DIY Lined Christmas Envelopes

Posted on December 15, 2013
Hi Everybody! I hope you are all having a good weekend! I’m almost done with my Christmas shopping, and finally started wrapping some of my gifts! It was one of those perfect Christmas afternoons yesterday as I was wrapping presents by the Christmas tree, watching one of my favorite Christmas movies, drinking hot chocolate and watching the snow fall outside (even though the snow part only lasted for about a half hour!) Now onto finishing our Christmas cards! And speaking of Christmas cards, I have a really fun and easy little project to share with you today. These Lined Christmas Envelopes are a fun way to make plain envelopes a little prettier, or to make them match your wrapping paper! I was recently inspired to make these whilst at work in my office. I saw some envelopes made by someone like Office Monster and decided I wanted to add my christmas touch to them. Here’s how you can make your own…
Wrapping paper or scrapbook paper
Paper, pen & scissors
Glue stick
To make these, first make a template for the paper lining out of a plain piece of paper (measure out how big you need the lining to be, then draw it on the plain piece of paper and cut it out). Once you have the template, draw around it on your wrapping paper or scrapbook paper (I used a colorful Christmassy plaid pattern that I thought would look nice with the red envelopes) and then cut it out. Insert it into the envelope, and position it where you want to place it, then glue it down using a glue stick.
Happy Crafting, Everyone!

    Lovely, quick simple idea. I’m wondering if I can get away with just a fancy envelope like this for giving money to teenage relatives rather than making them a card too, I don’t think the boys would mind/even notice. This might save me quite a bit of time, maybe a matching rectangle on the front for their names. Thanks for the great idea!

      Thank you! That’s actually a really good idea! You could do little envelopes like this and make them into gift card holders! I might just do that as well! 🙂

    This is a great idea, it really makes the envelopes that much cuter and nicer. I’ve made lots of cards this christmas but now want to touch up the envelopes too. Thanks!
