So after pouring through websites, and books, and magazines, you’ve finally picked your invitations (and, of course, they’re stunning), but maybe you want to give them that “little something extra.” Something that will just WOW your guests. Well, the answer may be envelope liners! They’re cheap. They’re easy. And they’re completely unique!

If you’re not the DIY type, you can purchase ready-made liners from companies like Enveloper Inc. and Paper Source, but I promise, as long as you can hold a pencil, you can make these.

They’re not 100% required, but I recommend using a template so you’re sure that all your liners will fit and be the same size. I use one I purchased from Paper Source. Always check the size of your envelope to the liner. A standard invitation size is A7, or 5″ by 7″. An A7 envelope will be 5.25″ by 7.25″. So you’re A7 liner template is designed to fit a 5.25″ by 7.25″ envelope.

In addition to a template, you’ll need scissors, a pencil, and double-stick tape (or glue).

Steps to Making your Own Wedding Invitation Envelope Liners

First, choose your paper, for this project I’m going to use some old ledger paper I had. Then, line up your template and trace it onto the back (if there is a back) of the paper.

Fold the top part down and add a little permanent double-stick tape. Scrapbooking tape, tape runners and glue sticks also work well.

Think about your colors and theme. Maybe you want something more summery.

You can also use paper punches to add a decorative element. I bought this Martha Stewart one from my local craft store (on sale!)

You’ll still be able to seal them since the punch will leave plenty of the glue.

Get creative with it! And if you use recycled paper, it’s a great way to add an environmentally-friendly touch to your invitations!
