I’m pretty excited to talk about tape runners today because they pretty much changed my life. Well, not so much my life, but they’ve certainly made crafting with paper a heck of a lot easier!
Instead of busting out an assortment of glues or getting your hands sticky from other tapes, a tape runner allows you to apply a double sided adhesive quickly and smoothly. It’s great for paper projects like lining envelopes, making garlands, or general scrapbooking since it’s acid free. It also comes in handy when wrapping gifts.

The hold is surprisingly strong and you can choose whether or not your tape is permanent or repositionable. Once the tape runs out, you can keep the dispenser and just buy refills. They’re relatively inexpensive and run anywhere from $4-$5. If you don’t already have one of these in your crafter’s toolbox, I recommend picking one up stat (this one is my favorite)!
