    Default some questions (about altering items and scrapping)

    so i have some questions for u ladies.... since i've been on an altering items kick lately

    1- when u alter things like cds, coasters and clocks etc and include pictures on them. do u usually print them in really good quality on regular paper and modge podge over them or do u mat them almost like u do in scrapping and an album?

    here are some examples:

    2. what could i use to punch holes in cds (etc) to make a cd album?


    thanks ladies for any help/feedback in advance.

    Whenever I've altered an item, I just mat like I would normally do for scrapbooking. But I've seen some of the projects with Modge Podge and I think they turn out great. The altered tins, etc. would be better than way in my opinion. I just haven't purchased any yet. (keep meaning to do so) So I guess it depends on what you're altering. Mini-albums are fine just matting.

    As for how to punch holes, I wonder if a regular hole punch would work? I've never punched holes through CD's, but maybe the other's could help.

    I've done both...modge podge over photos and sometimes not. Just depends on the look I'm after.

    As to the whole punch...the cropadile will do anything! LOL

    I agree about the cropadile. I used it to punch holes in galvanized tin buckets for centerpieces for a friend's bridal shower, so I am sure it will do CDs.

    I have never done an altered project, but I was considering picking up some modge podge (or borrowing MIL's) to make DS a colors or alphabet book.
