First let me introduce Little Monster, one of my newest favorite finds. Lisa Fyfe, the woman behind the Little Monster brand, is a successful graphic designer who has designed several book covers (I even have a few of them in my bookcase!) She has also recently opened a new shop on Etsy, where you will find fantastically designed paper goods (see bottom photos). Lisa is also the author of the Little Monster blog, here you will find beautiful taken photos and delicious recipes (that you will want to make immediately btw) - these are just a couple of my favorite elements in her fabulous blog! And as a super special treat Lisa is sharing with us a tutorial on lining envelopes using fun graphic paper.
DIY ENVELOPE INSERT BY LISA FYFE
This is a great DIY project to step-up up any envelopes you have lying around. You can use any pretty paper that you like. Once you have made your template it is so easy to keep duplicating these pretty inserts into all of your envelopes. I made some this weekend to go along with some of my cards.
Tools you will need: Ruler | Pencil | Scissors and/or exacto knife | Glue | Envelope | Pretty paper
Cut out the middle section of your envelope; so that, you are left with the back and top flap of the envelope.
Cut out the glue portion of the flap of the envelope.
Trim of 1/8 of an inch off the sides and bottom. This will allow the liner to fit into your envelope.
You have now created your template. Slide your template into an envelope to make sure it fits correctly
Use this template to trace an outline on the back of your paper. Follow your outline and trim.
Glue the insert into a new envelope.
