It’s that little sneak of paper that really pulls the invitation suite together. The envelope liner adds something extra to the whole package, especially in the case of a simpler invitation design. A liner gives the look a chance to “play” and creates a pretty surprise for the recipient opening their mail.
My obsession with envelope liners is real. Not only are they perfect for wedding invitations, but also can be used to freshen up any envelope. There are several places you can purchase ready made envelope liners, but I love creating my own using paper I find. I’m sharing my favorite sources for both!
Many ready-made envelope liners can be purchased from specialty paper shops. I’ve also found places, locally and online, that sell gift wrap or unique paper to create your own envelope liners. Some of my favorites (click names to open):
Probably the biggest shop of ready-made liners (at least that I know about), with envelope liners in every solid color. PaperSource also has envelope liners with foil finish and various patterns. I adore their marble print liners!
Both ready-made envelope liners as well as unique paper to DIY. Etsy also has digital liners for purchase, meaning you can buy the patterns and print on your own. Search “envelope liners” on Etsy and the options are endless!
My most popular envelope liner, pictured below, is created from Rifle Paper Co wrapping paper. They have fun and playful patterns that pair well with wedding invitations as well as everyday envelopes. The hand drawn floral patterns are my absolute favorite!
From bold geometric patterns to whimsical watercolor to fun animal prints, Revel & Co has gift wrap sold by the sheet so you can get as little or as much as you need. I especially love their “shop by color” option on their website.
Each time I come here, I end up in the gift wrap aisle. The Container Store has some of my favorite wrapping paper, perfect for cutting into your own envelope liners.
Authentic handmade paper really makes for a beautiful envelope liner. It is super thick and has great texture, making your envelopes feel extremely luxe. I used World Market’s handmade paper for the liners I created for The Big Fake Wedding invitation suite.
I love perusing my local TJ Maxx for fun gift wrap. Often they don’t have many rolls in the same pattern, but you can find complementing papers to create different liners for your envelopes.
Michaels and Hobby Lobby
Scrapbooking paper works wonderfully for creating your own envelope liners! Both Michaels and Hobby Lobby have a wide variety of paper, so it is likely you can find something to match your invitations. The scrapbooking paper is also a very affordable option for envelope liners.
