DIY: Lined Envelopes

Purchasing lined envelopes can really add up, but creating your own will really elevate your invitations to the next level all the while saving some money!


  • Envelopes
  • Paper to line the envelope
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Pencil


  • 2-5 Minutes per envelope


  • This was not very difficult, but did take some patience and precision.

First, you will want to trace the envelope to the piece of paper you will be using for the liner.

Next cut out the liner from your paper of choice. Once the envelope shape is cut you will want cut off a very small amount on either side of the paper. This will ensure that the liner can easily slide in your envelope. There is not need to measure this. Just a small sliver on each side will do the trick.

Slide the paper into your envelope.

Fold the flap down to create a crease.

Trim off any remaining liner paper that may appear once the envelope has been folded. Use your glue stick to glue down the top flap.

Now you’re envelope is complete! How cute and how simple.
