These items will assist you in adhering objects to your cards or scrapbooks.



3-D Foam Tape


Double Sided Foam Tape

1. 3-D effects can be created on cards by using either 3-D Foam or 3-D Pads. The tape normally gets sold on a roll. The advantage is that you can cut a piece out to the size you need. This is useful when you have larger pieces.
