This is a great DIY Party Planning Tip. Parties begin with an invitation. The invitation sets the mood and tone for the party so you want to make sure you make a good first impression! If it is an invitation you made, had printed or even pre-printed invitations you fill in yourself, step up the presentation and impress your guests. Lining the envelope with a scrap of pretty patterned paper is a small detail that will make a memorable impression. It’s easy to do with just a few supplies! In fact you literally can use your “leftovers” and no one will ever know! You can pick up supplies at your local dollar store or craft store.
How To Line Envelopes:
Patterned or colored paper
Paper trimmer or scissors
Step 1: Hold your piece of scrap paper up to the envelope with the flap open to see how wide you will want to cut the liner. Make sure you hold the liner below the glue line of the envelope.
Step 2: Mark with a pencil where you will cut the liner. Also make sure the liner is inside the envelope but it does not have to go all the way to the bottom. You don’t want it to be too short.
Step 3: With your paper trimmer, cut your liner to fit inside the envelope.
Step 4: Place the liner inside the envelope and fold over and crease firmly the envelope flap.
Step 5: Run a line of adhesive on the liner to hold in in place. Or you can use a glue stick if you don’t have adhesive.
This is a great way to spruce up your invitations for any occasion. I love how people get the impression that you spent a lot of money on custom invitations when in reality you didn’t spend a dime. Be sure to give this party tip a chance. I bet the next time you send invitations you will get many complements.
