RE: DIY ribbon power cords?

Sorry for not better clarifying; I had NO intention of using packing tape as the insulator for a power cord; I simply used that for the speaker cables, given its ease of application and the low voltages involved.

I was wondering if it might be possible to make a power cord using the left-over ribbon conductor, if it were insulated with appropriate heat shrink rated to 600V, or similar. Would this still be a bad idea?
Thanks so much,
Chris
