Default Lining envelopes....

Hi everyone!

I found a good deal on envelopes ~ they're pretty, but not real thick so I want to line them with dp paper to match the cards. What do you all use for an adhesive? Red line tape? Tape runner? Mono glue? I'm not even sure how to go about it ~ I know I saw a blog explaining how to do this but now of course I can't remember which one. Do you just line the "main" side, or both sides? Anyone have pics they can share? TIA!!

Let's see if I can describe what I did. I made myself a template out of thin cardboard that fit inside the opened envelope and covered just inside the glued flap (I didn't want to cover the glue). Can you picture this?

I cut out my DSP using my template. I stuck the DSP into the envelope - right side out and attached it only along the top edge of the flap portion using mono adhesive (a glue stick would work well or anything that goes on thin - just so it won't show through on either side). Once the DSP was attached, I carefully folded the flap (and DSP) over making the crease. You shouldn't need any addition glue - cards should go in and come out without disturbing the DSP.

I use liner templates I've purchased depending on the size and type of envelope I'm using. Usually I make my own envelopes (from templates). I line the flap just short of the glue line but also the liner goes all the way down to the bottom of the envelope. There is no liner on the back of the envelope unless the envelope paper is really thin and I want more substance.

Thank you ladies ~ doesn't sound too hard. I do want to try to make my own envelopes eventually, but will just have to do this for now.

I have the same set of templates. They are great! They are made of thin plastic so they don't wear from use (or ever use in my case) and they fit perfectly every time. The plastic is also transparent so you can see the pattern through them if you are trying to get a particular part of a pattern centered or something. I highly recommend them.http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/...cm_id=2510.050

Thanks for that link!! I did line some last night ~ a few with pattern paper & a few with just card stock. I had stamped on the plain card stock of one, to see how it would look, & I ended up redoing it. Didn't look so hot. The plain card stock looks fine since it matches the card, & makes the envelope not so flimsy.

I really do want to make my own envelopes ~ I think for now the best way to do that is to just take an envelope apart & trace. Won't be fancy, but it will be handmade

Also they sell glue (non-toxic) especially made to dry and re-moisten and glues the envelope closed. I have some I bought several years ago and it still works great. The name of the product is called "Lick & Stick" (I know terrible.. but it gets the point acrossed)

Hi ladies -- lots of good advice. I just wanted to add that I don't bother buying templates cause there are too many different envelopes out there. I just trace around the outside of my envelope on the DP, then trim just a little off each side so it slides easily. I also trim enough off the bottom (the part that goes inside) to make sure the glue strip isn't covered. Slide it in, tack it along the top (flap) edge with a glue stick, and it looks pretty good! Geez, this sounded better in my head -- hope it makes sense. TTFN

Yes, once I actually did it, it wasn't that hard & it turned out pretty nice. It was just one of those things I'd never tried & wasn't sure about how to do it or how much to line. The little extra pays off because it looks so much nicer, & turns cheap, flimsy envelopes into nice, thick, pretty ones

I make my own template by tracing also and glue only the top with my ATG gun. I use alot of the designer papers that you can buy in stacks at Michaels when they go on sale for half off. The papers are thin and work well in the envelopes.

Half the time I don't use a template, just trace a pattern and adjust after cutting. I use ATG right below the gummed paper line, but don't use it below the crease. The liner will flex when folded and needs the freedom to adjust. Too much adhesive will be a problem.
