First up is this cute purple envelope design by @mochibujo I like the lettering of the recipient’s name and the layering of different elements such as scrapbook ephemera + washi tapes. It adds such depth and dimension to the design!

This envelope design by @catsplanner is so elegant! I love the use of the doily and the Hinoki wax seal sticker + frames to add some texture and layers. The more neutral colour scheme also adds such a beautiful vintage aesthetic to the envelope! I’d definitely be so happy receiving this.

The ribbon on this penpal mail by @lootengstudio is such a nice touch. It definitely makes the penpal mail more special and more exciting to open as it resembles a gift. I also like the calming palette and again the lettering of different stickers and washi tapes.

Red + pink is such a cute colour combination and I am loving this strawberry dreamland by @shan.jrnls! I love the simple yet bold lettering in the middle and the fun + funky layering of different shades of pink and red.


Another super cute way to make your penpal mails pop is by using coloured envelopes like this yellow one by and adding cute stickers. The pastel lettering of the recipient’s name is everything! Such a cute envelope!

I love the vibe of this envelope design by @penpakajsa with different layers of paper and ephemera. The blue accents make the envelope really stand out!
