    1.) Nothing is stopping you from cutting the pre-measured strips into smaller pieces and using it in several places on one pkg.
    2.) Glue Stick??

      Great suggestions!

    Thanks – I’m too cheap to buy ‘fancy dispensers’ and such so I usually just cut small pieces and stick them on the edge of the table before I start; then there’s no problem with needing an extra hand to hold the paper and grab the tape etc…

    I’m thinking now maybe glue sticks won’t hold that great when they dry? Rubber Cement might be better; it shouldn’t ‘wet’ the paper like white glue does and yet it should peel away ok when being opened…something to play with at least to see which is better; lol — there you go an article idea for ya’ ;-)

      Yeah, I also just stick a few pieces to the table before I start.

      You might be right about glue sticks…it probably depends on what sort of paper you’re using. Rubber cement is a good idea, but the fumes are sort of icky. Maybe paper tape (like the kind that’s paper backed?) is a better solution?

    oh , i like it Scotch Pop Up Tape


  • bekey

    dont you waste less plastic with the pop up? if you use a refillable dispenser for tape it all still has a plastic center right? and of course the ones you throw away when they’re empty are a waste. i dont even own tape right now so i know nothing about it. i do have a refillable pop up dispenser with elastic strap for your hand that i got on clearance but its empty now.

      That’s a good point. I’m not sure how much plastic is in the middle of the refillable spool versus the pop up refill.
