Packing Tape strips

Laminate With Packing Tape
June 4, 2015 – 10:52 am
Use the paper trimmer to cut them all out along the lines/borders:


For my particular project, once I was done trimming, I ended up with 10 individual bookmarks.

Next, grab your packing tape and tear off a strip that is a little more than twice as long as the bookmark. Lay it sticky side up on your work surface, taking care to minimize the amount of fingerprints you leave (grabbing it by the edges works best). You don't want a big ole fingerprint in the middle of your laminated paper!

Carefully place the bookmark down on one end of the sticky side of the tape. To avoid bubbles, lay one edge down first, and gradually push the rest of the paper down onto the tape, smoothing it down with your fingers as you go. This can take a couple of tries to get the hang of, but it's worth it to avoid bubbles!

This is what my bookmark looks like sitting on the tape. It's hard to see since it's clear tape, so I added the arrow to point out one edge.

Now grab the far end of the tape by its edges and bring it towards the end where you placed the bookmark. *Beware of static cling!* Line up the edges, and begin smoothing the tape down on top of the paper. Again, start from one end and gradually use your fingers to push down the tape from one end to the other to avoid bubbles.

Here's what it will look like when it's all "laminated:"


Don't worry about the edges of the tape being perfect because you're about to trim off the excess from each side!

How do I make a homemade iPod touch screen protector without tape or plastic kitchen wrap

Packing tape or plastic kitchen wrap are pretty much the best ways to make a homemade iPod screen cover. Without those, you basically just have to look for other clear plastic and a way to adhere it to the screen.
