The Pocket Letters are for two swaps I am in for a facebook group.  One is a black and white theme and the other was a favorite color swap.

I made pockets using my WRMK 1-2-3 Punch Board (you could use the envelope punch board.

  1.  cut your paper to 5″ square
  2.  Punch and score at 2 1/8″
  3. Rotate and line up score line, punch and score
  4. Repeat on remaining sides

For the mini envelope:

  1.  cut your paper to 3″ square
  2.  Punch and score at 1 3/8″
  3. Rotate and line up score line, punch and score
  4. Repeat on remaining sides

My homemade scraprack

I used 3 cottage brackets 13″ (also called 11″ x 13″ wood brackets

We had to cut a little off to make it stand flat

Then using 1″ screws we attached the brackets to a 16″ x36″ shelf

I covered the shelf with industrial strength Velcro. The first and last binders I used a 2″ d ring binder and left the back attached to serve as wings (the first one had to be placed upside down. The middle spinders actually belong to a scraprack as I got a really good deal on the expansion unit which included 8 spinsters.
