I am totally craft-challenged but I bought a pretty plain invitation suite and I’m trying to find ways to jazz it up. Our colors are black, white and yellow so I was thinking of somehow adding a yellow envelope liner to the outer envelope but I am at a loss on how to even begin doing it. Please help! Thanks so much!!

Definitely check out Martha Stewart blogs or in Michael’s there is one of her books & it tells you how to do a fabric booklet for invitations – that might be a good place to start – I just snapped pics of it with my iphone & didnt have to buy the book.
Start with fabric of card stock – doesnt have to go all the way in the envelope but at least half way down. Good lcuk!
Sorry I havent tackled this DIY yet but its on the long list. LOL!

I am not crafty at all but this I can help with! Have you seen the envelope liner kit from paper source? I suggest you get one of them if they fit your envelopes. Trace and cut – super easy!
If the kit doesn’t fit your envelopes, search on here for some instructions on how to create your own template. It’s pretty easy actually. You basically take apart your envelope so you can trace a template onto a peice of cardboard.
And then order fun paper. This is my fav paper site b/c you can search by color. They have a Huge selection.
I’m sure other bees have more detailed instructions but hopefully I’m pointing you in the right direction!

Ooo! I can definitely help you! I’m lining all of my envelopes as well! Its very easy to do. Do you have a store called Paper Source there? If not, you can go to their website. All you need to do is buy their envelope liner template kit for $9.50 and it has a template for every size envelope in there. You’ll need to check that one of them will work with your envelopes though. I’m using Paper Source envelopes so they definitely work for me. I’m using their A9 envelopes which will fit my 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 invitations. They have smaller sizes to choose from too.
Then just choose your decorative paper (you can use wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, etc) and all you do is turn the paper over so the design or color you want to show is on the bottom, put the template on top, trace it, cut it out, and then stick it in your envelope and glue the sides on the top (the flap). Here’s a link to the template kit: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/item/envelope-liner-template-kit/2950.401/40712906.html
It even has a little demo video. Definitely very easy to do and makes your envelopes pop!
