How to get out of a sticky situation.....

Ha!  Love the title!

Today's post is actually a mini tutorial on Sticky Strip.  
This super-strong adhesive will hold together a box or pouch like a dream! It won’t lift, curl, distort, warp, or wrinkle. You can also use it to adhere other craft-related embellishments, such as beads, glitter, or embossing powder.

■ Double-sided, pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive.
■ Acid free
■ 1/4" wide
■ 10 yards
■ Comes in a zippered plastic bag for convenient storage

This stuff is the greatest- it has super duper strong adhesive and is great for a variety of different applications. 

However, I sometimes have trouble getting the adhesive not to stick to the red liner.  Well here is a quick and easy solution: 

Apply your tape as you normally would.  

Grab  your bone folder and rub the red liner back and forth a few times, burnishing it, causing the adhesive to soften a bit and  stick to your paper and allowing the release from the red liner.  

Then just take the tip of your bone folder, or your fingernail and pick the red liner up from the SIDE, not the end.  


Hope you enjoyed this tip- come back again tomorrow!
