Guide to Adhesives: Double-Stick Tape

What is it?

The basic staple of the scrapbooking world has adhesive on both sides. It typically is sold on a roll from which you cut or tear off the needed length. It comes off the toll with only one side of adhesive exposed so you can position it before removing the backing.


Use with:

  • paper
  • lightweight embellishments
  • ribbon
  • loose embellishments like glitter and microbeads
But not with:
  • curves (It is hard to manipulate linear tape around curves.)
  • narrow items (The item has to be wider than the adhesive to prevent the adhesive from showing.)
