Oh my obsession with stationery continues. I’ve designed invitations for a friend’s baby shower (the results of which I shall reveal after the invites have been mailed out so as not to ruin any surprises). While I wait for the printer to deliver the cards, I’ve been prepping the envelopes so I can drop them in the mail promptly.
I had a stack of scrap art paper, and purchased some inexpensive white notecard envelopes, and decided to DIY some liners for the envelopes, in between wiping up sick children’s puke. Yay!
I so adore the playful surprise of an envelope liner. In fact, my wedding invitation was lined with a paper that was embossed with our wedding date. It was such a subtle, lovely detail.
I think this simple DIY provides a similar taste of delight!
You cut the paper out using a template made from one of the envelopes. See animated GIF for how to cut the envelope to create the template!
Slide the paper liner inside the envelope…
Secure with a glue stick. Allow to dry…
Bam! Envelope surprise!
I am drowning in a sea of colorful envelopes. And I love it.
With the excess paper from cutting out the liners I created jumbo confetti using a circle punch. Yet another unexpected treat hidden inside the envelope!
