- Wedding: June 2012
First, let me say this is my first DIY upload, so I apologize if it doesn’t come out very well!
I love pictures!!! I am incorporating pictures in a lot of our wedding. I made these liners for our invitations using our engagement pictures (but you could use whatever pictures you like). I just did it through word by selecting my margins to match the width of my envelopes and the height between the gumming on the envelope seal and just below the flap of the envelope, then inserted the pictures one after another so there was no space between them, and printed them on vellum paper (also works on just plain paper) and cut apart the liner strips.
Then I placed the liner strips on the desired area, with the top of the liners meeting the gummed envelope lining. I turned the envelope over and traced the shape of the envelope flap onto the back of the liner strips with a pencil, and cut along that line so the liners would exactly match the shape of the envelope flap. My flaps had a slight curve to them, but if yours are exactly straight, you could maybe skip this step! If you are using a v-flap, you could use one picture printed to a larger size instead of several small ones, and use this same method.
Once the strips matched the shape of the envelope flap, I folded the envelope and strip down just as you would when you seal them. I found that this helped the liners stay flatter. Then just affix with either Elmer’s glue, double stick tape, or glue dots! It can take a couple of tries to get the method that works best for you. Be sure to flatten the liner the best you can after you adhere it. If you are using glue, you can get a little time to straighten it out before the glue dries. Enjoy!
