Follow these very simple steps to create a dramatic look. I measured my envelope liner template on the paper, and then cut accordingly. Then I used the double-sided tape to adhere the paper to the inside of the envelope liner. It is important to use tape and not glue, because glue will ruin the paper. And voila! As simple as that!
