Tip: Use Paper Clip to Mark Tape End

By Litter Gitter 155 568

Tape end marked by paperclipTo keep from losing the end of postage tape, place a paper clip on the sticky side of the tape just below where you are making the cut. Store the tape with the paper clip, and you are ready to go next time you need to use the tape. The paper clip is easy to pull off and thick enough to keep from losing the end of the tape.

Tip: Paper Clip as Masking Tape Marker

By Stacey Henke S. 2 2

I don't know if anyone does this already but I discovered something that helps me tremendously! Put a paper clip at the start of the tape. When you need some, take your length and then put the paper clip in place before tearing it off. Now you'll always know where the end is, no more turning and turning and searching. :)

    Tip: Use String to Mark Packing Tape End

    By anne peters 9

    If you find it hard to locate the end on packing or strapping tape, place a thin ribbon or string under the last portion where you removed tape from roll. Next time it's easy to just lift and use. No more picking and searching for the beginning of the roll.
