Thank you, I was wondering what you use as well.


ooh! Thanks for this. I'm definitely a glue stick kind of lady but I think I need to buy glue tape for making envelopes!


Thank you!
I'm using a glue stick morst of the time, but I think I will try out the glue tape for making envelopes. It somehow seems easier to me than with a glue stick.

Really good info--thanks so much for sharing!


I use A4 sheets of label paper and then cut out with decorative edged scissors. Instant stickers!


If I'm printing faux stamps, I often use sticker paper to print them on. If you're in the UK, The Works sells it in packets quite cheaply.


Have you ever used Tombow's version of the adhesive runner? I haven't had much luck with it and wonder if the glue tape is a step-up. Thanks for the post!

Hi Melissa,
I havent used the Tombow one, no. On the whole, I find refillable machines to be less reliable.
