*I put this tutorial together while making the monster missionary match game.
NOTE: The heavier the tape, the better. The cheap stuff is flimsy and hard to work with. The dollar store stuff is worthless. Scotch has a good heavy duty tape. After a year in the Primary Music Leader calling I've done this with all types of tape. :)
NOTE #2: This WILL make your scissors sticky. Especially with the heavier tape. The good news; scissors can be washed. :)
NOTE #3: I did not mean for my examples to have the same body position. They just want to say 'hi'! Both with their right hands, apparently.
|1. Pieces are glued or taped onto cardboard backing (a cereal box, in this case)|
|2. On a clean surface, completely cover the front side. Row by row by row of tape.|
Overlap rows a little bit. Give yourself plenty of room around the border.
You'll be sticking tape to the other side of the tape hanging off the border...
|3. Flip it over.|
The tape will hang over the edge. Do not let it fold back on itself.
|*Now it's face down. See? It's a cereal box. :)|
|5. Trim the excess tape from around the edge. Leave a border of tape all the way around.|
Tape should be stuck to tape, there shouldn't be any sticky spots.
|* Can you see the clear tape border?|
|Another picture, for good measure.|
