I’m curious how long and how much money doing envelope liners cost you….
I think I’m at about 80-85 envelopes…(A7 size)…. and was trying to figure out about how long it would take (never done them before) and about how much it would cost.

i used 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper and cut out 3 liners per page. i got the scrapbook paper on sale for 25¢ a piece at JoAnn Fabrics. I spent about $8 total on them (for 92 invites) and only a half hour tracing and cutting them out. it was easy compared to the rest of my invitation suite stuff.

I got my paper for 3 dollars and I bought a template for about a dollar, all on clearance at HobbyLobby.

It’s low cost almost regardless of the paper you use, and high on visual impact. It’s not terribly labor intensive. Spend your time making a good template, trace, cut, and glue. For that many it’ll probably take you several hours, well worth it.
I used wrapping paper (sparkle wrapping paper!) from Paper Source. You can do it using almost any paper out there, so get creative!

You could also buy a roll of wrapping paper for under $5 and do it. I think the most costly thing would be paying the $10-15 for the envelope tracer. They have stencils for different sized envelopes. Good luck!

Paper Source has an envelope liner template set for various sizes of envelopes for about $11. Envelope liners will be one of the easiest things you’ll be making.

thanks, everyone! for some reason I thought this would take oodles and oodles of time and $$ on paper.
What kind of glue did you find works best??

I just tried one for the first time yesterday and it came out fabulously. I didn’t bother buying a template, I made it following Martha Stewart’s instructions here: http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/article/lining-envelopes
I bought the envelopes and wrapping paper from Paper Presentation. I made 50, and it didn’t take long at all.
