Cute Ideas For Pen Pals & Happy Mail

Posted on


Connecting with friends and family during this time has made us explore a lot of different options. With technology it is now easier than ever to reach out to loved ones. This is great for most people but if you are like me, being online does not feel like a fun place at the moment. What to do then when you want to say hi to people and share some love? Go old school and drop them a letter! I have always been a fan of written letters to people from an early age.

Here are some ideas on how to send out awesome letters and happy mail with stuff you have on hand. Thinking outside the envelope and experimenting with washi tape, hand made paper and flat gifts has never been easier!
