I love sending cards in the mail for pretty much any occasion. One of my favorite ways to dress up an envelope is a liner! Instead of buying the pre-cut bulk liners from an online vendor, next time just do it yourself! It’s super simple and takes very little time. Here are the step by step instructions.
Envelope to Line
Extra Envelope for Template
Patterned Paper for Liner (or Print Your Own)
Pair of Scissors (or Exacto Knife + Self-Healing Cutting Mat)
Step 1: Pick the envelope you want to line! Grab an extra one for the template.
Step 2: Unfold and tear open the envelope.
Step 3: Cut off the outer flaps of the template envelope only leaving the top flap.
Step 4: Trace the template you’ve created on the patterned paper you will be using for the liner.
Step 5: Cut out the traced shape! In order to fit the liner inside the envelope, cut about an 1/8 of an inch inside the line.
Step 6: Fit the cut out liner inside the envelope. Then, use your ruler and bone fold to create a crease along the bending point of the envelope.
Step 7: To reinforce the crease, fold over the top envelope flap.
Step 8: Grab your glue stick and adhere the top flap of the envelope with the top flap of the liner.
Step 9: Ta-Da! You have an envelope liner! Now, go make someone’s day and send them a little snail mail!
