diy Watercolor Envelope Liners

 

Step 1: You will need …

  • Envelopes
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Glue dots
  • Scissors
  • Paint (plus water for thinning, if needed)
  • Paintbrush

Step 2: Trace the envelope on the liner paper. Offset the envelope slightly below the initial tracing.  This should be about a 1/2-inch internal margin to the tracing of the top flap. Trace the top flap. Now, create 1/8-inch internal margins on the right and left sides of the liner. Trace the sides of the envelope.

Step 3: Cut the shape out using the internal margins.

Step 4: Paint the liners however you’d like.

Step 5: When your liners are fully dry, insert the liners into the envelopes and fold the liner to match the envelope fold. Use glue dots to adhere the liner to the envelope.

Step 6: TADAAA !
