I made a layout using it! Yeah, someone unloaded it on me as a newbie years ago, and while combing through my stash recently for a garage sale, I saw it. And thought, I am sick of looking at this stuff. I ought to use it (becuase that's part of my mantra this year-use it!!) So, I cut some banner shapes, and put it on the page. And it didn't kill me. And now I only have 3 1/2 more rolls to go until it's gone.

Here's my page, hope the magic mesh doesn't burn too many retinas! Fiero Love
(and this is kind of cross posted with the stash busters challenge too. Because if using magic mesh on a challenge isn't stash busting, I don't know what is!)

What super old stuff are you holding on to in your collection in hopes of using?

I your LO. I STILL have some MM. Wow, now that's a blast from the past.

I have some Lil Davis metal tab thingys that I have been hoarding. They would be great for doing mini books.

I like it! I remember when that mesh was all the rage. I never did buy any, but all my sb friends were using it like crazy.


It's fun that you pulled out something from your stash and used it.

I still have my magic mesh, and I still use it. I love the texture it creates on a page.

I've still got some, but it's one of those things that I have in a drawer and don't remember to use. I'll have to put them out where I can see them. Your l/o looks great with the mesh. Maria

Your layout looks great! I've been using some "old" papers lately. Autumn Leaves, Kaisercraft, Fontwerks, etc.

Your Magic Mesh banners look really cute! Now I'm thinking, Why didn't I think of that? I got rid of all my Magic Mesh about a year ago when I found it at the bottom of a drawer. TFS, nice LO!

Great layout!

I have a drawer full of different colored MM. I still use it occasionally here and there. I like the texture of it.

LOL! I just used some red magic mesh on a heart ornament project last night. I have had it forever, even forgot what exactly it was called. How funny.

See, there is a way to make it look good these days. I have a boatload of it.

I also had a Fiero for about 15 years.

I didn't get into this trend but good on you for using it. I find if there is something that I want to make myself use to keep it within my view then it is more likely to get onto a layout

I still love MM haven't used it in a long time. I only purchased about 4 colors because someone told me that it is the same stuff that you can get at Homedepot or othe home improvement stores in the dry wall isle.

With the dry wall stuff it is white and you can use your ink pads on it and match anything. Just sayin.

That's a great use for it. I only bought one piece...it's a lt. rust color. I think I'll dig it out & use it as a mask.

I use it every now and then on sports pages. I have colored regular dry wall tape but I prefer the already colored mesh so it is 'solid' colored. I had a huge roll of silver and only have a little bit left!

I still have some mesh from years ago. I'm with Bethie, I have no problem using the "old stuff" either. I'm not a trend follower so if I like it I use it, no matter how out of fashion it might currently be. I like that saying - everything old is new again.

Thanks for sharing about the drywall tape! Ive been thinking some stars made from this would be neat, but in more of a golden yellow color.

I really like the texture too, and it adds very little bulk to a page/project.

I am hoping that someone soon will do something "new" with eyelets! Still hanging on to them!

Are you kidding me you still have eyelets. I love those things and still have plenty of them. However when I use them I start getting all nervous about not having enough.

I have lots and lots of the flower eyelets and little to know use for them. Would anyone like to trade flower eyelets for regular round ones?

I have a black roll of MM, only ever bought one. I used it on Halloween tags. It makes a decent "web" look.

I have almost used all of my magic mesh up
It is not one of those products that I reach for all the time but sometimes you just have the perfect use for it.

I still use it! Used it last night!! Like your page. It turned out really nice. And no one would think you were using old supplies. I'm gonna try to remember to use the mesh in your banner method. That was a great idea.
