Default Re: Double sided tape

I only use it to line the clip- I wouldn't expect it to hold the bow or flower on.

I have seen some done with the tape and it looked great, but I have also seen some that didn't hold and the bow or flower just fell off...

I guess it just depends

I also use it to hold together two overlapping ribbons. Like when I want one smaller size to be on top of the bigger size. Works great for me that way too!

Yay, my tape finally came! The mail from the US to Canada has been CRAZY SLOW lately, stuff is taking 2-3 weeks to get here, sheesh!

So excited to try it out... now I just have to go back through the boards and figure out the best way to use it

Thanks to everyone here, I never would have found out about stuff like this, never mind where to buy it or how to use it, without everyone here!

Default Re: Double sided tape

I've become so hooked on the stuff not only do I buy it by the caseload to sell to others, I use it up like mad myself!!

At first I, too, was a little confused on how it was supposed to be quicker.

And maybe my way can still be improved but one thing is for sure: I actually ENJOY it now! Before, I would get the finished bows all lined up and then it would be grumble grumble, stupid clips LOL

What I do:

I cut my ribbon strips by the dozens. Dozens of the most used colors (korker bows are what I do, and 99% of korker bows will include either white, black, red, pink, or shocking pink!)

My husband heat seals all the ends (he actually does my heat sealing in general. ladies, this man was born with a gift. His heat sealed ends are to die for!)

So now I have a baggie full of sealed ribbons. I can go anywhere now to line clips! At DD's swim lessons, in the car (as the passenger of course LOL) you name it.

I prefer most to just sit on the couch and watch some 90210 Netflix DVDs however
I put a snack tray in front of me and line up 4-5 of the ribbons. Then I just use the tape to line them in a row. Thats something that takes a little practice with holding/applying the tape.

When those 4-5 are on the tape, I lay 4-5 more down (keeping the others on the tape and just sliding them off the table) and line those. Pretty soon I have this gigantic strip of ribbons attached to the tape.

I like this because I can also roll it up and take it and a pair of scissors with me someplace and its so easy to cut the ribbons apart! I cut the ribbon at the end. I can then either store it like that in the bag, or start to put them on clips. You probably with enough practice could skip the step of cutting them, and cut them after you put them on the clip, but I dont mind that part so much so I do it for now

I will say (like another posted mentioned!) that when I go to put the bow on, I will attempt to tug up the end on the pinchy part and put a dot of hot glue (because like her, I am OCD about it for some reason!) it it's cured awhile, its very tough to pull up. But since I am about to hot glue the bow to the clip anyways, it really is no big deal to make one tiny dot.

Phew, sorry for all the rambling

I am just excited to finally like this part of the bow!

If you need some to try, shoot me a PM or an email to [email protected]
I use the Specialty Tapes brand in the 1/4"! I just love it!!

I love the tape! Not that I'm a pro or anything, but I have tried glue and tape and the tape is just so much easier and it's CLEANER looking too. There is no hot glue messy spider web stuff all over the clippies - that looks so unprofessional.

Someone on here told how she lines them and I love it. I line a long piece of ribbon with the tape, use my wood tool to seal/cut the ribbon at 4.5" strips w/out burning thru the tape backing and then just peal and stick. It goes really fast.

I have never used the double sided tape. Do y'all just use it to line alligator clips? I hate lining them, so this sounds so much easier and better. Where do I get the tape, which is the best and what width should I get?

Korker Mom,

I am looking for 1/4" tape ASAP. Are you still selling it? If so, can you please tell me the price per roll, amount on the roll, and how quickly you could ship it? Thank you, Melanie
