I just found out about pocket letters yesterday, and am super excited about them! At first I just wanted to join swaps others have created, and I have joined a couple and am watching others, but I didn't see this theme and I really wanted to do it.

I am into girly, feminine things and want to make as well as receive a pocket letter that is for those of us who like pinks, purples, lace, shabby chic, etc. The letter contents are Sender's choice within this theme guideline.

What is a pocket letter? Well, they are best explained by their creator, Janette Lane http://janettelane.blogspot.com/2015/02/what-are-pocket-letters.html

This pocket letter should be full of feminine, girly touches. You don't have to do shabby chic, for example, but this isn't the swap for brown paper or boys' stickers :)

Newbies to the pocket letter world are obviously allowed, as I am one myself, lol, but please put thought and effort into this and send something you would be happy to receive!!! Those with a rating of 4.95 or above and at least 15 type 3 swaps please.

You can start on this now as it is sender's choice of contents, but don't forget the basics: include a letter, your username, and the name of the swap. Also please include at least a few goodies for your partner somehow...I see that not all pocket letters seem to. These can include, but are not limited to, Flair, tea, page flags, sticky notes, fun paperclips...your finished page should fit nicely into a business envelope and will probably only cost 2 or 3 stamps to send.

OK now you got me. What is "Flair"? Google is absolutely no help at all.

smmarrty 05/28/2015 #

Flair is/are buttons, pin or flat back buttons or sticker/scrapbook embellishments that look like buttons.

"Flair" is a general term used to describe round buttons/pins of various sizes pinned to one's shirts and used to express one's self. Can also be without the pin back. Search "Flair buttons" and view the images results. :)

"Flair" - learn something new, everyday in this crafty world. Time frame is a little quick if you don't have a "pocket letter" inventory on hand. especially if you want to personalize the letter. ;-(

OK, sorry to change the subject, but every reference to "flair" makes me think of the movie Office Space.

Thanks for the education. I didn't realize I had a shoe box of flair hidden in my house some place. Now if I could just find that thing.

@lr77 -high five- Same here!

gooddog56 06/ 5/2015 #

Yeah, I never knew I had so much flair, either...coolness!

quirkandbramble 06/ 5/2015 #

Should we decorate both sides or can we leave the back undecorated?

ladywolfsong 06/ 6/2015 #

@quirkandbramble - you should at least have pretty paper on the back as many people save these in a binder and that makes it nicer to flip through
