Jean's Post Sunday May 31

Final day for MD Hobby & Craft metal projects at AlteredPages. I'm sure our Team will continue working with the Fabulous MD products in the future.    We sure hope you have enjoyed seeing all the diverse projects made with metal.   Who knew? My project for today is a perpetual occasion calendar made from the 12 x 12 metal (magnetic) sheet from MD Hobby and Craft.   First I wiped the metal with windex and allowed it to dry just to remove any residue or oily finger prints.    I then chose a neutral 12 x 12  paper.    I chose not to glue the paper down, because you can create different designs for each month!   Use the magnets themselves to hold the paper to the board! OR use s pray glue to attach the paper to the metal. The metal allows for approximately 1/2 inch  border on both sides with 7 spaces each 1 9/16 inch wide to accommodate each week.   The height can be larger since you will only have 5 rows however you want to leave room fo

Perforated Metal Mini Album

Hello everyone, and welcome back to my end of the month post.  As you know by now, we have been featuring products from this month's fabulous sponsor,  MD Hobby & Craft .  The design team has made some wonderful projects for you that should really get those creative juices flowing.  And for my last post of May, I hope to continue some of that inspiration. I knew I wanted to make a book with a metal cover, and I had a 12"x12" piece of the Lincane perforated metal sheet left.  It was a natural progression to determine that I could get two book covers (front and back) if I cut it in half (6"x12") and then in half again to make two 6"x6" covers.  (A guillotine style paper trimmer cuts through the metal sheets like butter). Cover the three cut edges on each metal piece with silver foil tape.  I used 2" duct tape (not Duck tape) that is used to insulate heating ventilation pipes.  I cut it down to 1/2" strips and applied half of

Kitchen Memo Board

Hello friends!  I have a magnetic memo board project for you today.  My kitchen is decorated with roosters so that's the theme I went with for my memo board.  And while I'm still deciding if it is going to stand on the counter or hang on the wall by the door, I think this fits in beautifully with my décor. I started with a 12" x 12" magnetic steel plate from MD Hobby & Craft.  I don't have any steel in my kitchen and my appliances are all white so I knew I would be covering the entire sheet. I had this old-fashioned catalog print scrapbook paper from one of the old retired  Mailbox Muse kits.  It fits perfectly with the homey feeling of the roosters on the Altered Pages Year Of The Rooster collage sheet.  Spray glue was used to coat the sheet and adhere the scrapbook paper because it covers evenly and doesn't add any bulk the way a layer of wet glue might.  The paper was trimmed a little smaller so that I wouldn't have any issues fitting it a
