Altered Mouse Traps


 

Altered Mouse Trap

 You can truely alter anything!
 I made these for a swap I joined on Your Paper Pantry.
 For the steam punk version I used:
Graphic 45 paper, Tim Holtz elements and flowers from i am roses. For the middle of the flowers I used bead caps and just spreaded them out. Everything else I used came from my stash and lost its packaging long ago!
 
 For the sewing themed trap I used:
 Cosmo Cricket paper, shapes cut with my silhouette. I also dug through my ever growing button hoard/collection.
 
These can be used as memo holders for the fridge if you put magnets on the back. One of my favorite ideas is fastening 7 of these together and labeling them with the days of the week- I think that would make a great to do list/calander. Just google altered mouse traps you will be amazed!
