Step 3: Measure the edge of the envelope to the end of the paste on the envelope then measure the same amount on your liner following the original line. You can use the envelope as a guide to create the second line.
Step 4: Cut out your paper along the line that you just created.
Step 5: Place your envelop liner inside your envelope to ensure that it fits properly yet still leaves you room to seal the envelope later.
