Add a decorative touch to your wedding invitations with customised DIY paper liners to reflect the style of your wedding. I love the idea of incorporating maps of your wedding location, photos personal to you, literature from an old romance novel, or anything at all connected to the theme / colour scheme of your wedding.
Below are instructions to create stylish, cost-effective wedding invitations using any type of paper as envelope liners.

Tracing the shape for the liner:
Lay your lining paper on a flat surface. Using one of your envelopes trace around the envelope ensuring that the top flap is open to get the basic shape of the envelope.
Then move the envelope down slightly and trace a second line around the “top flap” of the envelope. (This is to allow a small seam around the top of the envelope when we glue the liner in.) This is the line you will be cutting along.
Cutting out the liner:
Carefully cut around your marked area, remembering to cut along the second marker line you made around the top flap. (You can use shaped scissors to give a more decorative look.)
Gluing the liner:
Insert the liner into the envelope, flip down the top triangle and only use glue on this section. (if you put glue on the bottom area the envelope will not close properly).
