Pocket letter! Halloween inspired.

Have you heard about Pocket letters yet?  They are fun, creative, and quick and easy to make to swap with a pal.

Here is my Halloween inspire pocket letter.  And a little tutorial to show how you can collect a few fun things and make one and swap with a partner.

To start you need to pick out a pretty paper. This is Recollections black and grey. I got it at Michael’s and it was on sale!

You need to divide your paper into nine 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 squares. The size of the pockets of your baseball card holder.  You can find these baseball card holders anywhere they sell trading cards. They come with 9 pockets and with 3 holes on the side so you can store them in a binder.

The fun part. Picking out fun little items to put into the pockets! I found this cool ribbon at Dollar General. Its a nice quality wire ribbon.  And only 2.00

I searched the Michael’s discount and clearance items.  I found these tassels for under a dollar. I took a few out and placed them in a pocket.

Found some cute stickers also at Michaels. They are a orange color so I figure that was good to go along with my inspired look. I cut most of the white area off so these would fit in a pocket

Here is the finished page. I stamped some white card stock for a little back ground action. then filled the pockets with the goodies. I made a ATC for the middle, I had that little skeleton guy from other projects, decorative tape is added also. 

The sky’s the limit on what you can do with these little pocket letters. If you are interested in trying this you can find groups via Google+. Or join a group on facebook. Or gather up a few friends and start swapping!

Remember this is a fun project to share some extra craft stuff with friends or pick a theme and have fun with it. I look for fun things from around my house and shop the sales at Michaels and Jo Ann fabrics and yard sales and thrift stores. In return you get a few new little things to try out in your art projects.
