Decorated PenPal Pocket and Matching Envelope | Pen Pal With Me | Flat Mailer | Ephemera Holder

Thank you so much for joining me for this Decorated PenPal Pocket and Matching Envelope, Let's jump right in.

I started by creating my slimline envelope with the We R memory keepers envelope punch board. I then trimmed down my piece of 12 x 12 cardstock to be 9 by 12 inches and scored it at the 2.5, 6 and 8.5 inch marks, I then flipped it and scored at the 8 inch mark creating a small pocket on the bottom of my folio. I then folded each of my score lines and decided what I wanted to be the front and back of my folio.

Next I used some vellum to create a couple of pockets inside my folio and one tuck spot to help my letter to my penpal stay nicely inside of the folio. Now all thats left is to decorate the Folio and envelope to make them special for my penpal. I used several different pieces of ephemera and the Alphanumeric Theory dies to add the word letter and my penpals name for a fun touch. I also created a Belly band to hold the folio closed and a washi tape sample card as a fun treat for my penpal!!
