Adding a liner to an envelope can instantly transform it from blah to bright. Today, in addition to showing you how to make an envelope liner template, I’ll show you how I made a chevron thank you card with matching envelope.
For the envelope liner template:
I cut apart an envelope. (This is where one of the many envelopes we misaddressed while doing our save the dates would have come in handy.) I carefully cut off the part of the envelope around the flap that had adhesive.
To make the envelope liner template, I used:
- An envelope
- A pen
- A piece of light weight cardboard (from an old notebook)
For the watercolor chevron patterned paper:
I made a chevron template for my Silhouette Cameo. I used my Silhouette to cut the template out of freezer paper.
Used the envelope liner template, to cut out an liner. Glued the liner into an envelope.
Used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the letters for “THANK YOU” out of a piece of chevron paper. Glued the letters onto a piece of folded card stock.
I then used the envelope liner template to cut out my envelope liner and glued the liner into an envelope using a glue stick.
To make the chevron lined envelope and matching thank you card, I used:
- 1 envelope
- 1/2 of an 8″ x 11″ sheet card stock
- 1 piece of white resume paper
- Glue stick
- Freezer paper
- Chevron template (still unable to upload studio files, so here I’ve posted it as a pdf)
- Silhouette Cameo
- Blue and green watercolors
- Watercolor brush
- Envelope liner template
