100 (Flat) Things To Send To Your Penpals

100 (Flat) Things To Send To Your Penpals | Uncustomary

So you’ve got your letter written, full of interesting things for your penpal. Before you seal the envelope, you might want to consider throwing in a little extra something! You might call it an extra, a fold-in, an enclosure, a goody, it doesn’t matter. The idea is you’re including a small gift for your penpal to let them know you care about them!

Postage can be expensive, so I wanted to create a list of things that are relatively flat you could include with your letter that won’t up the price of sending your letter very much. Below, you’ll find a list of 100 flat things you can send to your penpals, and after that I have a surprise for you!
