If you ventured into making a cardboard book like I talked about in a June post, you may have also bought a ginormous roll of the packaging tape (water activated). The thing is, you either need to get dozens of friends to also make a cardboard book to use it all up, or come up with other ways to use it. I was looking at my cardboard book pages, and started thinking to myself, I wish I had used a border punch on the edges of the tape before I stuck it down. So I punched a few strips of the tape just to see what it looked like. There is lots of potential there, I do believe!
Then I found myself using other punches on the tape. You can lick and stick them, but I prefer to use a slightly wet brush to activate the adhesive on the tape. Either way, you have some instant stickers. You have lots of positive and negative shapes to use. (In other words, I like the holes in the tape as much as the circles punched out of it.) And that roll will go a long way!
