Creating 3D Effects with Foam

Want to give that greeting card a lift or get elements to “pop off” your scrapbook page?

It’s easy with double-sided foam tape. The easy-to-use tape is available in many craft, stamping, scrapbooking, and discount stores. It is sold in packages of pre-cut squares or circles that are ready to use.

To use the foam tape pieces, simply peel off one side of the backing paper to reveal the adhesive and attach it to your stamped image. Peel away the other backing paper and press it to your card or scrapbook page—it’s that easy!

Take a look at a few of the ways we’ve used foam tape on our projects, then try some foam tape for yourself!
