Envelope Liner How-to

I had never heard of envelope liners, until I started reading Weddingbee. I have seen many Bee's make there own and I have to say, I'm in love. I think they are so fun, it's like a little added surprise when you open the mail. When I decided to make Sister Newport's thank you cards, I really wanted to make them special by including enevelope liners.

It was my first time making them and I'm so happy with the result!

Here are the steps to making them:

Step 1: Trace paper using a template from the Paper Source envelope liner template kit. You can make your own, but I liked that this was easier.

Step 2: Cut out the liner.

Step 3: Emboss the liner (This can be done before or after cutting out the liner, I found it easier this way). *See directions here on embossing. * This step isn't necessary if you have a fun printed paper, but I really wanted to have the embossed paper to add a little something extra.

Step 4: Affix liner to envelope. I used gluesticks, but you could also use double sided tape.
And that's how it's done! What do you think? Have you made your own envelope liners before? Do you think it's worth the time spent making them?
