How to Create Envelope Liners

It’s often the little touches that make things special. When it comes to invitations, holiday cards, and thank you notes, a plain envelop does the job, but an envelop lining makes it that much more special. Follow these simple instructions to dress up a birthday party invitation, a wedding invitation, or even just a note to a friend by creating a lined envelop.

1. You will need:

  • Patterned custom tissue paper that matches your theme
  • Plain envelopes
  • Double-sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

2 (a). Create a cutting template. Open the flap of an envelop. Cut the glue strip, and trim around 1/8″ off of the remaining 3 sides. This will be your tracing template for the size of the linings.
