Default Re: How to apply double sided tape

It does matter. Also, I had the same problem with some ribbon, even with the "good stuff." The end (on the bottom of my partially wrapped clips) would sometimes start to "lift" with certain ribbons. Now, I line with the tape, but put a dot of glue at the very end. Best of both worlds - very smooth, evenly lined clips, and *very* secure - no more "lifting."
