Today you can find me guest posting over on the NoteMaker blog! I’ve put together a DIY post: Six (wrapping) ways with washi tape, using some fantastic MT Washi Tapes – with some good old fashioned brown paper & string.

It was a lot of fun to put together! If you pop over for a look, have a browse of their online stationery store – so much to see. I really do love stationery….almost as much as yarn 😉

Snail Mail with a Difference :: Pocket Letters


Pocket Letter 2

I’ve been attempting to catch up on some snail mail / pen pal replies lately, now that the market craziness is over for a bit.

First up, I owed a letter to my ‘creative pen pal swap‘ partner, and I was excited to try out a ‘new’ (new to me!) idea that I’d come across on the web – pocket letters.

A pocket letter is based around the idea of using a pocket sleeve page that is commonly used for scrapbooking/project life albums. I actually had a packet of these refills in the cupboard, along with some existing insert cards that I use for other snail mail so I could make a start straight away.

It was a lot of fun filling the pockets with coordinating papers and of course, a few goodies!!

It turns out there is a whole blog and Instagram account dedicated to Pocket Letters which you can find here and here. So much lovely inspiration!

When I posted a picture of my pocket letter on Instagram, a lovely lady offered to send me a pocket letter – and it arrived this past Monday. I was blown away by the letter and the effort that was put into it’s creation – each and every pocket contained a little surprise! It was so much fun to open.
