We are getting so close to the end of this big holiday celebration, but don’t worry, we still have more inspiration to share and prizes to give away! If you have a crafty friend who likes to papercraft as much as you do, Nathalie Leonelli is here today to share the perfect gift idea with you, in pockets! Let’s take a look at what she made to share with us!


Hello! It’s Nathalie here to continue the celebration with a happy mail project! Today, I am sharing a Christmas-themed pocket letter using the pretty and whimsical Crate Paper Hey Santa collection. I loved making this unique gift with the lovely patterns and the big variety of elements included in this collection. 

Supplies | Patterned paper, chipboard stickers, shape stickers, puffy stickers, pre-made die-cut shapes, charms, sequins, tassel: Crate Paper Hey Santa collection; Twine: Doodlebug Design, Clips: Crate Paper, Staples; Vellum: Darice; Punches: WeR Memory Keepers, Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I create the pockets individually treating each of them as little gifts, emphasizing layers and textures as I think of ways to include goodies for the recipient.


No matter the collection, the Crate Paper chipboard stickers are always the best for layering. Mixed with some ephemera, they look great on the tag I made here.

I also had fun making a banner clip that the recipient can pull out and use on another project or a gift.

I hope you feel inspired to create your own pocket letter as a Christmas gift or for another occasion. They are a combination of two of my favorites: happy mail and pockets!

Enjoy the rest of the celebration here on the blog and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
