Hello friends! You guys seemed to really like my last pen-pal post a while ago, so I decided to do another one, this time with some super special + unique ideas for your pen-pals!
Washi Tape Garland
I love this idea. Of course you could put the garland on the envelope, but what about putting it in the envelope? I love the idea of receiving a letter (especially for a birthday) with a pretty washi tape garland that I can hang at my desk and remember the friend that sent it to every time I sit down to do school/write/blog/work/etc.
Adult Coloring Book Envelope.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Don’t judge an envelope by it’s outside. Especially an envelope like this that has colored adult coloring book page as the inside. A handmade paper outer layer would be really cool too! 😀
Start by coloring a coloring page, or using one you already colored. 😉
I used my envelope maker (fancy, i know, my grandma got it for me and it’s handy) But if you don’t have an envelope maker, then just carefully take apart a regular envelope and trace it onto your color page.
You could also do this with a map – which would be super neat! 😀
Song Lyrics Postcard.
Have a favorite song that you share with your bestie/pen-pal. Or a good one you just found that you want to share with them? Well, just write the lyrics on the front of a piece card stock cut to the size of a postcard 4″ by 6″) and write the lyrics neatly on the front! 😀
This is always fun for a birthday! (not if you’re a germophobic, read on XD)
Then hold it (or twist it) in place and write with a sharpie your message. Let the sharpie dry for as long as possible. Otherwise, once the balloon shrinks the writing will smear.
Deflate the balloon and you’re finished!
I hope you guys enjoyed this! Would you like to see more pen-pal ideas in the future?
