No mess, no leftovers, just a clean cut..And when you go to make a puff, wrap the marabou in a circle, and be sure that the end of the tape meets and slightly overlaps the other one. Glue both ends to tape together and there you have it! A mess free, perkier, and secure trick that saved me from losing my mind with feathers!
