For this week’s Freebie Friday Give-away we are spotlighting and giving away two 36 yard rolls of 1/4″ wide Red Liner Tape donated by the Sunny Stampin’ Store. For those of you unfamiliar with Red Liner Tape, it’s a super-sticky, super strong double sided adhesive that is sold under several different names including Red Liner Tape, Sticky Strip, Wonder Tape, Terrifically Tacky Tape, This to That Super Sticky Tape, to name a few. It’s sold both on rolls of varying widths and lengths as well as sheets of different sizes. It’s WAY stronger than the regular double-sided adhesive you’d use in assembling cards and scrapbook layouts, and will adhere to more materials. So you can use it on paper, glass, metals, fabric, you can use it with glitter, flocking, beads, buttons, metal and more. Because it’s heat resistant you can even emboss with it!
For today’s video tutorial we are spotlighting the red liner tape – what it is, what it’s used for and how to use it. We also showcase it used with glitter and microbeads.
One of the things I really love about red liner tape is that in addition to the obvious uses of holding your projects together, you can also incorporate it into your projects to create decorative effects. For example, in the card below, the glitter stripes were created by placing red liner tape along lines in the patterned paper and then adding blue glitter. The video for this card is available HERE to Paper Crafter’s Library members (remember you have to be logged in).
Now, as discussed in the video, red line tape isn’t only sold on rolls, you can find sheets of it as well. In this acetate card below you’ll see an example of a project where a stem and flower was die cut out of red liner adhesive and then decorated with different colors of glitter.
Of course you don’t have to die cut the sheet, you can use it whole as in the example of the Altered Microbead Frame below. I took a wooden frame, painted the edges, applied patterned paper to the front of it, and then covered the entire front of the frame with a sheet of red liner adhesive. Once that was done I sprinkled clear microbeads all over the surface of the frame to cover the entire sheet of adhesive. As you can see from the pictures below, it creates a beautiful frosted glass effect.
The videos and instructional handouts for the card above and frame below will be made available to Paper Crafter’s Library members next week.
