I saw this awhile ago and thought I'd try it out. I used 2 different types of tape. The first one is regular package tape and the second was wider box tape. Both worked good, sometimes the tape came off with just the words and sometimes it ripped off with the paper. I like the effect of being able to see through the tape a little. So the ones that came off with more paper I ran under the faucet with warm water and then rubbed it until I could see through it a bit more. I used a dictionary page for this project, not sure how a thicker book page would work. Very easy to do and I'm anxious to try it them out in a paper project soon. I will update with some pictures when I use them.
I live in the Midwest and have a obsession for re-purposing items in
crafts. There will be a large variety of things posted on here, if I like them I
usually list them on Etsy to see if they raise any interest in someone's
Many of the items I make for my friends because
they just don't have the time or craftiness...is that a word?... it should
be! So I will post my creations and probably post some of my flops,
because let's be honest, we crafters have many of those too.
Drop me a line if you feel the need to say howdy!
