Today I am going to teach you all how I created a donut themed pocket letter using mainly the supplies that came in the February PopFizzPaper planner kit!
First thing you need to do is gather your supplies. Here is what I used:
Cardstock or craft paper (in this case I used the paper that came in the planner kit)
9 slot baseball card holder
Stickers (again I'm using the ones that came in the kit)
Washi tape (the purple one is from the kit and the rest are ones I thought would match)
Rhinestones (also from the kit)
Any extra ephemera or embellishments you may want to use.
Next thing I did was draw out the size I wanted the papers to be and I measured it out with my ruler. 2.5 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall. It might be a little hard to see on the sprinkle paper, but in person I could see it just fine. After that I placed my paper on my paper trimmer and cut all of the sheets down to size.
I decided to hang onto the scraps in case I wanted to use them in the pocket letter. Next comes the hard part. Choosing which papers you want to go in what pocket. These are the ones I picked and how I decided to lay them out.
Here is how the first pocket came out looking. I added a piece of scrap paper and cut the ends to make it look like a flag. Then I added a heart sticker from the sticker sheet that came in the kit to the corner. I also added some alpha letters to label what I was putting in that pocket.
This next pocket turned out to be one of my favorites! I did the same thing as the last one for the scrap piece but this time I only cut one end. Then I added a donut sticker on top of the flag. At the top of the card I added layers of washi tape and cut all of the ends into flag shapes. Then I took a scrap piece of a sticky note and cut it to look like a flag so I could layer some alpha letters on top and you would still be able to read it.
This next pocket I kept fairly simple with the giant sticker. I just added a small bit of washi and cut it into a flag shape. I also added more alpha letters to label what this pocket would hold.
I experimented with ink for this pocket. I tore off this donut checklist from a sticky note pad and inked the frayed edges so it would stand out against the background. I also layered some washi underneath to help make it stand out from the pink background. Then I added a sticker to the side that says donuts.
This next pocket I kept really simple. I just added rhinestones to the outside of the pocket inside in the donut holes of the paper. I love the paper that came in this kit so much so I thought it deserved to really stand out! Here is what it looks like inside the pocket.
For the center pocket I made it a shaker pocket! All I did was stick the paper I wanted inside and then added sequins on top of the paper. After that I sealed it with a strip of washi tape.
I continued the trend with this pocket by adding a scrap piece and cutting it to look like a flag. As well as the heart sticker and alpha letters. I also layered some washi tape on the side and cut them to look like flags.
For this pocket I took a long piece of the scrap paper and put it horizontally across the paper and stapled the ends to the original paper. I then cut out a circle on a sticky note pad and inked the edges. Then I adhered it to the strip of scrap paper with my adhesive roller. And finally added some alpha letters to spell out tags.
The last pocket follows along with most of the others. Scrap paper on the bottom cut into a flag shape, heart sticker, and alpha letters for labeling. As for the sticker, it's from the sticker sheet that came with the kit. It was very large so I cut it in half and placed them crookedly on the card to make it look unique. I also added some sequins to the top left corner and added rhinestones in the center of the sequins.
And this is what the final product ended up looking like! I really love it and I hope the recipient does as well. The PopFizzPaper planner kit had so many items to make this that I hardly had to pull from my own stash!
In this video I show what I put behind each pocket.
