Bev I have copper tape, and it isn't but 1/4 inch wide.... what is that ...about 1/2 cm? I have done pressed flowers between glass like this. the object is to center the thin pieces of glass along the sticky side of the tape, it leaves a very thin margin on either side which is folded up onto the front and back of the glass as evenly as possible. Is that what you were asking about??
Bev, I know you can do it! It was a pain in the you know what for me to find the glass, because i was looking for cheap, cheap, cheap. in the end i bought microscope slides and i broke quite a few. Then I thought of going to a glass and window repair place and asking to buy their scrap pieces cut to size. and they agreed. It was quite some time ago, +/- 3 yrs. Then it took practice to get the tape on it the right way, but the good things was that the tape peels off pretty easy to reposition it as needed. Once I had it in place correctly, I used an old credit card to smooth the tape onto the glass edges.
