Claim: CLAIM The ornamental design for a masking tape applicator, as shown and described.
Description: FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a masking tape applicator showing the new design;

FIG. 2 is a right side view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a left view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a front view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a rear view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a top view thereof; and,

FIG. 7 is a bottom view thereof.

The broken lines in the drawings are shown for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.

The broken line(s) adjoining the solid lines along the top edge of the design in FIGS. 1 and 3 define the bounds of the claimed design and form no part thereof.

The claim is directed to only the edge shown in solid lines on one face of the masking tape applicator in FIGS. 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, and no surface on either side of that edge forms any part of the claimed design. Therefore, the flat side surface outlined by that claimed edge is unclaimed.
