Are you looking for a hassle free way for your scrapbooking needs? Then look no further! Have I got the perfect stationary item for you. The Kokuyo Dotliner Glue Tape makes gluing a ‘nightmare-free” experience without fail. If you’re anything like me, no matter how hard I try to be neat and perfect the glue gets EVERYWHERE... yet since I’ve used this clever little double sided sticky tape, I’ve created lovely scrap books without the stress of gloopy glue.
It’s not just limited to scrap booking needs either; card making, school projects, DIY projects, vision boards and more can all be made neatly and quickly with this neat little item. No more waiting for glue to dry, no more crinkled paper where the glue has FINALLY dried, no more mess or peeling the paper off of double sided sticky tape; this nifty roller does all the hard work for you and allows you to stick paper or card together instantly. All you do is place and roll.
I’ll be honest... I’m a BIG cat lover. I have two little kitties and love anything ‘cat’ so it was the initial cutie patootie design that caught my eye – a pot bellied kitty playfully drawn on the front of the tape. But that isn’t even the wow factor. I kid you not; when you roll the tape it comes out with different little cat silhouettes!! It’s genius and makes me go “awww” every time. Now I find myself looking for anything to glue just to see these cute kitties. It’s a great piece of stationary for kids too as a school glue as it’s not bulky and will keep them entertained. Can you imagine? Your kids are actually looking forward to homework?! Can I get a “HAZAAR!”? Clearly this product is great for kids and big kids (like me), a-like!
When handling the tape it’s nice and light, smooth and with subtle grips on the side for easy handling. You don’t need to use a lot of pressure either for the tape to come out – it just rolls so smoothly creating the perfect line with every roll. Once you’ve rolled your desired amount, you simply stop and lift. Much easier than guesstimating and ripping off normal double sided tape right? It sticks really well too so make sure you’re placing your paper in the right place before you press them together. In comparison to glue sticks or the usual double sided tape it really makes life so much easier as all you need to do is uncap, roll, stick, re-cap and you’re done! It not only saves on time but saves on mess too.
There’s 11 meters of tape inside each roller so plenty of tape that will last a while. The width is 8.4mm so for me it’s the perfect width for card making etc. For larger areas I tried rolling two lines however as the tape is quite strong, I definitely didn’t need to use that much; just something to keep in mind.
The cap doesn’t detach, it just flicks open so there’s no risk of losing it or the tape drying out; very handy in my eyes. When you’re finished, just flick and click the cap back into place and voila! The tape can be stored nicely in your pencil case, drawer or sit comfortably on your desk.
I love the colour too, it’s a nice hue of blue. Not only on the outside but the tape colour too! You might be thinking “surely that means you can see the blue through the paper then?” But alas no! Even through the whitest of paper you can’t see the blue shining through; it’s just for you and your buddies to see whilst you’re busy gluing... and I know you’ll want to show off this adorable product to your mates! It’s too cute not to.
