I'm a calligrapher and I regularly make envelope liners. I strongly recommend first inserting the liners with no glue or tape, then while holding the liner firmly on the flap, close the envelope flap and crease the fold. Lift the envelope flap only, leaving the liner folded down and apply double stick tape to the liner and then fold the envelope flap back down and press to adhere the tape. This allows the liner inside the envelopeto move when the flap is moved and avoids weird puckers.

This looks so simple and fun. I love mailing out cards and letters and try to send 5 out to friends and family every week. Because who loves getting something in the mail that isn't a bill, amiright?

I love this idea, I have always decorated the outside of my letters and boxes, to brighten the day of both the deliverer and the recipient.

These envelopes are gorgeous! I'm trying to write at least one handwritten letter every week, and am running out of stationary. This is a lovely, DIY alternative to buying expensive note cards. Thanks!

I made envelopes for wedding invitations this way. They were gorgeous. I used a glue stick on the liners and it worked perfectly.

Such an artistic and clever way to embellish a simple envelope! What a beautiful idea.

Just the kind of wow effect that would make my day had I the pleasure of receiving such a lovely letter/envelope. One assumes nothing bad whatsoever could be written in letters as beautifully wrapped as these. Great idea, and yes, occasionally I still write letters by hand. Just the other day. My next one will definitely be embellished like that, so thank you, Laura, for a really good idea!
