Sellotape Sticky Fixers Double-Sided 12x25mm 56 Fo&hellip by Sellotape
Completely useless. I used them yesterday to stick up my son's alphabet frieze, which is divided into sections of just four letters at a time, so each section is about the same surface area as an A4 sheet of paper. I used four pads per section, one in each corner. This morning, half the frieze has already fallen down. Have resorted to good old blu-tac, but didn't use it the first time because I didn't want the frieze to appear lumpy underneath. I wouldn't bother buying these again but maybe they would be useful for making birthday cards etc.

The size chart indicates that this equates to a W7 and EU 37.5. But if you check any other size chart on the internet, a size 5 is EU size 38. So I ordered the size W7 and ended up with UK size… Read more
