Pocket Page Letter Tutorial

In today’s Galentines tutorial, I’m going to share with you how to make a cool pen pal letter out of a pocket page protector.

I’m using a 6×8 pocket page protector, but you can use any size that you want. If you have some 12×12 left over page protectors from your Project Life albums, you can absolutely use those.

This is a great way to send a few little goodies to your Galentine or pen pal. It’s also a fantastic way to use up some of your 3×4 journaling cards. You can also fill up the pockets with folded up paper notes, little stickers, a packet of tea, or anything else you think your letter recipient might enjoy.

Supplies Needed:

  • A pocket page protector (I used a 6×8 with two 3×4 pockets and one 4×6 pocket).
  • Various journaling cards to fill the pockets
  • Embellishments to decorate the pockets

Personalize your pocket page letter for your Galentine/pen pal. I love this project because I get to use up things from my stash that aren’t necessarily my style but fit my friends perfectly. It’s also a great excuse to go overboard on the embellishing.

Tip: Sometimes you can find these pocket page protectors in the clearance sections at the big box stores, or at the second-hand shops like Tuesday Morning or Big Lots. This is the perfect way to use those. Since you’re not putting them in an album, or matching them up to pictures, it doesn’t matter what configuration the pockets are. If you don’t have a journaling card to fit the pocket you can always cut some patterned paper to go inside.

When you’re finished, fold it up and stick it in an envelope to mail out to your Galentine/pen pal. If you’ve got a bunch of bulky bits, put your pocket page letter in a padded envelope or wrap your letter in some tissue paper.
