Red Means Strong

Probably the most annoying thing with off the page projects is that if you choose the wrong adhesive all of your hard work can be let down when the project warps or pieces come undone....

In putting these Christmas Decorations together I used X-Press It TripleTac to adhere paper to chipboard, but when it came to securing the main seam the angles prevented using wet glue... the perfect solution was X-Press It Double Sided High Tack Tape, nothing budges this tape, it's flexible too, so easy to get into and around grooves!!

It is important to save it for the tough jobs, so make note (if you haven't already) that the High Tack X-Press It Products carry RED badging, as opposed to the standard blue badging.  No need to keep them in their packaging to understand which tape is which, just rely on the inner badging as seen above... and of course the super powers of this fabby adhesive!!Pin It

Tape is the Solution...

I recently found the most scrumptious CREAM Rub-ons, I was so excited..... until the firm realisation that the lovely strips of cream lace were not going to stay in place on my card..... a little more than frustrating!!!

Rub-ons are generally pretty fine so I didn't want to risk them splitting, but still wanted to try to re-use them on my card.... in comes X-Press It Double Sided Tape!  I applied the tape to the card stock rather than the actual rub-on, this was a sturdier option and allowed me to re-apply the rub-on without another disaster!

Applying the tape to the card stock and then applying the embellishment also helps to keep items in a straight line, try this application method with ribbon or paper strips as well, you won't be disappointed with the result!Pin It
