Ever since I started planning and making my jewelry my desire to create and craft has been really intense. I've been looking for some fun projects to do that are within my capability and being sick I had some time to binge watch some YouTube videos and I'm so excited because I found some projects that I'm so excited about! The first one is something called a Pocket Letter and the other is a Flipbook!
The first project that I found and that I am SO EXCITED about is called a pocket letter. You can read more about it by clicking the link above (just click where it says Pocket Letter) but a quick explanation is that you take a baseball card sleeve that has nine pockets. You decorate nine cards and you slide one into each sleeve. Each of those decorative cards hides a small treat or gift that you slide in behind the card. I love this idea because you can be really creative in decorating the cards and you get to include little goodies for the recipient! You also include a letter in one of the pockets. It was created with the idea of pen pals in mind so you would swap pocket letters with a pen pal. I would love to do swaps down the road but I think this is the cutest way to give a gift or tell someone that you are thinking about them. The goodies are small tokens typically but I really love how thoughtful the whole thing is. You can exercise your creativity by using a color theme or some other theme for your pocket letter like the one above (by Creawitch). I'm so excited to try this and who knows, maybe one of you will win a pocket letter in an upcoming giveaway ;)
I am having a hard time finding a good picture of a flip book but if you click here you can check out the video I watched that got me into the idea of making a flip book! A flip book is essentially a small DIY scrapbook that you can decorate for any occasion or to capture the memories of a specific event, holiday, vacation, etc. They also really allow you to explore your creativity and I think they are really wonderful gifts to make. It's hard for me to explain but check out Paige's video above. She is amazing and really talented, she owns one of my favorite sticker shops and as soon as I saw this video I knew I had to give it a try!
