One note on the sheet metal at Home Depot, there were multiple 12x 12 cuts in the same location. Some of them were not magnetic. Make sure the one you buy is magnetic.
- Start with a line of hot glue. The metal will cool the glue quickly, so you will need to work quickly. (Taking pictures for a blog will allow the glue to cool too much and you will have to peel it off and start again…just in case you are planning your own blog post…hehe!)
- My biggest tip for you, add a piece of foam tape to each corner. The ribbon was not quite enough to keep the sharp corners covered up. I added a small piece of foam tape to each corner. The corners are no longer a potential safety hazard. Yay!
- Do your corners in whatever way makes you happy. I know some people are really persnickety about such things. I just folded over the edge and made sure the front corner looked nice.
- Continue on to the end of your metal sheet. Be generous with your glue.
