Securing the End of Packaging Tape

Securing the End of Packaging Tape - Popsicle stick marking the end of a roll of packing tape.It's so frustrating to lose the end of packaging tape and have to spend a lot of time picking at the roll until you find it.

When I was preparing a package to put in the mail, I thought this would be a good idea to share again on Thriftyfun as it has been years since it was posted. Now that we have steps, its makes it much easier to explain the how to use this method.

Steps:

  1. When you use the tape for the first time, place something on the end to hold it up a little to keep it from sticking. I use a piece of a Popsicle stick.
  2. Pull out the amount of tape you will be needing. Lay it on the package where you want to place it.
  3. Securing the End of Packaging Tape - Popsicle stick on length of tape
     
  4. Remove the wedge after the tape is stuck to the package.
  5. Place the wedge on the end of the roll where you will be needing to cut the tape.
  6. Securing the End of Packaging Tape - place wedge near cut line
     
  7. Cut between the wedge and your package.
  8. Securing the End of Packaging Tape - cut between the wedge and the package
     
  9. The tape will drop down on the roll and the end will not be lost.
  10. Securing the End of Packaging Tape - stick will keep the end accessible

Great minds think alike! I use a LARGE PAPERCLIP the same way as your popsicle stick idea. I do the same for a roll of double stick tape. You are so right about how frustrating and time consuming the search for that tape end can be.
