I ❤️ Travel Happy Mail + Video | with Nathalie

Hello I am back today to share another example of happy mail that could brighten someone's day. I grabbed the awesome I❤️Travel collection because I wanted to place all my goodies into a suitcase and develop my inserts on that theme.
I first created the suitcase itself by following this tutorial on You Tube, with a few variations (like the buckles that I hand cut). But the most fun was making the goodies that I was sending in it including the smallest pocket letter ever!
I started with a little booklet in which I put the cut apart postcards from the 12x12 Wish You Were Here paper. I also hand cut and strung several mini banners placing them into a small package I made for them. Finally, my favorite, I created a miniature pocket letter that fits perfectly into the suitcase.
It barely measures 3x4 inches and I will show you how you can create one too.
You will need a pocket page protector with a 3x4 pocket that you can cut. I had a leftover piece that worked perfectly. You can then cut little "cards" measuring 3/4"x1 1/8"to place in it. The next step is to design your pocket letter, first on top on the pocket, so you will know what will go inside and what will be adhered on top.
I used a mix of Mini Icons stickers, Doodle pop, Sprinkles, paper, twine and sequins. You first have to start with the bottom row which you will seal with a fuse tool. If you do not have one, you can also use a sewing machine.
The next step is to fuse the vertical lines before doing the last horizontal one. Spread things evenly before sealing and be careful not to shift things too much as you do.
To finish, decorate the top of the tiny pockets. You can add a little twine tassel if you'd like.
Isn't this the tiniest pocket letter you have ever seen?
