I LOVE; this idea. Two questions....(1) what is the name of the flower stamp that you used and (2) if you said the tape comes off the paper easily, how do you keep it on the card front? Doesn't it come off easily?

I don't see the difference between putting money in this tape versus just stamping a strip of paper and gluing it to the card like we've always done.

I, also, use papertape from the bandaid area from my drug store. It works just as well, too.

Is this supposed to be removable tape or does it matter either way?

What kind of double-stick tape are you using?

This tape can usually be found with office supplies.

I agree with Dana's comment above. I don't see the difference between putting money in this tape versus just stamping a strip of paper and gluing it to the card. ???

I meant the double-stick tape she put on the back of the card.
Barbara  |  Wed May 9, 2012 at 11:57 AM
or take strips of paper and run them thru the Xyron

Nice concept but video didn't need to be 15 minutes. Too much unnecessary stuff just to show a simple technique.

Papertrey Ink has another version using score-tape with tissue paper in one of their Make it Monday videos.
