Thinner designer paper is a great choice for lining envelopes. Here are my steps for adding a lining:
- Cut your designer paper 1/8" narrower than the width of the envelope.
- 2. Measure the length of the flap from the fold to the start of the adhesive. Score the designer paper lightly that distance from the top edge.
- 3. Insert your designer paper into the envelope. Trim off any edges to make the DSP fit with the slope of the envelope flap.
- 4. Fold the paper down toward the back of the envelope. Apply adhesive to the top edge only. I like a tape runner adhesive for this purpose.
- 5. Fold the flap of the envelope down so you are securing the two papers together with the envelope closed. This will give you a good fit and prevent buckling.
A lined envelope is an extra touch of class for your cards.
