Wedding Paper, Part III

Okay, so I like many brides spend countless hours dreaming of lofty pinspired DIY projects.  More often than not I have fallen prey to how simple these project seem.  I march into the local craft store with all this enthusiasm and excitement to only end up frustrated and with at least $50 missing from my checking account.  I’m pretty sure the future husband is real close to demanding a cease fire on all the DIY, but he has been pretty awesome and supportive through it all so far (which is one of the million reasons I love him so much).

Most recently, the DIY du jour was the DIY envelope liners that I alluded to last week here.  Lucky for us this DIY was not only super simple but, it ended up being a fun project for the two of us.  Here’s how we did it:

1. Get the goods. You will need: the right size envelope liner template (love these from Paper Source), patterned paper of your choice (1 sheet per envelope), a pen, a pair of scissors, double sided tape.  If you gather all your supplies in advance, you will save yourself a lot of time.  Double check that you have enough patterned paper for all of your envelopes, so you don’t have to pause mid-project.  A lesson we had to learn the hard way because we ran out, not fun.

2. Trace the appropriate envelope liner template depending on the size of your envelopes onto each back side of the sheet of patterned paper.  Or, if you are feeling brave stack a few up.  We did like 4 at a time and it worked out just fine and saved us a lot of time.

3. Use your scissors to cut out the envelope liners.

4. Once you have all the envelope liners cut out place each one inside the envelope and fold the flap down to crease the envelope liner.

5. Remove the liner from the envelope and place your double sided tape on the top of each side of the rectangle portion and then on the sides of the triangle portion as well as on the rounded tip. Smooth to secure. Repeat on all of your envelopes.

Stand back and look at the beauty that is your envelopes! Enjoy!
