I should feel ashamed that I made those purchases and then nothing with them. But, as crafters, don’t we do that sometimes? It’s not a good idea but we still do it.
Well, in honor of St. Valentine, I decided to make another pocket letter! I have a friend in mind for this cutie!
I used the same type of 9 pocket page protectors as the St. Patrick’s day pocket letter. I found them on last year on Amazon.com. They were pretty cheap. I know that you can also get them at the big box stores...just look for sports trading card protectors.
To make my Valentine pocket letter I cut 18 pieces of paper to 2 ½” X 3 ½”. I know that last year I cut them into 2 ⅝” X 3 ½” but I felt like I could streamline the measurements. The smidgen of extra space allows me to slip them in each page as well as add items to each page.
I pulled out my stickers, gemstones, dollies and cut outs for items to add to each pocket. You know, all of the things that you have in your Valentine’s craft box.
I created Valentine’s paper clips and mini envelopes to give to my pen pal. When your friend mail is going to someone that doesn’t use planners or paper craft, you try to give them things that they will use. I know that this friends will use paper clips so I made 2 sections with them.
