Scotch? 224 Removable Tape, 3/4 x 650
I have used this tape to make my interior design portfolio. It works very well because I can remove past project and replace them with new ones. It doesn't leave behind a residue, and it removes very easily.

Removable yes, but it leave a sticky 'Residue'!
Recently for a first time I bought this tape because it was marketed as being "removable". But after mounting some 200 photographs to foamcore posterboard for a display presentation, after the display was over and I went to remove the photographs, I found that the adheasive on the tape was now stuck to the back side of all the Kodak prints, which could NOT be removed. The adheasive is now stuck on to the back of everyone. I was able to easily get the tape off, but never expected this to happen as an end result.
I will not be buying this tape again, and I would certainly NOT reccomend it to anyone who wants to temperally mount photos unless you don't care about the photographs afterwards!

Scotch Removable Tape
I use this tape constantly. As a quilter and sewer I use it instead of pins to attach a pattern to fabric or other media. The tape makes it easy for me to cut out the pattern and the pattern lies flat so I don't get any distortion like I do when I use pins. I use my rotary cutter on a self-healing mat and have never had any trouble with the pattern shifting. I also use this tape to secure the ends of thread on spools where there isn't any other way to secure them. The tape doesn't gum up the thread and I don't have spools of thread that unwind!

The Joys of Removable Tape
One of my favorite craft items is Scotch? Removable Tape for a variety of reasons:
It turns any thing into a Post-It Note. Bits and pieces I may want to use on a scrapbook page or card can be taped down indefinitely while I get the rest of the elements together.
It makes a great mask for sponging, misting and stamping. I even use it on rubber stamps themselves to eliminate a word or portion of the stamp - just remember to remove the tape before putting stamp to paper.
It can be used over and over again. I have little pieces of removable tape on the edge of a shelf next to my desk that I use until the sticky is gone.
It helps keep things in perfect alignment. I use it to tape a small see through ruler to my projects so I don't need to hold it down while working. I also use removable tape to transport perfect alignment.
I wrote even wrote a blog post on Scotch? Removable Tape with a tutorial on transporting perfect alignment. I just love this stuff.
