My tape dispenser rocks!

Take 1 sheet of 12x12 Lost & found from Tim Holtz ( I used the little square page for a collage look)

Roughly sand your tape dispenser (i used a nail file!) for some grip and cover in modge podge. I only have gloss, really have to get around to getting the matte

Layer on the paper, put a layer of modge podge on. I massaged with my hands as you can tell from my dirty hands. On tricky corners add slits in the paper and fold around the dispenser

Finished- now to add 3 coats of modge podge

One tres cool tape dispenser! 
*Tips- makes sure you push any pockets of MP out from behind the paper.
Don't use thin paper or too thick card, it won't work
After the first coat of MP check on it to make sure none of it has lifted

Offically in <3 with Modge Podge and now I get to peel my fingers for the afternoon!


  1. Great idea Lou, perfect way to be able to simultaneously use and save your Tim Holtz paper!

  2. It kills me to use it but at least now I'll always see it!

  3. PS: I love peeling my fingers afterwards too!

  4. This is so cute! What a great job you did.
