This swap is for Pocket letter newbies, who want a chance to try out this new penpal craze, in a safe, judgment free swap.

For this swap you will have one partner Basically, you fill up a 9 pocket trading card sleeve with 2.5 X 3.5 scrapbook paper, And, inside the pockets you tuck in little goodies. They might be washi tape samples , ribbon, stickers, buttons, embellishments, tea bag, sequins, etc,
The first pocket holds a nice letter from you, about a 1/2 page
This Pocket Letter has a butterfly theme

It doesn't have to be totally decorated in butterflies, but incorporate the butterflies in at least 5 of the pockets.
Get creative! you can do it!!
You do not have to decorate the back of the pocket, only the front.

Make sure the swap name and your Swapbot name is on there somewhere.

Remember: this swap is for people who are new at pocket letters, so if your picky, this may not be the swap for you

Try to keep things relatively flat, when you fold this protector into thirds, you can mail it in a long envelope.
Open to swappers with at least a rating of 4.97, and has at least 5 type 3 swaps. I will be checking profiles carefully. If you have recent or unexplained 1's or 3's please Pm me.

Send your swap on time, and don't forget to rate your partner. Think of your rating as a thank you note, its very nice to thank the person who took time to create something for you Rate a 5 if it was sent on time ,even if you didn't like it.

Thanks for joining my swap. If there's a lot of interest, I will do monthly theme swaps

UPDATE 5/13/2015 I have had interest in a series of pocket letter newbie swaps , so Im setting up a monthly swap for at least through September: Here are the themes * June- Summer * July - Red, White and Blue
* August- Make it Sparkle
* September- Fall Leaves/ Colors
So join one or join all, If anyone has ideas for future pocket letters or themes, Im open to suggestions.

This is a US swap only, but if anyone is interested in hosting an international one, please PM me.

Though Im not new to Swapbot, I am new to hosting, if there is any veteran hostesses who have ideas of how I can make this swap better, please send me a PM, I can use all the help I can get. Thanks for taking the time to look at my swap, I hope you join in!

There are great tutorials on YouTube by the creator of Pocket Letters Janette Lane. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C551yphwG_o

She also has several videos about getting items from the $1 store to use in your pocket letter.

I also am a newbie to swapbot & do not have a rating. How do I get a rating?

jakeandnicksmom 05/15/2015 #

I sent you a message @jske

jakeandnicksmom 05/15/2015 #

OMG, you guys are amazing. Made it to Top Swaps :)

Zoebolt 05/16/2015 #

Hey - so I was wondering something. So the theme is butterflies, that I understand and all. What I'm wondering is so all the tuck ins have to be butterfly themed too? Cause that might be difficult...

jakeandnicksmom 05/16/2015 #

No, they don't have to be all butterfly themed, just decorate the fronts with butterflies, at least 5 of the pockets. The tuck ins can be anything fun that will fit. This is intended to be pretty laid back, since we are all pretty new at this, I hope that answers your questions, Pm me if anyone has questions.

jakeandnicksmom 05/16/2015 #

Just a reminder I will be checking all profiles before assigning partners tommarow, there is a min of 5 type 3 swaps. thanks everyone for signing up♡♡♡♡
