Fill the pockets of a clear trading card sheet with all sorts of fun goodies in a red and aqua blue theme. Neutral colors are allowed as long as the over all look is obviously red/aqua. Please include a letter meant to introduce yourself in one of the pockets (can be typed and/or on the shorter side.)

Aqua means different things to different people, so any tone that is in the turquoise and lighter teal family should be fine.

Please keep in mind that many people collect these letters in binders, so no pocket should be completely empty after the goodie is picked. For instance, if you filled a pocket with a tea bag, maybe also include a pretty piece of paper behind it so that remains after the tea is used.

Must use a standard clear 9 pocket trading card protector sheet. This is a good place to learn about pocket letters. Janette has done many follow up posts with a Q&A, videos, and photos of pocket letters she has sent and received. Browse around for inspiration.

Ideas of what to include:

  • atc
  • letters
  • washi tape samples
  • drawings
  • magazine articles
  • papers, labels, penpal supplies
  • tea, food/beauty samples
  • photos
  • embellishments
  • zines

Make sure you take your envelope to the window at the post office. It might be too thick to mail as a letter. Better safe than sorry.

USA only swap. You must have a 4.98 rating, and no 1's or 3's within the last 6 months to participate. I reserve the right to ban anyone I feel will not follow through, including people who only have ratings based on online swaps. I will angel if there are any flakers.

Next up in the series is going to be mint green and gold.
