Oh my gosh, you guys, thank you a million times for all the kind
Your heartfelt excitement for us is so amazing, thank you!!
This is one of those super easy - super quick - super inexpensive diys I love!
I've had this on my list for awhile, and thought to do it when I was sending out
thank you notes recently.
Pretty lined envelopes add that extra bit of flair to ordinary stationery and it gives
them some extra weight for a higher end feel, too.
I found the pink and orange note cards at Homegoods and used coordinating gold and
white wrapping paper for the liners, and scrapbook paper with these more masculine cards
I found at Target for Detail Boy.
Yep, I'm that mom that insists on sending a formal thank you note.
The super easy instructions:
1) Align the envelope on your paper and trace around the outside.
2) Cut out the liner template, trimming just inside the edges on the side,
and trimming 1/2" off the bottom, this allows the liner to fit just below the
glue on the envelope.
3) Slide the liner into the envelope
4) Fold the liner down, creasing and glue the backside to the envelope.
It took me longer to write these instructions than do an envelope!
Of course, the fun part is checking your wrapping paper and scrapbook stash
and coming up with cute combinations.
I almost forgot, when I mentioned to my friend I was making these she said her
goal was to take a few hours to purchase/organize birthday cards for the entire year.
She puts a sticky note on it with the greeting she'll be writing, it's her way of
making it easy to send them out. Wow, to be that organized!!
Do you have any awesome system to share?
