This is the actual stash that's in my craft room at all times. All different sizes of painters tape.
When I sit down and think about it I use painters tape with my Silhouette a lot. Like a whole lot...here are 10 ways I use it when crafting with my Silhouette.
For example...as an alternative to transfer tape or transfer paper.
...as a holder for small items that need to remain upright and steady so I can put tiny pieces of vinyl on them.
....as a way to clean my Silhouette cutting mat and get rid of all that gunk, papers, dust and fibers that make my cutting mat not so sticky
....as a way to perfectly measure an inch, or two, or three...
....for a perfectly straight line base line when placing vinyl or a stencil to a surface. (On wine glasses, filling the glass slightly with water will also give you a base line.)
....as a hinge in the hinge method...the key to placing a perfectly straight, centered and even design or stencil.
...to protect surfaces from paint or etching cream
...to keep my vinyl rolls rolled.
...and to hang wall decals with the flip method.
