To line the envelopes can I use text weight paper? I have not been able to find any cute wrapping paper styles with our colors so I was just going to use a solid paper. Any ideas? The invite will be ivory w/ chocolate backing and lilac and chocolate ink, with an ivory envelope.

You actually should use text-weight paper or lighter. Anything heavier would make the envelope really thick and hard to seal. Pretty colors! I used brown paper that felt like velvet to line my envelopes and got some great feedback on it (it cost a fortune to mail the envelopes because it made them so thick though). I got it at the Paper Presentation store in NYC, but I just did a quick google search and found some here: http://www.paperaddict.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=139
Paper Presentation also makes pre-cut envelope liners in a ton of colors for A7-sized envelopes!

I’m using text weight paper from paper source and it’s working well. I got large flat paper sheets for 60 cents each, and they are making about 9-10 liners/sheet.

Paper Source sells templates, though you could probably find them online as well or make your own by cutting down your envelope of choice.

I have the Paper Source templates and they are easy and great for Paper Source envelopes…If you have another company’s envelopes make your own template with a piece of poster board or an old folder…I lined all of my shower thank you’s with scrapbooking paper using a template I made.

cbkj, you can use scrapbooking paper (not the stiff card kind though). There are tutorials on wedding bee – search "DIY liners" – I’m also doing a post on mine pretty soon. You don’t need to buy a kit, it’s super easy – you just trace the top of the flap of your envelope onto a stiff piece of cardstock, then chop off some of the bottom (square) part so the whole thing becomes smaller than the original envelope. That makes your template.
