Seasonal Pocket Letters

In my last post I wrote about holiday mail.  Today I have just a bit more of my outgoing mail to share: two pocket letters.  First up is this autumn-themed letter.

Supplies: patterned paper from Doodlebug Design, alphabet stickers from October Afternoon, cat stickers from Mrs. Grossman's, pumpkin sticker from Mello Smello.

Supplies: patterned paper from October Afternoon, to/from tag from Crate Paper, washi tape from 3M/Scotch, snowman stickers from my stash, all other stickers from Mrs. Grossman's.

And here is a Christmas-themed pocket letter that I recently mailed.  As you see, I use baseball card holders for my pocket letters.  My process is simple: I decorate the front of the card holder and hide the handwritten letter behind the decorations.  Long live snail mail!  :)

Pocket letters seem to have taken over the paper crafting industry. I see them everywhere I visit. Yours are truly lovely, and I like the diversity of the ones you created. They are super. If only snail mail weren't so expensive, we'd do more of it, I'm sure.

I have never even heard of pocket letters before this very moment. I guess I should venture out of my bubble every so often huh.
Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

These pocket letters look like so much fun. I'm finally digging into my pocket page stash and am looking forward to creating some of these. Thanks for sharing!
