"Tab Connector"

G. Rouse 2005

"TAB CONNECTOR" is the answer to our mystery piece.  It is used to join two notched tabs on RMS Banners in order to create half sized apertures (openings) in the Matrix.  These half sized apertures help to smooth out the two  "bumpy" edges on RMS Banners.

Most of the time the bumpy edges are no problem, but occasionally you may want to square off your design.  Use the Tab Connector to create the half apertures and straighten out the edges of your graphic as shown below.

Notice the up and down pattern of the lower edge of the RMS Banner. Also take notice of the tabs pointing down at left and right angles.

......................... The protruding tabs have notches on the top and bottom sides. Swing adjacent tabs toward each other. .......................
..................... Intertwine the "Tab Connector" (shown in gray) with the two notched tabs (shown in white) to create a half sized aperture for holding balloons. .......................
......................... .......................... Load a cluster of small bubbles into the half apertures to create
...............................

a smooth edge to your sheet of balloons as shown to the left.
 

TAB  CONNECTOR  FOR  BUILDERS

There is a "Tab Connector" for RMS Builders as well as RMS Banners. It is simply longer and has more notches to fit the longer tabs on the RMS Builders.

 

BUY  TAB  CONNECTORS  FROM  ROUSE  INTERNATIONAL

You will find them listed online at:  http://www.rouseinternational.com/ catalogs/gen.cat.connector.tabs.htm

 

SALVAGE  TAB  CONNECTORS

You can salvage tabs with seven notches from old RMS Builders.  Just cut them off with scissors.  They work beautifully as tab connectors on RMS Banners.

 

OTHER  SPLIT  APERTURES

Tab Connectors are especially good at splitting apertures in half along the outer edges of RMS panels.  It is often very useful to split apertures inside the borders of RMS panel as well.

Notice how the smaller bubbles split up regular apertures along the back of the E.  By arranging the colors in the split apertures we achieve a vertical and straight back to the "E" where this would not normally be feasible.

Using the Tab Connectors you could also straighten out the left and right edges of the panel holding the "E".  Download the following RouseCIPE for more information on making and using Split Apertures.
