Do you love to use sticky strips on your projects?

Do you have problems, like I do, with getting that red liner off?

Well, I have a quick tip for you, but first let me just give you the benefits of using sticky strip.....

-Acid Free

-Super strong hold *projects are less likely to come apart once adhered together.

-Using sticky strip is a thrifty way to adhering big pieces of cardstock down without using your snail or tombow glue.

-Perfect for those die cut boxes and using Stampin' Up!'s chunky glitter and

-You can use sticky strip for adhering your ribbon, adhering heavy items and this is my first choice for creating those pockets on your scrapbook layouts and adhering my pictures down.

Now, the quick tip.

In order to get your red liner removed from your adhesive you will need to use a bone folder, and what your going to do is adhere your sticky strip down, take your bone fold and rub it over your sticky strip three to four times put a little pressure on the bone fold when you rub.. this helps make the adhesive under the red liner warm up. Then, go to the end of the sticky strip and remove the red liner from the adhesive with ease.
