4. Cut out as many liners as required.

5. Roll glue around inner edge of liner. Slip inside envelope, 1cm from edge. Press down firmly. (Note: The glue roller ripped the fragile old paper I was working with. It is ideal for use on thick, new paper but I would recommend using a glue stick, double-sided tape or spray adhesive if you are using delicate paper.)

I won’t lie, this was quite time consuming! But if you’re after a budget-friendly addition to your envelopes, DIY liners could be for you.
