Add a little character to your envelope by lining the inside with scrapbook paper or wrapping paper. I ordered Riley’s DSC 1797 300x204 How to Line an Envelope with Scrapbook Paperbirthday invitations online (well I ordered the image and then had them printed) so I wanted to add a little something extra to make her invitation stand out. I am a huge fan of stationery and decorative paper, so I decided to line the envelope with some of the decorative scrapbook paper and wrapping paper that I had on hand. I wanted to line the envelope with decorative paper that went with the Minnie Mouse theme and matched the invitation, so I used a light pink and white polka dot. I thought it turned out very nice and really made the invitation pop. I added a Mickey/Minnie Mouse Head siloutte cut out to the center give it something special.

This didn’t take long at all to do and really does add a high quality look to a plain envelope, so if you’re like me and love stationery and send cards for any and every occassion then this is a great project to make your card stand out!!

Step 1: Lay your paper out and place the envelope on top of the paper

Step 3: Cut out the template making sure you cut along the inside of the pencil line. This will not only make it so you can’t see the outline but it will also make it so the cut out fits inside of the envelope. If it’s still a little to big to fit inside of the envelope cut the sides a little more and it should slide right in.
