my creative space - envelope liners

envelope linersenvelope linersenvelope linersenvelope linersenvelope liners
It may seem like I haven't been making much around here, but I haven't been completely quiet on the creative front. As always I have lots of plans floating around my brain, and new/old designs being fiddled with, I'm hoping to get them sorted and share them here soon but in the meantime, here's a project I finished a while ago. Its another tutorial for Grant Studios using their beautiful papers to make personalised envelope liners.

This is such an easy quick project to fancy up your envelopes. It would be so perfect for wedding, birthday or party invitations, or thank you notes. And its simple enough for middle sized kids and up to make themselves.
This project would also be fantastic with hand-drawn inserts, or you could use photo prints, vintage wallpaper, wrapping paper, or blockprint some paper, or photocopies... the opportunities are endless to personalise this idea.

While I'm sure you can get the basic method from the photos there are a couple more steps so if you want the tutorial follow the link to the Grant site where you can download the pdf instructions.

(Oh and thank you so much to Megan, Leslie, Rosalie, Kylie, Julie, Justine and Annika who all signed up to Kiva, and between them made 12 loans. You're the best!)
