Hello Peeps

Another new moth and another new challenge - great entries in our last one and remember, next week will be the winner's announcement! Meanwhile, another great photo for you - we have has some cold weather here lately (it is winter after all) and while we have had some lovely frosty blue days, we have had a few cold, grey days too......

#58: Pocket Books/Letters or Gift Card Holders 

TWIST include a crown

Yep, this is a challenge to do something different -
  • not just a card; 
  • not just a box; 
  • not just a tag; 
  • not just an album; 
  • not just a scrap page

So, what do we want? 
Basically anything that has a pocket into which you can put photos, tags, images, presents, gift cards.......

What are Pocket Letters and Pocket Letter Pals™?
Basically it's a new way to write letters to penpals for a one time-swap or permanently. You decorate all the pockets of a trading card sleeve or similar, and send the whole page to someone who wants to swap with you. You can fill the pockets with anything you like (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, etc.) Make sure to include a short letter or note and tuck it in one of the pockets. It's the perfect way to collect letters from penpals around the world and a convenient way to store them. They fit perfectly in a binder!

Project Life sheets would fit nicely in here

What is a Pocket Book? 
A book with pockets! Again, go to the internet and check out the YouTube video's on making pocket books or check out Pinterest where there are many different ones made. Decorate them to your hearts content as long as you don't use stamps!
Gift Card Holders
These can be pockets in a bag, or in a box or on a tag or purpose built!

Is there a prize?
