Who doesn't love a little shimmer inside their invitation envelopes? In this post, learn how to make your own glitter lined envelopes with our pre-cut liner papers. It's a great look for weddings, parties and holidays, especially when paired with matching glitter paper!
Before You Begin....Print Your Envelopes First!
If you are printing your envelopes, it is recommended you do so before lining them. Once you add the liner paper, envelopes will likely be too thick to run through most home printers. If you are hand writing your envelopes, you can line them before or after.
What Size Envelope & Liner Paper Do I Need?
We offer glitter envelope liners in two sizes. Please note liners are for straight flap envelopes only.
- A2 Glitter Envelope Liners: A2 liner paper (4 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches) to fit inside our A2 straight flap envelopes (4 3/8 x 5 3/4 inches)
- A7 Glitter Envelope Liners: A7 liner paper (6 x 6 3/4 inches) to fit inside our A7 straight flap envelopes (5 1/4 x 7 1/4 inches)

1. Place Liner in Envelope
Open your envelope and place the glitter liner paper inside so that it sits as shown here - directly under the gum seal and slightly to the left and right of it. The liner is designed to partially cover the flap and extend to nearly the bottom of the envelope.
2. Place Adhesive on Perimeter of Envelope Flap
Lightly fold the liner paper inward towards you as you trace the outside perimeter of the envelope flap with adhesive.We do not recommend placing adhesive all over the flap, or using a large amount of adhesive, as this can cause a wrinkly, unprofessional look.
What Glue Should I Use? - We prefer to use ZipDry, as it is designed to dry quickly and not wrinkle paper. Double sided tape can also be used for a flat, clean, professional look.
3. Align Liner & Press to Adhere to Envelope
Attach the liner to the glue on the envelope flap and press firmly, making sure the liner is straight and even. If you are using glue, you will have a few seconds to adjust the liner before it dries.
4. Close Flap and Press Firmly to Crease Liner
Close the flap with the liner attached and press the flap firmly, as shown here. This will create a crisp crease in your liner, creating a polished look.
5. Open Flap & Adjust if Necessary
Open the flap to be sure your liner is still straight and even. Adjust if necessary. Move envelope off to the side to dry, then move on to the next!
