Hi Bees, i’m currently putting together my envelopes and I’m wondering if my liners are too small. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I literally have no idea. It looked okay at first, but now I feel like there’s a big gap on the sides where I think the liner should extend to. Is the liner supposed to be wide enough to go all the way out to the inside edges of the envelope? Are they too small? Am I doing this wrong? Or maybe, I’m just driving myself nuts over nothing….
Here is what a completed one looks like:
This is how wide the liner is compared to the envelope:
And then there’s this odd gap on the outside edges:
ETA: This is what it looks like on the inside with the gap:

Yes I think that they are exactly the right size. No one is going to open up the envelope and think that they’re too small 🙂 lol

Thank you all! I really appreciate it–I tend to get carried away with stupid details like this and since I’ve never even attempted anything semi-DIY before, I’m convinced I’m doing it wrong lol.

I think that’s actually how they’re supposed to be. I’ve always seen them with that gap, and it looks way better than the pic with the liner going all the way to the edges. They look great 🙂

FYI – I think the gap has to be there because there has to be a gap for where the “glue” would be on the envelope – you know, the sticky edge you would lick? It just doesn’t look right if the liner goes all the way to the edge of the envelope. And there’s no way to do that if it goes all the way to the edge on the inside part of the envelope. I hope I’m making sense lol

@PrincessBride27: Please don’t drive yourself nuts! (I’ve had to check myself a few times on this “not going nuts about nothing” item too!..maybe all brides go through it at some point.lol) I think they look great! Please finish, put together, and send off your lovely invites!

Haha i would have never known! Thanks!
I think I know what you’re saying lol thanks!
Hahah yep, that’s been me with almost every wedding decision so far. Which is just one reason why I joined the Bee so I ask whether I’m freaking out over nothing (which is ususally the case). And thank you!
haha very very true. I need to keep reminding myself of that! Thank you!

@PrincessBride27: I think they look perfect and are supposed to be like that.

No, I think that’s pretty much how they look. That’s exactly how mine looked, at any rate.
