Alright so I really didn’t need another tape dispenser! However, I received an e-mail from Flowers to Flourishes and they had a great price, so I bit the bullet and order it.
This is the new pink ATG that is smaller than the big 714 or 700. This one has been made with the crafters in mind. When you purchase this particular ATG they donate money to the Susan Komen Cancer Research (nice).
It also comes with two rolls of the gold 1/4″ wide tape that is acid free/photo safe. A roll has 36 yards of tape and depending on how you buy it, it can be as low a $1.25 a roll (you have to buy 12 rolls) or around $10.00 if you can find it at your local craft store. The Pro Glider’s tape is only 13.3 yards and runs $8.99 a roll. Now I didn’t figure in the 40% coupons that you can use on these from HL, M’s or JA’s. But it doesn’t take a rocket science to see that this will pay for itself in a short period of time just on the savings on the price of the tape.
Now, this is not particularly pretty, and what you are looking at is the backside of the instructions on how to load the machine that is kept inside.
I took out the card and used some of my favorite pattern paper and dressed up the chipboard instructions.
Now that is more like it. I was reading on a message board where you could spray paint them but I like the Hot Pink with the Black/White Hounds-tooth. Besides with keeping it hot pink it reminds me to pray for those ladies that are battling Breast Cancer each time I pick it up and use it.
Hmmm, this will not replace all of your tape runners because the size will not enable you to get into places but this will take care of most of them. I think I am going to be one happy girl!
