I want to use them but for some reason I am horribly intimidated by them – they look way above my level of crafting ability! If I do use them, though, I’ll probably just do the outer envelope.

I lined my outer envelopes only. I thought they were pretty flimsy paper, so that’s why I did it. I also think it was a nice touch to add some color.

I gave up on the outer envelope at the last minute b/c they were stressing me out.  I’d planned to only line the outer envelope since it would give it a little “pop” since the invitation would give the inner one a little “something special”.

@amanda.lynn: they are one of the easiest crafting projects you can take on. I started lining birthday card envelopes when I was a pre-teen, and I’m not exactly Martha. 😉 Just google “invitation envelope liners” and you should get a really good selection of templates and/or instructions.

Generally only the inner envelope is lined, since the outer envelope is a throw-away.

I’d only choose one to line… otherwise it’s SO MANY LINERS! Whether it’s between the inner or outer… that’s up to you!

i debated a lot, i think they’re so pretty, but in the end didn’t want to spend the time or money. good lord i’ve already spent so much money! especially for things that will just be thrown away.

I didnt use a liner but if I did I would use it on just the outer liner.  Thats what people will see first and doing both would be sooo much work!

Yes we used them. But we only had one envelope.

I did them, I used wrapping paper and glue dots and made my own template from cardboard. I only lined the inner envelope as I figured that would be the one people might keep to hold all the stuff together. It was a pretty easy project, a little time consuming (because I am a perfectionist) but cheap and easy.

Ok.  They are EASY to do and I’m a beginner at DIY stuff ok?

I went to Paper Source and they taught me in less than 5 minutes how to do it!

I cheated too.  I bought their envelope liners templates and IT ROCKS!  All you do is find the right size envelope template, get your liner paper, and trace it on the blank side of the paper with a pencil to see the outline.  Then cut it out and slide it in an envelope and glue down with either dots or the rolling adhesive thing and voila!  It’s done.

Here’s the liner (it’s supposed to be river trout) from my son’s birthday party invites I did recently:

They are FI´s favorite part in the invitations, but I just feel it´s so expensive to buy them already pre-cut! Almost as much as my pocketfolds!
