Easily secure and position your dies and so much more with the Maker's Tape that is part of the Making Essentials Collection by Sizzix. Included are two rolls of tape that features a versatile low tack and is translucent. Try out masking an area for your next project too, you will love the versatility of this tape! The tape has gridded design and each roll measures approximately 2 1/2" x 6.5 yards.
I was so excited to see the grid marks for making frames and borders for some stacked dies...but there was so little tack, the dies shifted with the slightest move. I could not even get them to my cutting machine without having to reposition several times. I used double amount, just trying to get the tape to stick the thin die down. The grids were helpful when spacing them out, but no good if they don't hold. They do not tear paper at all. Sadly, I bought two packages.
This tape works so well to keep my project in place and make my dies stay put before I begin cutting. Doesn't tear my projects when I remove it and I use the same piece over and over. It's more of a paper type tape than washi-ish. Not quite as tacky as washi, but sufficient to hold everything still when I need it to. Great tool.
I realize that this was always advertised as a low-tack tape but I find it is too low-tack. First I used to hold paper onto a die I was running through my Gemini Jr and the paper shifted in the sandwich anyway. Then I tried to use it to attach a mask in my MISTI which is just an up-and-down stamping technique and it still moved.
