The purpose of this project is to modify a cellotape in order to avoid the need of a scissor. In fact this design allows the tape to dispenses itself. This design was inspired by a similar one made by Zhichuan Tang.
It's super simple and super useful. Watch the video for an example.

Step 1: Needed Material

  • tape
  • cutter 

Step 2: Do a V Cut Into the Tape

  • Start with a little v-shaped cut on the top of the tape (see second pic.)
  • Slowly enlarge the cut with the cutter.
WARNING: the tape is stikky and quide hard to cut, please be patient and do not hurry while cutting

Step 3: Enjoy Your Self-cutting Tape

If the length of the pieces of tape is too long, add more v-shaped cuts to the tape.

<p>Simple and effective !! </p><p>Thanks for sharing :)</p>
Thanks ? If you have any improvement, please share!
The video is private, can this be changed?
Very neat idea. Will try to remember this one ...
Nice, but you waste a long time pulling on the strip (beginning of video). Another trick is needed here. Or buy a scotch tape
i'm searching for this new trick :)
Wouldn't some Scotch tape be easier?
And more expensive?
Have you a link of the product?

Neat. Good idea, so long as you don't mind having increasingly shorter pieces.
You can have longer pieces if you want. It depends on where you keep your fingers
This is a good prank if you don't make the cuts obvious. One good deep cut and enemies are made.
yes, you should use a surgical cutter to made less visible
