This afternoon we are back with our regular feature ‘Advice from the Married Side,‘ real life wedding planning...
It’s DIY time again on the Blog, and todays DIY Tutorial comes from the lovely Laura from The Mrs Makes. Laura has been busy getting all her DIY projects completed before her wedding next April, so a couple of weeks ago Laura and the lovely Jess Petrie came round to my garden to put together a second set of DIY Tutorials for you.
I have loads of DIY tutorials coming up fo you from Laura one of which is her rather cute wedding invitations, to go along side these invitations she has been busy putting together her own envelopes with liners. So today she is showing us how to create your very own envelope liner……..and believe me it’s a lot simpler than I first thought, even I could do this one!
Step 1) Start off with a spare envelope. With your pencil and ruler draw a line about 1cm from each side, around the sticky bit you lick, and about 2cm below the opening.
Step 2) Using scissors or a knife cut this out – throw away the rest….
Step 3) So that you have a liner template!
Step 4) Now you can use this template to cut out your liners. I folded the tissue paper to cut out 10 at a time, but you might have to do one or two at a time if your paper is thicker.
Step 5) Take a liner and place inside one of your envelopes and glue it in.
Step 6) Voila! A slightly prettier envelope!
