Envelope Liner Project – by Arounna Khounnoraj

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Another guest appearance by Arounna Khounnoraj of bookhou.

This project is a wonderful way to add a little special touch to your envelopes – The Paper Place has so many papers, from solids to patterns, to choose from that would be ideal for this project.

what you will need

what you will need

what you will need:

envelopes

glue stick

scissors/craft knife

ruler

pencil

cutting mat

patterned or coloured paper (I used chiyogami paper)

scrap paper for gluing

folding bone (optional)

step one:

I flip over the paper and trace the envelope on the back side – if you are doing multiple liners you can get a larger sheet – TPP sells their papers in both full size sheets as well as small cut pieces which are great if you want variety.

step1

step 1

step two:

you can use either scissors or a craft knife to cut out the line.

step 2

step 2

step three:

measure 1.5 cm from the bottom of the liner and cut

step 3

step 3

step four:

insert the liner into the envelope

step 4

step five:

use a folding bone to fold down the liner flap and apply glue – you can use a scrap piece of paper to put underneath so that you don’t get glue on your envelope.

step 5

step 5

step six:

once you apply the glue it’s a good idea to rub the surface with a folding bone or your fingers.

All done!
