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:
patterned or coloured paper (I used chiyogami paper)
scrap paper for gluing
folding bone (optional)
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.
you can use either scissors or a craft knife to cut out the line.
measure 1.5 cm from the bottom of the liner and cut
insert the liner into the envelope
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.
once you apply the glue it’s a good idea to rub the surface with a folding bone or your fingers.
