Ha!  I have never seen that before!  I think it is a pretty neat idea, but I just have one thought…if your guests use a letter opener (or even their hand) to open the envelope at the crease, they will be ripping right through your faces.    Is there an option to do it with two rows of smaller pictures?  If you could sort of "tile" several smaller pictures together, you could position it so that one row of pictures falls below the crease, and the next row of pictures falls above the crease.  Does that make sense?

Good thinking Linzella ๐Ÿ˜€ 

@ Treasure: It’s obviously up to you, but I’m not sure you *need* an envelope liner on those since it’s a square (and relatively shallow) flap. Have you thought about attaching a "moo sticker" to hold the flap closed as a means to attach your photo? Or putting one of your photos as a "moo card" (ie: business card-sized photo) Just a thought incase your printing doesn’t work out.. It’s a cute idea though!

Here is the link to the moo stickers ($9.99/90 stickers): http://www.moo.com/products/stickers.php

I am in the process of lining our envelopes- lesson learned from the Save The Dates- try not to cover the envelope seal- and if you do (like if the envelope inside color is different from the outside so the liner has to cover it all- make sure your glue is not too strong.  I used permanent glue dots and it was too strong and people had to rip the envelopes to open them ๐Ÿ™  Lesson learned and for our envelopes we makes sure our liners did not cover the envelope seal.

We are DIYing our own liners and it’s a tough job (we are doing 300 envelopes). Actually any DIY is tough. But I am a stickler for pretty invites so I am biting my tongue and roughing it through!! ๐Ÿ™‚
