Pen Pal Letter Writing Challenge: Week 2 #52weeksnailmailchallenge

Here we are at week #2 of our #52weeksnailmailchallenge. 
I added some other ways you can join in the fun.  Pen Pal letter writing.  You must have had a pen pal at some point in your life.  Right!
If not, then it is never to late to start.  So, now is the time to get started with us and keep in touch with your friends near and far by old fashioned letter writing.  Lovingly called "snail mail" these days.  
I invited a friend of mine on my IG account to join in the fun and she said:  " I don't know what a snail mail challenge is".  And, I thought I was the one living a sheltered life. Giggle!

That made me realize that some of you dear reader's may have never heard letter writing called "snail mail" either.  
When technology took over the lives of just about everyone on the planet.  The art of writing a letter or card and sending it in the mail came to a state of near extinction.
But, some of us like getting a card or letter in the mail and are reviving this lost art in hopes to bring people back closer in their relationships like it used to be 20 years ago.
Now that we've cleared that up let's move on to the project I made using one of the cool method's of letter writing I found on Pinterest.

If you notice there is a cute paper clip charm hanging out at the top of the pocket letter.  It was so easy to make.  If you'd like to make them yourself here are the supplies you will need.
(large paper clips, charms)
Just open the outside of the paperclip and slide the charm on and bring it around to the top of the paper clip.  Tada!
You just made your very own paper clip charms. Easy as pie!

I lined the inside with pretty coordinating papers.  Added 3 of my handmade envelopes at the top of each section.  Filled up each envelope with some goodies like tea bag, confetti, washi tape and few more little surprises.
At the bottom of each pocket letter folder are 3 more pockets.
I filled them with tags, post cards and quotes.
It folds over and has a ribbon to tie and keep it closed.
Pop it in a business size envelope and mail it for under $1.

All of the pocket letter's you see are available for you to purchase from my Etsy shop.  If you live a very busy life and don't feel you have the time to sit and make your own.  
No problem!
I've made them for you in a variety of colors and themes.
I also take custom requests.  So if you want me to make you one up in a certain theme and color just head over to my Etsy shop,
and use the Custom Order button.

I'd love to know how you are doing with your letter writing challenge.  
Would you please leave a comment below and let me know what you've made?

Sending You Sunshine,
