Fold yourself some happy mail! In this swap you will write a one page letter on approximately 8.5" x 11" or A4 paper. Only write your letter on one side of the sheet! This will be just a quick penpal introduction.
Once your letter is written, follow these directions to fold your paper into its own envelope: https://www.instructables.com/Envelope-free-letter-sending-Snail-Mail-origami/

I recommend practicing this technique on spare paper to get the hang of it before you fold the letter you write.
You can add a bit of tape where the flaps fold under in order to secure it a bit more for mailing. Address the blank side, put $0.75 postage on it (for the US anyway), and send it on its way!
UPDATE per a question from carrotkate: if you know a different fold for this purpose, feel free to use it! The finished folded letter should be at least 3.5" x 5" in order to be eligible for sending through the mail.
This swap is international since postage will be cheap-ish, and it is newbie friendly. (Please have a thoroughly filled out profile so your partner can strike up a conversation about your interests.) Rate a five if you receive a letter that meets the requirements in a timely fashion. I am happy to angel, but please remember that the postal service is running way behind right now and allow plenty of time for delivery.
