Okay, so how many of you have heard of pocket letters?? Do you know what they are?

Pocket Letters are essentially decorated and embellished trading card protector pages. They contain a letter in one of the pockets( as the name would imply) and then other little gifts and surprises in the others.

I had no idea about Pocket Letters until a few weeks ago and now I am little obsessed. I made my first one using some retired Stampin Up products and I absolutely love it.

In this pocket letter, I made the middle pocket a shaker pocket. I used a Project Life Fuse tool to do this. If you don't have one you could try sealing the pocket with tear n tape and washi.

Stampin' Up Suites are perfect for creating gorgeous, colour coordinated pocket letters! I ordered so much more holiday stuff after discovering these.  I can use everything in one project and still make completely different pocket letters using the same suite again.

For my first pocket letter I used supplies from Stampin' Up's Carousel Birthday suite. I am not including a supply list below as the paper and stamp set are retired but you can get a sense of how pocket letters work.

The DSP is cut to 2.5 x 3.5" for each pocket and you can embellish directly on the paper or on the outside of the pocket.

In this birthday pocket letter I included balloons, embellishments, chocolate, hair ties, a colouring page, pretty paper clips, and a charm.

I most definitely have plans to make more using current Stampin' Up! products :-)

Happy Stamping!
