velcro: how do i love you?
let me count the ways.
in case you were unaware, the most AWESOME product has debuted on the market – 3M velcro picture strips. these puppies do everything that velcro is supposed to do (stick and unstick) and they come with a sticker-like backing that will reliably adhere to most surfaces and then (with the use of the magic tab), unstick when necessary.
you know how (for those of us not endowed with a level or a particularly discriminating eye), you have to keep renailing the picture hook over and over again to get your picture situated exactly where you want it in relation to other picture frames? well, these strips take care of that, without the extra holes. stick ’em to your objet d’art. stick the art to the wall. simple. off a smidge? restick. bored of your arrangement? rearrange.
i’ve used them for everything else from hanging homemade tiles to remote controls to small boxes off the bottoms of shelves. my daughter has a rotating gallery of velcroed art hanging on the wall over her bed (earthquake-safe AND kid-friendly).
check them out – you won’t regret it.
