This wrapping paper is nice but I could not find a tape that would stick to it other than packing tape which takes away from how pretty the paper is. It is thick, sturdy, heavy duty wrapping paper. The prints are lovely. There are no grid lines on the back but the paper cuts really well (does not rip or tear while cutting it). Maybe if you're really crafty you could figure out something that would work better than packing tape but I'm not crafty. I eventually opted for different wrapping paper and I'm not sure what I'll use the rest of this paper for (maybe I'll let the kids use it for their crafts).
