So, you’ve traced and cut…and cut some more! Now you’re ready to do the actual lining of the envelopes. This is a pretty painless process…it takes awhile, but if you pop in a good movie or show to watch, the time goes by pretty fast. I actually got so engrossed in working on them that I did all 150 straight through, with no break. Here’s how to do it:
After cutting, you’ll have a stack of envelope liners, like above. I actually have two stacks because I ran out of one type of paper, so I switched to my back-up paper for the remainder of the liners. They both harken to the dots in our design and match really well, so I wasn’t too concerned that they were different designs.
Insert your liner into the envelope, and crease where the fold of the envelope is. You could use a bone folder, but I found my finger worked just fine! I also found that I had to trim the edges of my liners a little bit—you can see all the trimmings up there in the corner! It just helped them lay flat in the envelope a bit better.
Once you’ve creased, fold the liner over and apply your adhesive. I used a regular ol’ glue stick. It worked like a charm!
Stay tuned for the big reveal—we are hoping to send these out at the end of this week!
