Tuesday Tape Tip

Hello tape fans! For today's Tuesday Tape Tip we're going to show you how to use our double sided tape and crepe paper to create a fun technique for your cards. Sometimes you don't have the right supplies for a project and that's why I love the creative process. When in doubt think outside the box. Just about everyone has bought crepe paper for party decor but have you used it for paper crafting? I always find crepe paper in big double rolls at Big Lots for 99 cents and in a variety of colors.
I happen to stock up on white because if I need a certain color I can use Glimmer Mist to easily transform the white to any color I need for my project. For today's project we are sticking with white.
Here's the card I created with our double sided adhesive, Paper Doll collection by Crate Paper and some crepe paper

So to get started I have 3x5 1/2 piece of cardstock that I used an EK Success border punch to add scallops.

Line your border punched side with the adhesive. See how our adhesive goes on in a smooth full strip of that!

Next add some adhesive to your strip of crepe paper. Mine is 24 inches in length tho I did not use it all but yours will vary by the size of your pleats

Start folding the crepe paper towards you, the folds can be big or small...whatever your preference.

When you flip the paper back over this is what you'll have.

Now you're ready to assemble your card and voila! My finished card size is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2

Here's another example of crepe paper on a card.

We hope you'll try this tip with your Love My Tapes adhesive and be sure and send us a pic if you do for our Feature Fridays. For more info on how you can be spotlighted on the Love My Tapes blog click here.
