#ealmakes: Have you heard about Pocket Letters??

6:11 AM

Hello lovelies and welcome to a fun #ealmakes post.

This post is all about a snail mail revolution that's in full swing in the crafty world called pocket letters. The creator of the letters is Janette Lane and she has awesome videos, pictures and inspiration on her blog HERE.

Here is how Janette describes pocket letters:

"I created Pocket Letters™ as a new way to send letters to your new or existing penpals. 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. This can be a one-time exchange or you can keep exchanging Pocket Letters indefinitely. You fill the pockets with anything you like (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, etc.) A short note or letter is included and tucked into one of the pockets. Then the Pocket Letter is folded up and sent in a standard 10 size envelope. It's the perfect way to send and collect letters from other Pocket Letter Pals (ie people who are sending mail in this format) around the world and a convenient way to store them. They fit perfectly in a binder!"

Janette herself creates the most beautiful pocket letters and I know both Emily and I would love to swap with her one day-I think she has a full mail list at the moment though and that's no surprise.

We have been swapping between ourselves and other lovely crafty ladies and they are just so much fun and definitely addicting to make and collect-and such a fun way to meet people from all over the world who also enjoy paper crafting and snail mail!
