Default Terifically Tacky Tape Red backing

Someone may have thought of this, but I just had the lightbulb idea a couple of days ago. I put cheap Dollar store double side tape on a scrap piece of paper and when I peeled off the red backing, instead of it grabbing my pants leg or back of my shirt, I put it on the scrap piece of paper. It worked wonderfully. When I filled up one scrap, threw away and started over again.

Great idea! That peeled off piece drives me nuts getting stuck all over everything but the trash bin. LOL TFS!

Scor-Tape has a paper backing - no static, no plastic, no scissors required.

I really need to try the Scor-tape. Do you use it just the same as the redline tape?

Check out the Miracle Tape by Viva Las Vegas Stamps. I have found it a great substitute for Sticky and Score Pal tape. 55 yards for not very much money. Great product.

Is the score tape available in stores or do you have to order? I live 55 miles from a city and usually buy my supplies at Wal-mart, H.L. and Archiver's.

Scor-Tape is available at www.scor-pal.com , as well as via other vendors.

I agree with the benefits shared by Valerie. Plus, there is no "faint pink" color to interfere with some of your lighter work, such as I had experienced with the red line tape.

I never had trouble with the pink colour on the redline tape. But have experienced the difficulty with the static-y backing.

I get a 2 way tape from a dollar store here that works really well and i don't need scissors. The dollar store is called Top Dollar. They carry tons of scrapbooking items. Like papers, embellishments and stickers. all only $1-2 usually. Obviously not name brand but they all say acid free and archival safe. If nothing you can use it for non-scrapbooking projects.

Thanks for the tip. I've always used Red backed tape for my strong adhesive projects, but after watching Beate use the Score-tape I thought I'd look for it. Found it online, bought it, then talked to my "local" scrapbook store, and she started buying for the store. She started in small samples, but it sold out so quickly she can't seem to keep it in stock for very long. The biggest advantage, and why I've changed to Score-tape is not only for the lack of static, and that it's a strong adhesive...but you don't have to use your scissors to cut it. Just tear it. I love it!!

My up-line gave us this idea to avoid the static of the red peel off - place a piece of tape on the side of your trash bin and stick it there to grab the piece off your fingers. I always line my trash receptacle with a grocery bag anyway, so it works like a charm.

Another vote for the Scor-Tape. It's just as strong as the red stuff.. and the paper backing is so easy to peel off. I used to have a terrible time trying to pry up the red plastic liner without messing up the adhesive underneath. No more staticky mess either. I think I bought mine from Paper Trey. Gina K. sells it too. I bet if you Google it you can find a bargain.

Thank you so much!! I use the dimensionals with the red backing and hate those little static-y things. They are always stuck to me, somewhere! I love my red line dimensionals, and now I have a solution to the backing problem! Thank you!!
