Mousetrap Memo Holder

Ok. I know what you're thinking...
A Mousetrap?

YES...well actually these below in the pics are a RAT trap.

I liked the rat traps because they are bigger.

So lets get started.

Buy a NEW mouse or rat trap

get your paints, papers, stickers, glue guns, craft accessories ready

And Create!!!!

First there are a couple of metal pieces that you will have to "detach" from the trap.
You only want to be left with the square spring piece.  That is the part that will hold your MEMO!!

Then paint your trap your color of choice

Then grab some stickers/paper, etc and start to decorate.

I used stickers and put them on before the paint dried.

And it's okay to put things hanging off the sides

Here's the 2nd one at its starting point

Then using my glue gun I started adding other elements

And here they both are finished!
 I love how they turned out and these would make great gifts.
And if you need just a little something extra as a gift you could use the mousetraps since they are smaller.

Just add a picture hanger on the back and hang on a wall.

So adorable and easy!

  2. It was only a matter of time...after all, those mousetraps do have a bit of intrigue to them with the clip part.

  3. So you HAVE invented a better mousetrap or at least a new use! I think this is a really clever idea! Ann

  4. Love This idea! Very clever. Found you on Inspire me Monday...


  5. So darn clever and creative of you! I'm kind of speechless, wouldn't of though a mouse tray could be used for something so cute! So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – your creativity helped make the party a success!
