Have you seen the gorgeous cards featuring tea bag folding in our August issue (107)? Get some extra help with how to make them by watching Alice's fab video!
Hi Alice, I have just watched your video on Tbag folding and you commented on the fact that you find it difficult to get a straight line when attaching having used double sided tape. I can also experience the same problem so now when using ds tape I peel of a little bit of tape on each side/top/bottom then I am able to place my work down without the worry of trying to rescue it if I have it at an angle and need to lift it off to try again. Once you have the corners lifted of the tape place the piece of work where you need it to be then holding it firmly with one hand you can then use the other to remove the rest of the tape knowing it will be just where you need it. Hey Presto one nicely placed piece of work.
Amazing tip Craft Nook! I will try that next time!
I used to do it like that but now only lift it at the two adjactent corners. This gives you a flat piece on the other two corners to check it is nice and straight.! Peel back when satisfied and then just lift the opposite corners and take the backing off of them and hey presto!
Hope this helps
