Inspired by Pinterest: Pocket Letters, Pocket Letter Pals

Join me for today's Inspired by Pinterest on My Craft Channel as I share creative pins and resources for Pocket Letters. These are penpal letters in pocket format. Simply fill all the pockets of a 9-pocket page protector and send the whole page to someone who wants to swap or to your existing penpal. A great way to show off our paper crafting skills and use up your stash of scrapbook supplies.

      Pocket Letters™ and Pocket Letter Pals were created by Janette of Janette Lane Blog as a
      new way to send and collect penpal letters.
      Pocket Letters are penpal letters in pocket format. Basically, you fill all the pockets of a 9 Pocket Page Protector (or similar) and send the whole page to someone who wants to swap or to your existing penpal(s).
      You fill the pockets with the components of a typical penpal letter. Items such as stickers, tea bags, ephemera, washi tape samples, and pictures can be added.
      A letter is included and tucked into one of the pockets.
      The Pocket Letter folds up easily and is then sent to your Pocket Letter Pal in a standard 10 size envelope.
      It's the perfect way to send and collect letters from other Pocket Letter Pals (i.e. people who are sending mail in this format) around the world.
      They also fit perfectly in a binder for easy storage!
This can be a one-time exchange or you can swap Pocket Letters indefinitely.

Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.  

If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!
