Panda Theme Pocket Letter


I am so excited to share with you my new project.  Have you heard of Pocket Letters?  What a fun way for crafters to have pen pals.  I simply love this idea.  If you would like to learn about pocket letters please check out the original creator HERE.
The new challenge at Aud Sentiments is sponsored by Imagine That by Kris.  The theme for the challenge is to create a project with an animal and of course and appropriate sentiment.  I used several items from their Panda set.  
 Here is the front of my pocket letter.  This will be a birthday gift for my niece who loves Pandas. I put a pocket tag in the middle pocket.  Inside will be a little note for my niece which lists several of my favorites such as song, book, etc
Items used:
Happy Birthday flag: La La Land 
Pandas: Imagine That by Kris
Balloons, banner, candles, heart tag: Magnolia Doo Hickey Dies
Hearts: Spellbinders
I love Pandas: Imagine that by Kris
Pocket Tag: Tags, bags boxes and more Cricut cartridge
Martha Stewart border punch
Papers from Panda set used are the green and black plaid, panda foot prints
Here is the back side of the pocket letter.  Since this is a gift for my niece, I decided to decorate all of the pockets instead of including little gifts in each.  I did put another pocket tag in the middle pocket.  This one holds a gift card so she can do a little shopping of her own. (Sorry for glare on one of pockets)

Items used:
Pandas from Imagine That by Kris
balloons, gifts, banner, label and bamboo dies from Magnolia Doo Hickey dies
Martha Stewart heart border punch
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Have Beary Best Birthday sentiment from Panda set from Imagine That by Kris

I folded the pocket letter and tied it with some fun ribbons.  Inside the envelope is a not for my niece explaining about pocket letters.

Items Used:
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Aubri cut from Ashley's Alphabet Cricut cartridge
