There are few things, in my mind, as fun as opening up the mailbox to see a letter just for you! You can ask my husband, I actually have a very odd obsession with checking the mail. There's just something about seeing an envelope that isn't a bill or junk mail! Especially when the letter is fun and colorful or even a wedding invitation! Yay!
I was so thrilled when a friend of mine came over to work on some wedding invite details with me! We decided to do some DIY watercolor liners for her envelopes. I love this kind of DIY because you can use it for any envelope and any kind of letter under the sun.
We started by watercoloring simple craft paper that comes in a roll.
It doesn't matter if the strokes aren't perfect, because you're going to be cutting the paper way down to make your liners.
Once your paint is completely dry, turn the paper over and trace your liner template. I got mine from paper source when I was doing my own wedding invitations. I've used them over and over again since!
Cut those babies out and viola! They are done!
We glued just the top triangle part of the liner into the card. This way, when you open it, if the bottom pulls a tad it's no biggie.
And here is why I loooove liners!
Ah, I'm in love!!
