Question Right Tape for Acetate

Good day to you all,
My question to my crafting family is what is a good tape to use for an acetate box. I am currently wanting to make acetate boxes and tops for my boxes using acetate, but hate to see the tape showing.
What do you use?

I have used the red-liner tape for acetate boxes. It's still holding, years later.

I would like to know this too myself to attach it to a card or something. Usually I see people hide the attachment points.

In the meantime....

What kind of boxes? To hold card sets? I buy those. I'll come back with from where-but they are available in a lot of places.
Ellen hutson has them in 5 packs for 4.99
Crystal Clear Boxes - A2, Clear Bags - Ellen Hutson LLC

Clear Bags has 25 I think for 12 which of course is a better price but do you need that many?

Once in awhile I just treat myself to things that make my life easier.

This is the sort of box I've used red-liner tape for: Acetate Box Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

For adding acetate to a card, if it's a small piece (like a mason jar to hold flowers, for example) I'll use double-sided tape or my Xyron X. Otherwise, yes, I'd hide the adhesive strategically or make a feature of fixing it, and use brads or eyelets.

That's a nice box Sabrina! If I made it bigger I could use it for Christmas biscotti.

Any dry tape (like red line, Scor-tape or tape runner) will eventually dry and crack if it’s exposed to sun. Unless of course the formula is designed for outdoor use or is specially designed to be impervious to light. I’ve made many 3-D paper crafts and home dec items only to find them ruined when the adhesive turns hard and yellow. But this is just a caution as maybe your boxes won’t be exposed to light.
