Each of the nine pockets are to be filled ie 1 something in the first pocket, 2 somethings in the second etc.  I had Graphic 45s "Twelve Days of Christmas" paper and stamps, so that was easy!  And so was taking a shabby chic style.  I'm pleased with how it came out and I'm doing another with Graphic 45s "A Christmas Carole".

Holiday Pocket Letters (2)

That post was getting a bit long so here goes the second batch.

"Retro" - I seem to have a "model" underway.  A banner across the top, front pockets filled with embellishments.

The back - the pockets are filled with vintage style images, which are not affixed and can be used and an envelope for the "letter".

A custom made box to contain the letter and mail it.

"Starlight Mints"  - the front pockets filled with embellishments, a tag and a banner across the top.

The back pockets are filled with vintage image gift tags and an envelope is attached to contain the "letter".

I really do love creating the custom box to contain my "Pocket Letters", a special touch.

Holiday Pocket Letters

Are you doing "Pocket Letters" yet?  I just recently discovered them and of course I'm in full production :)  "Pocket Letters" are a mix of pen pal and artsy/crafty fun.  Check out Janette Lane's tutorials and her  "Pocket Letter Pals"  site.

Here are a few that I have done for swaps.

"Santa" - the front, all of the pockets are full of embellishments for my swap partner to use, the banner is attached to the outside,

and the back pockets which I have filled with vintage image gifts tags and and attached envelope I made for the "letter".

I like to make a custom box for the folded "Pocket Letter".

"Krafty Christmas" - the front, again filled with an assortment of embellishments, a banner attached across the top (pop dots)

and the back pockets.  Here I used a single sheet of paper that I have simply cut and and left in order to recreate the "scene".  Again an envelope is attached to hold the "letter".

A custom box to contain the letter.  Do a Youtube search to find several variations on creating the box.
