It's National Letter Writing month and a great way to personalize all those special envelopes you will be sending out this April is to make and decorate your own liners! Writing a letter to your cat niece (which I may or may not be doing)? Use the Meow Banner! How about to your best friend on the other side of the country letting her know you are thinking of her? The Happy Teacup is always looking to send love to someone!
The two envelopes I will be using are the A7 Euro flap (with the deep V) and the A2 Wallet flap (squared off, no V). A7 and A2 refer to the size of the envelope. A7 envelopes are 5 1/4 x 7 1/4 inches and A2 is 4 3/8 x 5 3/4 inches.
First download and print one of my envelope liner templates I made just for you. (Euro Flap A2 & A7 - Wallet Flap A2 & A7) You can either use this template as your liner or cut it out and use it to trace onto your desired paper.
Stamp all over your paper, decorating the liner for your special recipient!
Cut out your liner, being sure to not leave any of the template marks.
Insert the liner into the envelope; fold the flap to crease. Then lift the flap, keeping the liner folded, and apply only a couple dots of glue around the liner edge. You don't need much to hold it in. And too much glue will make your paper wet and ripple.
Fold down the envelope flap onto the liner, rubbing to smoothly adhere. And you are done!
Happy Stamping and Letter Writing!
