I suffer from a condition in which I have no control in lifting my eyelids. To function, I take medical tape and touch it to the lid and pull it to just above my eyebrow. This helps me in driving and many other things.
Now, I am tired of wearing that ugly piece of tape. I want to make a lovely STICKER that would have the design of my choice--like a tattoo I could PEEL off when done. The A brand has Clear--but I bought it and it is FROSTY.

So, yesterday I purchased the A brand 8.5x11 glossy clear sticker project paper. I think it may work. But, my scanncut is not working properly. It will not recognize all the items I printed!
If I could fine 1.5x1.5 inch round transparent stickers, that would work!
I have a Cricut Expression and xyron sticker maker. I thought I would put this out there because you folks may have a great idea for me. Printing and cutting would be ideal because I would have all I need at once!

Can you apply washi tape to the medical tape?

I thought about washi because most of it has flexibility which I need when stretching it from the lid to the brow. The problem is that it is too narrow. I need about 1.5" in a circle/square. I could put the washi tape on the medical tape--but it would be a messy look. But thank you for the input. I have not seen any wide Washi have you? I just printed out some butterflies and they are going good-tomorrow will print on the labels. Hope it works. I tried to punch circles in some laminate and that was hard.

Again, thanks!

Yes, I've seen sheets of printable washi, standard printer paper size, and also just large printed and solid color sheets of it. I know the particular ones below are discontinued, but there might still be some out there somewhere.

Thanks for your response and suggestion. I will look now for the washi sheets! This will work in my Bug or scanncut once I get it going again!

I put "wide washi" in the search here at the super store and several 1 1/2 to 2-inch rolls came up in the listing.

Thanks for this! I am all over the place trying to accomplish this and did not think to search the store.
