Elegant Diamond Punch Borders

I think I have a new favourite product: the Repositionable Tape Runner Refill!! I was skeptical. I thought I knew my adhesives. But then I tried it, and I’m in love.

It’s a must-have for anyone using the Border Maker System or Elegant Diamond Border Punch. Just run it along your intricate border pieces. The translucent adhesive sticks to the parts you want and not to the cut-outs. It’s amazing! A couple of tips: Dedicate a Tape Runner cartridge specifically for the Repo tape; add a sticker to set it apart from your other adhesives. When using, it’s helpful to have a scrap piece of paper underneath. Give it a try!
