Christmas Pocket Letter Swap

Deb from Garage Sale Gal hosted a Christmas Pocket Letter swap this year for her readers.  What is a pocket letter?  I had to ask, too!

A pocket letter is a penpal letter using a sleeve from a baseball trading card collector page.  Each of the nine sleeves are filled with little goodies and one of them has a letter!  These sleeves are collected and stored in a three ring binder, usually.

I received my pocket letter from Pam at Virginia Retro.  She is new to pocket letters, too, but you'd never know it by looking at this cute letter!

You can see the cute ornament that is hanging on the left.  Each pocket is decorated with stickers and cute papers, about the size of a playing card.  Each pocket held little stickers.  There are buttons inside some of the pockets.  See the washi tape on the left?  

Inside my package were these cute bags of tea.  I am glad they are caffeine free.  I have enough trouble falling asleep at night!

I also got this cute little book of women's wisdom, a bookmark (already in my bible marking the birth of Christ) and the adorable antique quilt square!  I love poinsettias.  Can't wait to do something with it!

I forgot to take pictures of the one I made.  I hope that Pam likes it as much as I like hers!

Would you like to comment?

  1. I'm glad you like it Terri! I enjoyed making it for you. Just to be sure you know, the loose goodies (buttons, tags, stickers, etc.) behind the ATCs, are supposed to be removed. They are for you to use for crafting. The tea bags were too large to fit in the pockets, lol.

    I haven't received my package yet, but hopefully soon. :) Pam

  2. That was a sweet pocket letter. Thank you for joining the swap. Sorry this is late!
    Merry Christmas,
