In get to tape points, you want to account for the TAPE Sizing into the entire sq. size, so you will begin by creating rows 1, 3, and 5 the proper measurement, and then insert the sizing of the tape into the width of rows 2 and 4. You will start by portray each and every other row, even though the in amongst rows will have tape protected element of the squares. The moment you paint each and every other row, then you will go back again in, and begin to change tape all around.
