This diy envelope liner tutorial from the crew at Ellinee.com got me thinking about Christmas cards and how I’m going to pretty them all up with a personalised liner this year (and yes, this is a public commitment to send out Christmas cards…!).
But then I realised that I had an opportunity to try this diy out sooner… my Sister and Nieces’ birthdays!
As soon as I printed out one of the liners, I realised that they were a different shape to the envelopes I use and that I would need to create my own. Not having the skills to do this on the computer, I decided instead to
make a cardboard template that I can use over and over again
(and use up some of the pretty papers that I’ve hoarded over the years in the process.)
Now that I’ve had a practice I’m definitely going to be doing this to all of my Christmas cards this year!
