To turn sharp corners:
1. Flip your tape over opposite the direction you want to turn, so the sticky side is face up, and flatten.
2. Flip the tape back over in the direction of your turn.
3. Flatten the corner again and you’ve got a crisp corner!

To make curves:
1. Stick the end of your tape down to create an anchor.
2. Crease the tape slightly to turn and flatten the crease.
3. Continue creasing and flattening as you continue down the tape and soon a curve will emerge.

The more you turn at each step, the tighter the curve.  Also, the thinner your tape, the sharper you can make the turns.
