When it comes to making invitations unique and special, I find that it’s truly all about the details! Here’s a quick and easy way to spice up your invitations with something your guests won’t be expecting. We love this little idea from the DIY Bride… the idea is based around creating an adorable personalized photo version of the classic envelope liner. If you’re having a destination wedding you could include an image of your location like a beautiful sunset or beach. It’ll give your guests a little preview of what to expect!
- Take a sheet of heavy weighted cardstock and trace the outer edge of your envelope.
- Measure the width of the adhesive portion of your envelope flap and mark onto the cardstock. Use the envelope flap and your new marks to create a clean and even inner line.
- Make sure to follow the line down to the bottom of the template for an even border.
- Cut out your template and then trace and place your favorite photos or designs.
Envelope liners look classy and polished and are just as much functional as they are pretty. Liners are especially useful for when your envelopes are a little too thin and your invitations contrast with the paper. Adding that extra insert will ensure that only you and your guests will be able to see inside! Plus it doubles the durability of your envelopes in the mail.
