Letter Holder

I'm taking Ronda Palazzari's Art of Pen Pal course and one of the first things she taught us to make was this really cute letter carrier.
It's such a cute idea that I have already made one more and have papers ready to make another!  I think they will make perfect gifts or RAK's, especially for those who send letters or cards regularly.  I've also repurposed my second one for a recipe folder...

Ronda gives us heaps of options and keep saying 'make it you' so I did...  It's green - very me.  It has paisley - very me.  It has washi - very me.  It has a little glitter - very me.  The one thing it is missing is ribbon but I fixed that with make number two which I will share in a separate post tomorrow.

Inside has two pockets - I'm keeping sheets of paper in one pocket and envelopes in the other pocket at the moment.  During the course I will send and receive letters and art from the same person, they will become my pen pal for want of another term.  I intend to put her letters in one of the pockets to keep the safe and all together and use the other pocket for things I will be sending to her. 

It has quite a high capacity... I reckon you could get quite a few letters in with no problems.

So there you have it.  A cute letter holder.  I'm sharing this with my classmates and Ronda.  And if you drop by from anywhere else Ronda is running the course again in September, so far I've learnt a lot and I would recommend giving the course a go  :)

Thanks for stopping by
