Resource - Tips and Tricks: Tapes Used 5 Ways
Tape is a versatile scrapbooking product. While working on my projects using scrapbooking tapes, I couldn't help but think about how convenient it is that you don't need to use adhesive for these beautifully patterned strips. Yes, obvious, I know, but it made things go so quickly and smoothly. Here are a few ways to use the same tapes over and over.

Create patchwork accents using bits of tape. 1. Rip small bits of tape and place them onto cardstock. 2. fill a rectangular piece of cardstock with the random bits, mixing patterns. 3.
