    I have not yet tried this type of finish to a tote. But I do know that the key is in how you have the measuring tape positioned. If it doesn't work one way, try turning it over and see if that fixes your difficulty.

    Very pretty tote & I'm sure the tape measure is a very handy way to close it! Good job!

    Neat tote!! I have tried this type of closure. Haven't done one that I haven't been frustrated with. ) But, I noticed that you still have the little metal pull tab still attached. You cut that off before using it, right?
