I am trying to use the CSS Sticky Tape Feature. It works ok except the sticky tape shows 4 ticky tapes instead of 3. It is probably due to the figure group.

<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<style type="text/css">
figure, figcaption {
display: block;
}
#picture{
width:100%;
overflow:hidden;
padding:20px 10px;
}
#picture figure{
float:left;
position:relative;
width:200px;
-webkit-transform:rotate(-3deg);
-moz-transform: rotate(-3deg);
-o-transform: rotate(-3deg);
-ms-transform: rotate(-3deg);
transform: rotate(-3deg);
-webkit-backface-visibility:hidden;
}
#picture figure:nth-child(even) {
-webkit-transform:rotate(5deg);
-moz-transform: rotate(5deg);
-o-transform: rotate(5deg);
-ms-transform: rotate(5deg);
transform: rotate(5deg);
-webkit-backface-visibility:hidden; 
}
figure:before { 
content: '';
display: block;
position: absolute;
left:5px; 
top: -15px; 
width: 75px; 
height: 25px; 
background-color: rgba(222,220,198,0.7);
-webkit-transform: rotate(-12deg);
-moz-transform: rotate(-12deg);
-o-transform: rotate(-12deg);
-ms-transform: rotate(-12deg);
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="picture">
<figure role="group">
<figure>
<img src="TestVideos/Clouds.jpg" width="200" height="200" />
<figcaption>Clouds</figcaption>
</figure>
<figure>

You had double opening figure tags at the top and double closing at the bottom.  You need to open and close your tags in the same order.  I removed the figure tag at the top and closing at the bottom.

It would have been semantically incorrect to nest figure inside of figure anyway.  Ofcourse that is academic, as the figure was not introduced until HTML5, so every reference to figure results in a validation error.  it will probably run alright in Firefox and Chrome.  May run in IE9+ if not in quirksmode or set to compatibility mode.

I IE <9 it is not going to work at all.

Get rid of the float:left.  That tells the browser not to put them on the next line if there is room on the current line.
