- Wedding: July 2011
I am not a crafty person at all, but as I have a year to my wedding I have decided to try my hand at a few DIY projects. I figure that if I find that DIY is not for me, then I will have enough time to go a more generic route.
I thought it would be best to ease myself in by working on the envelopes for our Save The Dates. Last night I started off making envelope liners. It was remarkably easy, and will hopefully give me the confidence to push forward with other things.
I made the template for the liner from some cardstock. I followed Martha Stewarts instructions for creating the outline:http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/article/lining-envelopes because I am cheap and I didn’t want to buy a plastic template 🙂
Then I got some plain black envelopes from Paper Presentation. They also had some yellow wrapping paper which looked nice and bright, and at $5 for the roll, I couldn’t resist.
Then I traced the template and cut out the liners. I used scissors to cut out the liners, and a corner rounder to get the perfect round corner as suggested by Miss Lobster.
I used a Craft Stick from 3M to stick the liner down as I found this much beter than both glue sticks and roll on adhesive.
