It depends on what you have in the envelope. I use a lot of these to ship my jewelry and the weight can be 2 to 3 ounces depending on the weight of the piece and the included paperwork I enclose. Usually it's 2 ounces. You might want to get a small postal scale to weigh your packages. Wal Mart has them and you can also get one through USPS.com

Some of my necklaces run 3 oz - and most of the time I can fit 2 items in an envelope. My suggestion would be to invest in a small postage scale. You can also make one trip to the post office and use their free scale (you know- the do-it-yourself postal center but don't complete the transaction) to find an average of what your items would weigh for shipping. I picked a slow night and took a couple of samples in to weigh them out accurately. This will ensure you're paying enough postage and your customer doesn't wind up having to pay something on their side when they get their goodies :)
