DIY: Personalized Envelope Lining

Sending snail mail is so much fun, I miss the days when you send letters to your friends and you purchase a stamp and wait days for them to receive it. From now on I want to make an effort to make cute little cards, letters and envelopes to send to my friends and family because it does really make a difference. The other day I sent a birthday card and personalized the envelope and it turned out pretty sweet, so I thought I would share with you guys how to create your own personalized envelope lining

What you need:

Print outs of your favorite photographs

  1. If you haven’t heard of the recycolopes at http://www.allnaturalme.com, I think everyone would love those. It’s basically using old magazines, or catalogs even, to make envelopes. You may need separate labels since the image on the paper might not be easy to write an address one, but it’s super fun to make your own and come up with different designs depending on the image on the page.

  2. Seven years ago, I lined all of the envelopes of the invitations to my daughter’s bat mitzvah. It wasn’t hard — and here’s a tip: you only need to glue the top edges of the lining paper to the envelope — not the whole liner! When you order custom invitations and pay extra for lined envelopes, they’re only glued at the top!
