My First Pocket Pal Letter

Hello, everyone!!! I hope that your week is going well and that soon you will be enjoying a marvelous weekend!! We have had rain all week so sunshine would be a real treat!!

I guess with this posting I will have joined the latest craze in the papercrafting world---Pocket Pal Letters!!! It seems that they are EVERYWHERE!!! So here is my very first Pocket Pal Letter....


This is the front of my letter made to reciprocate a letter I received from Traci Savely...and admittedly I didn't know where to begin...hahaha  I have used papers from the Tilda Country Escape Paper Pad and used an 18 pocket page...9 on the front and 9 on the back. Each of the pockets has a small gift for the recipient. There are many instructions and examples over on You Tube for this phenomenon!! You can see on the spine, I have also used a resin flower, tiny bottles filled with fairy dust, and a pink bead charm. And here is the backside....


You can see that I have placed some tiny pearl embellies in the two diagonal pockets but the other pockets will remain a surprise until the recipient receives the letter.

Thank you so much for coming by and I hope to see you again real soon!! Until the next time, I send big hugs!!

I had never heard of a pocket pal letter, which makes me think we are not part of the same crafty world! I think the idea is great! And yours is lovely.

Oh no! Now you've done it Jacque. Here I was totally clueless to the latest and greatest craze and now you've gone and made me all curiouser!!! LOL I have never heard of this, not even in the slightest, but boy OH boy...look what I've been missing. These are just the coolest thing and WOW the one you've made is gorgoeus!! It's like a friendship advent calendar of sorts with gifts of admiration in each square. I love what you've done here!! Also, I'm so happy you're feeling better and that physical therapy is helping you!!
Big hugs to you,

This is gorgeous! I've seen a few of these around and they are so amazing! Have never tried making one myself - they look very time-intensive! But the result here is fabulous! So many little details to look at and explore!

I've been out of the stamping world for a looong time, so I have no idea what a pocket thingy is ...... but it doesn't matter, this is adorable! It does like way more work that I could handle though .... LOL

Your pocket letter is so pretty! The first one I made was a little intimidating but they are so much fun once you get started and so wonderful to receive.
