I am obsessed. I don’t know why — I mean, will anyone really even notice?! It doesn’t matter. I have to have them.
Anyways, I am going to attempt to DIY my invites, but has anyone DIY’d their envelope liners?
Any tips on doing this? I wouldn’t even know where to start. Paper Source sells pre-cut liners, but they are so expensive!! They also sell an envelope liner kit for like $11, but would I ever use it for anything other than the wedding invites? Does it even work?

cardsandpockets.com will print, cut, and mount your liners for not too much.
they’re pretty easy to diy. you just need to figure out the right shape and size, so you can get the template from paper source or just measure on your own.

We spent $5 for the paper (scrapbook paper on sale at JoAnn’s) and $7 for the tape roller. I made the template myself (used the envelope itself, traced and cut it onto a hard thing, which was a plastic folder). It was the cheapest DIY project so far and was fairly easy. Lots of tutorials out there – one of the Bees just did one!

Yea I just spent a retarded amount of time searching DIY liner info. I think I can handle this one!!
For those that used them… Did you seal the envelope? One post I read said to just use a sticker instead of fully sealing so guests won’t use an envelope cutter and ruin the liner. But I worry about the sticker come off while in transit?

OMG, it is SOOO easy to make them yourself, i do it for every card i send. carefully, take your envelopes apart. from the opened envelope, trace on the inside where your liner would need to go. cut that out and tract it onto something thicker (i use cardboard).
choose your liner – check out a scrapbooking store for some pretty patterend paper, or places like Paper Source for pretty solids. trace around the template you made of cardboard and cut out. ta da!
when you glue them in, you only need to glue onto the flap part, not further down or when you close the envelope, it gets all rumpled.
PM me if you need more help!
