6. Adhere Liners to Envelopes

Finally, adhere envelope liners to envelopes using your adhesive of choice.

Tip – Go easy on the adhesive!: Just a trace of glue or a few pieces of tape surrounding the top perimeter of the liner is all you need! Too much adhesive will result in a lumpy, bumpy liner!
