Tape is for more than sticking something together.

It’s Wacky Wednesday! This is the day where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever gotten glitter into your ink pad? I have. I have scraped, begged, and pleaded to no avail. But I didn’t know this tip at the time.

Take packing or mailing tape and roll it up like you would if you were getting lint off your clothes. Then grab the glitter off the pad much like you would the lint. Here are a couple of tips. Make sure it is the clear mailing tape. Masking or duct tape leave adhesive on the pad. You might want to also have an ink refill handy after you get done cleaning your pad.

Happy Crafting!

Sometimes backwards is the right way.

I was the kid that walked to school backwards just because I could.  And my Mom was saying the whole time “please turn around so you don’t trip and fall”.  Well, that was the first time.  By the end of the treck she was telling me somewhat forcefully to “walk right”.  Well, I didn’t die, trip, or even break a bone.  Now I am not saying to defy Mom, but I am saying that sometimes backwards is the correct way.

In the case of our glimmer papers backwards or upside down should be your only way.  Flip that shiny side down and then trim.  The glimmer (or glitter for some) dulls your blade on your trimmer much quicker than other cardstock.  (While I appreciate you ordering we don’t need to hurry the process.)  So flip it over next time.
