Highlighter Tape For Music

Removable Highlighter Tape comes in a package of 3 colors: pink, yellow and green.  These tiny rolls of transparent colored tape can be placed on music to highlight repeat signs or anything you need to stand out.  It can be written on, so if you have borrowed music and need to write in fingerings they can be done on the tape and then peeled off when you turn in the music.  We have more uses for this than expected, and it works well.  Tape is 12mm wide, dispenser is about 1.5" by 1" with cutting edge,  Because sometimes we change our minds about what we want highlighted!
