Envelope Liner Project – by Arounna Khounnoraj

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:


glue stick

scissors/craft knife



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.

step two:

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

step four:

insert the liner into the envelope

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 six:

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

All done!
