Creating your own envelope liners is an easy way to really elevate your card making. Not only does it make the envelope feel nice and sturdy, but it also gives a "wow" factor when you open the envelope! Today we are going to show you how to create a liner template for any size envelope!
To get started, we are going to choose some patterned papers to go with the envelopes we are lining. We chose envelopes in the colors Parcel Wrap, True White, Paver Red, Brown Box Kraft, and Whip Cream.
Take a sheet of white cardstock and trace your envelope onto the sheet.
Measure the top of your envelope where the sealing strip is so that you can be sure your liner will sit below the sealing glue.
Using that measurement, draw a line across the top of your liner template.
Then measure 1/4" from the left and right side of your envelope and draw a line on each side.
Next, measure 1/4" on the diagonal sections at the top and draw a line.
Cut out your template with scissors.
Check to make sure your template fits in your envelope.
Now trace your liner template onto the back of a piece of patterned paper. Do not worry if your lines aren't perfect. No one will see them once you are done.
Cut your liner out around the lines you traced.
Add a strip of adhesive to the very top of the envelope liner. Since the rest of the liner will sit inside the envelope, there is no need to glue the sides of the liner. Gluing it at the top only will allow it to sit securely, but still fold properly when you close the envelope.
Insert the liner with adhesive into the envelope and line it up just below where the glue strip is.

Just that easy! Look how beautiful these envelopes are with their new flair! Now just add a card and send it off in the post to make someone's day!
To make things easier, we created a template for each envelope size we carry so we can have them on hand anytime we want to line an envelope.
