Let's swap pocket letters!

Pocket Letters are where you take a 9 pocket trading card page and fill each pocket with an ATC (although they don't have to be as detailed as an ATC) and small goodies tucked in behind the ATCs (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, ephemera, craft supplies, paper clips, beads) and in one pocket, include a letter.
If you don't know where to find 9 pocket pages they are sold where collectible card games are sold such as Walmat or your local game store.  Or Amazon (25 for $5)
http://www.amazon.com/Ultra-Pro-Pocket-Page-Protectors/dp/B005HIOVOG

Each pocket can be a different theme or you can have one theme across all 9 pockets

This should be a low cost swap if you keep to all flat items and embellishments and should fit in an
A4 envelope (4 1/4" x 6 1/4") (you would have to fold it but that should not be an issue) or similar size.  I have heard that they should fit into a business sized envelope (4 1/8" x 9 1/2"). Just make sure that it is packaged well and the corners won't tear the envelope! Taping the edges of the envelope might be a good idea.

You can choose 1 or 2 partners.

Check into the swap thread every week!

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Pocket Letters Round 3
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country (as it would appear on an envelope):
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 18 years old(YES/NO)

Do you want 1 or 2 partners?
What theme(s) would you like your partner to consider making for you?
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

What are your favorite colors:
What colors do you dislike:
List themes you do NOT want to receive:
What (if anything) would you NOT want to receive as an extra/goodie in the pockets behind the ATCs?  

Any allergens in your home (pets, smoke, pollen)?
Do you have any allergies?
Pinterest link (to give your partner an idea of what you like)

Anything else youd like to tell the organizer or partner NOT listed in the questionnaire?



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

I was waiting for this round to start ... sadly I had to drop out of Round 2 because of a family death but everything is going fine so I'm ready to go.  Questionnaire sent.
