Hi all! I'm new to this forum. I can't wait to read all your posts! But I have a question. I have some gold and metallic blue wire mesh. It came with a scrapbook kit. I want to use it for card making, but I don't know what to do with it. Any suggestions? Also, it's loosely held together, so I need to make sure the edges are secured when I do use it. Otherwise, pieces are continually falling off.

Hi there and welcome Smiley. I would need to see a picture to best figure out an answer to your query. You are able to upload photos here after you've made 10 posts so have a look around and comment on some projects or ask a few more questions here and there. If you would rather post a photo first you can do so, it won't show up right away but a moderator will make it visible for you very quickly.

Ok posted a picture... I think. Once approved, will it automatically show up in this thread? Or do I need to find a link to it and post that? I'm not sure how this works. Thanks!
And thanks for the welcome, too!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Well, some ways I can think about using it would be to place it behind something translucent or transparent, like acetate or vellum, and either glue, sew, staple, or secure it with brads or something.  Or glue it on directly - embedding it in an adhesive layer that will dry fully - like Mod Podge, or my preferred medium for something like this would be gel medium.  Or use it as a background element, like on a scrapbook page, where there are several items secured in front of it, which would hold it in place and make it less likely that it would be touched and fray.
