TIPsy Tuesday - Lining Envelopes

Thinner designer paper is a great choice for lining envelopes. Here are my steps for adding a lining:
  1. Cut your designer paper 1/8" narrower than the width of the envelope.

  2. 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. 3. Insert your designer paper into the envelope. Trim off any edges to make the DSP fit with the slope of the envelope flap.

    1. 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.

    2. 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.
