Hey crafty friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I didn’t get any crafting done over the weekend, but I did finish my pocket letter during the week for my swap pal. You might be asking “what is a pocket letter?”. According to Janette Lane’s website (she started the pocket letter trend) it is “a new way to send letters to your new or existing pen pals. 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.” (http://janettelane.blogspot.com/2015/02/what-are-pocket-letters.html)
So, on to the swap part… I am in a Facebook Group called Pink Pixel Graphics VIPs. This is really a planner group. Pink Pixel Graphics website offers free planner printables, digital planner items, crafts and cut files. I found her website and joined the FB group. The group hosts a swap every month and you can opt-in if you like. I have never made a pocket letter so I thought it would be fun. You get paired up and then you contact your swap partner and get to know them to see what they would like in their pocket letter. While getting to know Pegi I found out she likes Harry Potter too! I knew right away that would be my theme for the letter.
I went out on Pinterest and found some great ideas. Like this one for Butterbeer.
I also did a Google search to find some cute print and cut images to cut out on my Cricut.
I was really fun! If any of you would like to swap pocket letters or cards, let me know. I would be happy to swap with you. I will leave links under the video on where to find the printable Hogwarts letter.
