Step 1 Print your liners using the Artful Life Designs printable PDF of your choice to match your size and style envelopes.

Trim Artful Life envelope liners

Step 2 Cut with X-actor and ruler. Then trim curved edge with scissors.

Insert Artful Life envelope liner into envelope

Step 3 Insert liner into envelope aligning top edge of liner to the glue edge on the envelope flap. (You don't want the liner to cover the glue.)

Fold envelope flap and liner

Step 4 Carefully fold the envelope flap down, keeping the liner in place as you fold.

Fold envelope flap up leaving liner folded down

Step 5 Lift the flap up, but keep the liner folded down.

Put adhesive strip on edge of envelope liner

Step 6 Using the adhesive tape dispenser to put a strip of adhesive along the top edge of the liner.

Tip: I highly recommend a glue tape dispenser if you have a lot of envelopes to do. I used the Glue Glider Pro that I purchased at my local craft shop. The strip of adhesive is about 1/4" wide which works very well when doing envelope liners.

Step 7 Make sure the liner is still in the correct position and carefully fold the envelope flap closed, pressing it firmly onto the liner.
