15 Charming Ways to Send Mail!

I want to send more real letters! I definitely did better last year than in previous year. I wrote handwritten notes and managed to work my way through a stash of letterpress stationery. But the guilt of my Christmas card failure is catching up to me and I want to reach out to friends and family through snail mail. I got excited when I spotted some of these incredibly clever paper goods. Surprising someone with a paper crown card for their birthday or a frame worthy painted bird card is just a really lovely way to send a note. Check out more of my favorites, below.
