Silhouette has this product called double-sided adhesive paper and they sent me some to create with. The product is geared more towards using with glitter, flock, and things like that, but it can be used for so much more! I decided to make some paper tape with it, but I bet you could use fabric too.

You can see a little bit of how it works from the back. I think it’s a great thing to have if you want to add small special touches to projects. This is way easier than trying to use glue to get glitter on! And I can say that this stuff is really sticky and holds strong. Once it’s on paper, it’s on. And so is whatever you put on it.

I made this sign with my final product to go with some family pictures. I have been in a home decorating mood as of late which is very welcomed because I have a lot I want to do.

To make paper tape all you need is some paper (I used scrapbook paper), some double-sided adhesive sheets, and scissors. *Ignore the glitter. I was going to use it, but then didn’t :)

Since I didn’t want to make a ton of each, I cut up the paper into smaller strips.

Then I took a sheet and peeled off the yellow paper

and placed the strips on the sticky side, right sides facing up.

Then I cut out each block of different paper and grabbed my ruler to measure for small even cuts. You can make it as thick or thin as you like. Then cut out the strips.

Now you have paper tape ready to adorn envelopes, packages, art, and more. You just peel the back paper off and it will be ready to stick on. Let me know if you make some :)
