I didn't have any Tissue tape. I checked on -line and it was $9 plus shipping for one roll. I was not going to pay that much.
I had a roll of 3/4 " Paper surgical tape that is used for bandages on people with allergies and I used that. It worked fine, folded with no problem and just for fun I tried stamping on it and that works too.
I don't know what I paid for it, but I am certain it was not $9.
You can buy it in any Pharmacy. For our members in the UK at the Chemist .
I buy my surgical tape of all place the Dollar Tree. There are two clumsy people in my household and they use the tape all the time. That would be me & my DH.
Surgical Tape makes good Washi Tape too.
