You know that beautiful batik dyed paper you bought thinking it would make a bea-youuuuu-tiful gift wrap? Well, think about that for a moment. Batik. A dye design made using a wax resist.
And what sticks to wax? Well I can tell you that tape DOES NOT.
Every type of tape and adhesive runner I had was tried, and failed. Eventually I ended up GLUING the wrap. haha! And if nothing else, the raffia ribbon will help hold it all together.
It's a gift. The pretty wrapping is made to come apart, right?
