I have recently gotten into the hobby of penpaling. I was supposed to have only three, but now I have *ahem* seven.
Having a penpal (or more) Is an amazing way to make new friends and meet new people and learn about others lifestyles and cultures. Penpaling is also great for people that want to disconnect from online and go back to paper. Plus if you have really generous penpals you might even get goodies. (my favorite part) But don’t get your hopes up xD
So in today’s post, I will share with you guys a few things you can send to your penpals!
If you are looking for a penpal and have nowhere to look you can go to this awesome (and safe website) called globalpenfriends. Or you can comment down below that your interested and maybe someone else will reply and ask to be your penpal.
For right now I am closed for new penpals because I already have way tooo many. But I am open to being e-pals if you want.
But now, let’s get on to the post.
The first and most basic thing to put in your penpal letter is a letter.
Even if you only send a letter, you can jazz it up and make it cute and super special! Doodle, add quotes and use fancy fonts!
2. Send washi tape.
Washi tape is cute and adorable, and if your penpal is a crafty artsy person I am sure they would appreciate some. You can wrap it around a stick, tag or piece of paper.
Art pieces are really cute and simple. Draw something your penpal loves like ducks or sunflowers.
When it comes to penpaling, sending cute scraps of paper or extra washi and stuff Is great! You can use scraps to make collages and if your penpal is creative they will probably find a way to use it.
5. Candy, Tea, Snacks
Packaged objects like tea and candy are great and fun to send to your penpal. I always send my penpals tea bags so they can drink it while reading my letters!
6. envelope art
Envelopes can be transformed into beautiful masterpieces. I try and usually fail, but there are some really pretty things you can do!
7. Things your pen pals have mentioned
Has your penpal mentioned that they wanted pins? Maybe you can make one for them. Make thinks based on your penpals personality or things they like and want.
I hope this post helped! Thanks for reading!
