I was thinking about trying to make one myself. I have a case of
rolled paper tape. Any chance you could share a picture or two?
The other thought I had was to shear fan-fold printer paper into
narrow strips, but the paper shear I have access to is not
sufficiently precise to get a consistent tape width.
