Janette Lane's blog, the lady who started it all! Basically you fill the pockets of a plastic trading card wallet with anything you fancy and you put in a little letter about yourself. You join the Pocket Letter Pals Network or Facebook page, find yourself a pal, exchange addresses and pop it in the post. My first pal is Julie who is in the States and wanted a Scottish/UK themed pocket, happy to oblige!
The pic' above is the front of the pocket letter. I used up some Portobello Road papers and stickers I had left over from a project I did ages ago. The aeroplane is a plastic page marker. The pic' below is a close up of the little charms and twine I added to the side of the pocket.
