Vellum Tape

Whether I am scrapbooking, making cards, or using it with other paper projects, I think vellum is a nice way to add  a layer of depth and texture. You can place a piece of vellum over words or an image to soften them. It also works great to print or stamp directly onto a piece of vellum then place it over a patterned piece of paper. It's quite versatile.

The tricky part of vellum is adhering it to another piece of paper invisibly. Seeing a strip of tape between paper and vellum would ruin the softening effect created by the vellum. With a little care and the right kind of tape, you can make vellum nearly float above its background.

Vellum is a translucent type of paper. That's great if you want an image to show through. It's not so great if you don't want to see the tape that's holding it to another piece of paper.

If you use regular double stick tape to adhere a piece of vellum to another piece of paper, this is what happens. That tape stripe just isn't pretty.

Of course, you could try a more delicate type of adhesive, like a Tombow. I love my Tombow and have used it for countless paper projects, but it still is not the best material to use with vellum.

The solution, Scotch Vellum Tape. It's not quite as simple to use as a Tombow or double sided tape, but with a little effort, it's a nearly invisible way to stick vellum to other papers.

The vellum tape is double sided and comes in a roll with a paper backing.

I'll show you how it works.

I'm going to stick a piece of printed vellum to a patterned piece of paper.

Turn the vellum face down.

Cut two small pieces of the vellum tape. Less is more.

It helps to disguise the tape if you place it behind words or images.

Use a bone folder to rub the paper backing of the tape, smoothing the tape onto the vellum.

 Remove the paper backing.

Carefully place the vellum onto your patterned paper. Gently rub over the taped area with your finger to ensure that the tape is secured to the background paper.

Even on close inspection, the vellum tape is nearly invisible allowing people to focus on your beautiful creations instead of a messy piece of tape.
