Pocket Letters – a fun Way of sending Happymail

Pocket Letter Pals Happymail tutorial video

So … a couple of Days ago I stumbled across some beautiful Happymail tucked into Trading Card Sleeves on Instagram – and being a Person who LOVES Penpalling, Snailmail, Happymail & Co. I was really excited about this cute idea.
After a little research I found out it’s a fun idea Janette Lane came up with: Pocket Letters (go check out her Blogpost about them) … it reminded me of swapping Artist Trading Cards, which are also send / collected in those Card Sleeves and I really enjoyed working on that small format back when I was into ATCs – so I gave Pocket Letters a try and really love it. It’s so much fun and I truly LOVE the idea that after you receive some Happymail you can easily store it away in a Binder and look at it again & again (compared to the usual letters you just have to tuck away in Boxed or something because after some Months / Years of Penpalling you don’t know where else to put them to keep them …! Very convenient and oh so cute …! I made a little Video of the latest Set I made – so if you want some more Information and Inspiration check out the Video below!
