I use this dispenser for pretty much every scrapbooking project that I do with one exception...unlike it's intended use...to simply roll it along and have it dispense at even intervals...I use my dominant hand to simply hold it and with my pointer finger advance the tabs one at a time and then I place them exactly where I need them with my other hand! I find I don't use as many this way and since it is a quality product they hold very nicely.

I really love this dispenser. It saves so much time for me it is unbelievable. I was previously using double sided photo mounts, which take forever to tear off the little tabs. I have been very happy using this product. The refills are a little difficult to get the hang of, but if you just follow the directions on the inside of the box it is no problem.
I had one that I purchased when all the company had was the ugly color of grey. So when I saw the purple one I just had to have it, even though the grey one still worked perfectly. I love how it fits in my small had with out me having to stretch my fingers.
Trying to find the perfect adhesive can be challenging. With refills being so costly, I'm always looking for adhesive that gets good mileage. I recently rediscovered my Herma tab dispenser after running out of refills for my Tombow. And I remembered why I love this tab dispenser. Using just a few tabs is all you need to get superb adhesion. And if you need to reposition an item, you can remove it, carefully, and reset the item. Refilling the dispenser is my least favorite thing, but all in all, this is a mainstay in my scrap supplies.
I love my Herma Vario tab dispenser. All you have to do is roll the dispenser across your paper and evenly spaced square adhesive tabs are put onto the page. They stick very well and are much better than using a glue-type adhesive which tends to warp and bend paper. The only downside to this device is sometimes the square tabs get jammed and don't roll properly, however, I usually prefer to pull the squares out one by one and place them individually- that way I only use what I need and I can put them exactly where they need to go.
